  • Changed to a new iPad, lost all my documents

    By Speakerboxxsupernerd
    Beware of app. I lost all of my pdf that were supposedly uploaded to the cloud. All of the documents appear blank. There go years of documents and reviews.
  • Please add ability to utilize the full width of the toolbar

    By ben salley
    Also the ability to “lock” a page into place would be quite useful.
  • Mejoras que deben hacer

    By smp@13
    La aplicación es excelente, pero deberían hacer más páginas y portadas de diferentes estilos. También deberían añadir tarjetas que se puedan hacer de manera de resumen y añadir páginas que tenga estilo de mapas conceptuales, añadir páginas con estilo de contabilidad. Por último, deberían añadir agendas personalizadas o páginas de agendas con diferentes estilos. Estas mejorar ayudaría a que la aplicación sea más profesional que otras aplicaciones.
  • Great app but…

    By Ceejames
    Point deducted for still not having ability to create page links/hyperlinks in app. ZoomNotes has had this for long time and Collanote a new app made by a collage student has it. Kind of embarrassing. But as long time loyal GN user still waiting for in app page links. Nice we can import pdfs with links and use them but the wait for getting the ability to create in GN has been way to long. The leading notes app but not the leading features.
  • A must have.

    I use this app for everything. School, journals, therapy notes, my planner, and I keep track of my medicine on here. Plus much more. 10/10 recommend.
  • App Randomly Stopped Working

    By Emm.L3333
    Literally have used this for almost a year. The app started to not load properly so I had to keep resetting my iPad. Updated the app, would still randomly not load the app. Deleted the app, and now all my iCloud data just doesn’t exist anymore. Not really sure what’s going on as of June 2022. If this could get fixed that would be great seeing as when the app works, it’s wonderful. Just lost a lot of written information that I’m not even sure I can get back now.
  • Amazing!

  • One Small Complaint

    By Neighborhood wackadoo
    I have been trying to decide on a note-taking app and I am heavily leaning towards this one! I really like how organized it is and really enjoy all of the features offered. I am looking to purchase the full version but one tiny thing is holding me back. I wish I could customize the folders like I can with the notebooks! Aesthetics are really important to me and the blue folders really just bother me! Please consider adding this feature. Thank you!
  • The Best. Period.

    By Kevinbrowns
    So many awesome features, I will use this for the rest of my life. Note taking, planning, sorting etc. It has it all. Color coding is perfect. 10/10 recommend.
