About GoodNotes 4 - Notes & PDF

GoodNotes is a solid digital note-taking app with more robust document management and organization tools. GoodNotes 4 lets students create a digital notebook, and then fill it with pages upon pages of digital notes. Rather than being limited to a blank page or lined page, students can customize the background with different styles of lined paper, graphing paper, and even custom images. GoodNotes download is available for iOS (iPad and iPhone) and Mac devices.

GoodNotes 4 - Notes & PDF Review

GoodNotes lets kids use their own handwriting to take notes, although students may want a stylus to improve the process. A keyboard feature is also available, though a bit difficult to find. Aside from writing in notes, students can also change up the colors of the text, highlight the text, draw perfect images using the shape recognition tool, and even insert images from other sources. Students can mark up PDF documents and images that they open within the app. Once finished, students can upload notes to multiple cloud storage accounts or reorder their notes within the notebook. Students can keep a notebook for each subject area, each unit, or whatever number of notebooks best suits their needs.

Student Engagement - Keeping organized notes may not appeal to students, but they'll appreciate it once they start using all of the features.

Productivity - Multiple features allow students to take notes they will actually find useful, organize those notes, and quickly access what they need.

User Guides - A comprehensive user guide helps note-takers explore the many different features; unfortunately, it's based on static text and images, rather than more dynamic support as kids take their own notes.

Students can learn how to take and organize their notes using multiple tools such as highlighting, color-coding, and the ability to add shapes and other images. GoodNotes also gives them ways to organize their notes, allowing them to create notebooks labeled with specific subjects or topics. Using the notebook covers to the note-taking templates, kids can customize their notes in a variety of ways, making them fit their needs. They can even use their fingers or a stylus to take notes in their own handwriting, helping them personalize and take ownership over their notes and the learning process. The variety of features makes GoodNotes a solid addition to a teen's bank of study resources.
