GoodNotes lets you take beautiful handwritten notes and annotate PDF documents. The handwritten notes are searchable and are created using a pioneering vector ink engine. Thanks to iCloud sync, your documents in GoodNotes will synchronize between your iPad and iPhone automatically.

## Make Your Handwritten Notes Last Forever ##
GoodNotes features a state-of-the-art digital ink technology that will look great even with future super-high resolution displays.

## OCR: Search Handwritten Notes ##
Just type in the search box what you're looking for and then tap Search.

## Better Than Paper Notebooks ##
Type with the keyboard, insert images, or draw perfect shapes easily; mix between any kind of papers or even insert PDF docs inside a notebook; rearrange or delete pages as you like. It is very flexible.

## Annotate PDF Documents; Fill and Sign Forms ##
Great for saving time, paper, and the environment. Microsoft Word and PowerPoint files are supported too.

## Large Collection of Beautiful Covers and Papers ##
Each template is carefully designed in vector format. There are lined papers, graph papers, music papers, and lots of notebook covers to choose from. Add your own template with an image or a PDF file.

## GoodNotes Does Not Slow You Down ##
Thanks to the powerful zoom window feature, you can write quickly with your fingers or with a stylus in a large area, and your handwriting will be shrunk automatically.

## Just Write Them Down and Don’t Worry ##
You can correct any mistake any time and it won’t become messy. The lasso tool will let you move things around or even resize them.

## Protect Your Valuable Data ##
GoodNotes features a trash function to protect from accidental deletion. It can also backup your data to Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive automatically.

## GoodNotes is Also a Digital Whiteboard ##
Your audience will not see the user interface — just the content — and you can choose which part of the page to show them. Many teachers and lecturers are already using GoodNotes to teach.

Good note!

Could easily upgrade to a 5 star app

So first, I love this app!!! It's easy to use. Intuitive in its lay out and they seemed to have thought of a lot of uses. So why did I give it only 4 stars? First, you can't collaborate with other GoodNote users. I have been using this app to journal and track horses training records. My barn manager and body worker uses the app to track health care and body work. Between the two of us, we have 2 journals that we can't easily compile and we can't see the work that the other has done without sending screen shots to each other or sending the whole journal and having to re-upload to a cloud somewhere on the regular (which is time consuming and comber some). It would also be nice if my riding student could share their riding journals with me so I can see what their thoughts were or what they were feeling during the ride. Second, the face that I had to pay for the app twice, once for my iPad/iPhone and then again for my Mac was annoying. I understand that not everyone needs both, but let's face it that most of us use it on both platforms.
Other than those two little hiccups, I love this app and would highly recommend this to others.
