What the world is saying about us

Amazing

I love this app. It helps me keep all my business notes, digital calendars and to-do lists all in one place. I never had to worry about losing a bid sheet or having to print something to fill out a form. Love it with my ipad and pencil.
- Fabfavor, United States

Immensely useful and elegant

I use this app everyday for work and it works flawlessly I couple it with google drive and so all my notes are backed up. I have also used this to present lessons (love the in-built laser pointer). The best app on my ipad for sure.
- PhysicistWhoLikesWriting, United Kingdom

A Must Have for Every Student

A thing that all students need is order and Good Notes makes it really easy to have an organised note taking system. The writing experience is superior to other apps imo, everything is so customisable. The search tool is amazing, a big time safer!
- Carla, Germany

Improved my uni grades!

I am now a second year university student and after getting this app at the end of last year, my grades so far this first semester have been significantly improved. I believe that this is because of the text search feature.
