Review by Where's my privacy?

They don’t have a trial - This app doesn’t provide for a free trial to even see if you like it. You have to buy it right away. I bought it for my iPad, tried it for about 3 hours, testing it out and playing with the features, then decided it wasn’t for me. Now I’m out $8 which is really crappy. I would return it if they had the option or not renewed the trial if that was an option. It’s covid, times are tough. Don’t pinch the consumers wallets :(

Review by Clwentz

Good so far - It’s good at writing notes and markup on PDF’s. Have only used for a short time. 9/18/20 Having not liked version 5 I only used 4 as it is superior for all it does and how well it works but switching to a digital planner I am forced to use 5 and do not understand why 5 cannot have all the greatness of 4. I’m frustrated and disappointed.

Review by GeorgeECU

Improvements needed - The app is helpful. However, there are some improvements still missing. For example, a dark mode. Also, it would be great if the user is allowed to save documents directly in the cloud Drive

Review by m116816

Almost 5 stars - I LOVED GoodNotes 4 and just updated. The biggest thing I’m disappointed about is they took away the “draw a perfect shape” feature for highlighters. You used to be able to do it for the pen or the highlighter, but now you can only do it with the pen. Please let me draw rectangles and circles with highlighter :(. It’s how I indicate my final answer on my homeworks
