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.

GoodNotes features a state-of-the-art digital ink technology that will look great even with future super-high resolution displays.

Just type in the search box what youre looking for and then tap Search.

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.

Great for saving time, paper, and the environment. Microsoft Word and PowerPoint files are supported too.

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.

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.

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.

GoodNotes features a trash function to protect from accidental deletion. It can also backup your data to Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or SkyDrive automatically.

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.

Super App. Apple Pencil +++

Die APP wurde von Version zur Version besser. Mit dem Stift von Apple auf dem iPad Pro 12,7" das perfekte Tool. Nur fehlt mir ein Schutz für die einzelnen Notiz-Bücher .

la migliore in assoluto per la Bamboo Stylus FineLine

Con la penna in oggetto diventa un app imbattibile per prendere appunti! Ne ho tante ma nessuna funziona bene come questa. Ottimo riconoscimento della scrittura. Aggiornamento per lutilizzo con lIPad Pro da 12.9 perfettamente ottimizzata e sia per il display che per lApple Pencil

Could be better

This app is the Business. I never worry about paper in school, this app plus the Apple Pencil are a must have for messy college students.

App très utiles pour prendre des notes

Bonne app pour prendre des notes avec une bonne précision

Great app...

I have been using this app as a full replacement for my notepad and love it. I now have multiple books for different needs and wont go back. I would give this 5 stars if there was an OCR too mark up my bad hand writing!

1 Big thing missing - and its why I bought it

I bought this app so I could write many notes with the promise of handwriting recognition and search. It does ok with recognizing handwriting (admittedly mine is not easy to read). BUT - the search ONLY WORKS WITHIN A GIVEN DOCUMENT. So - that basically means I need to KNOW where the info is - before I search. I want to be able to search across notes on different projects and customers - and get a search of my docs. Doing a find within a given document is FAR from the same thing. This little detail is not called out anywhere - it just claims searching through handwritten notes. I was told by the support team that it is in the works, but until then, I find it much less useful.
