How can we improve GoodNotes?

Linked audio recording is a must, please ADD AUDIO RECORDING like notability!!!

We need linked audio recording so that we won't miss anything in the class or in meetings!

The reason behind the success of NOTABILITY is the audio recording functionality, I use notability just for that!

Please add it.

        Being able to index the audio quickly is key ... something like, tap a button to mark the TimeCode of the recording - a marker is left on the notes ... tapping the marker takes you to that spot in the recording - or 10 sec earlier...

        This is great to hear this is in the works. I remember posting on this a while ago when I was in college. To this day I still use GoodNotes (now with a proper working Apple Pen and not fighting with a rubber stylus) but this feature would come in handy when I do meetings or interviews now.

        While I like being able to record audio with timestamping and agree that it would be nice to have, the person recording MUST BE AWARE that there are laws that prohibit the use of recording devices when the subject is either not aware of being recorded or has not given consent. The laws are pretty strict in the EU countries.

        For this reason, I do not think that this should be a high priority.

        Hi @Admin @Goodnotes Mod - Received your survey/form questions as you're looking/developing the feature. THANK YOU!

        Notability has this feature and it is tempting me to switch from GoodNotes 4&5 that I currently use.

        Note sure why this would be a deal breaker, for me notes are the key unless you could convert the audio to text. !

        Please add audio recording. It’s the deal breaker between using notability or goodnotes. It’s essential for the classroom experience.

        Please add voice recording to GoodNotes. I am always going back to Notes Plus because of this key feature. Very disappointing that it was not part of GoodNotes 5.

        Please add this feature - to me it's more important than any of the updates that were made in GoodNotes 5, and add others commented, it's the main reason why I would consider using other apps instead of this one

        Audio Recording was the only reason I bought Notability instead of GoodNotes and it’s still the only reason I don’t buy GoodNotes. It’s just the most important killer feature for me as a student

        Voice recording!!! I mean come on now! Goodnotes has been around for a while and it IS th best nite taking app.... BUT audio recording is fundamental necessity. I don’t understand why this has t been implemented yet and am losing hope. I just bought the latest goodnotes version and I’m just shocked audio still isn’t there! It’s like you’re forcing me to use a competitor that lacks your refinement but has the ONE feature I need........😐🔫

        Please continue your plan to add voice recording! Love everything else about GoodNotes, but it needs this feature for students!

      • Muaath commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The only reason that i use noteability rather than goodnotes is voice recording while writing

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It's been several years with many votes and comments, is this feature-request simply not going to happen? I was stoked when I found out any app could record and be able to tap to go back when taking on a particular section. Please add this!

        I agree totally with above ... I want to keep my bird book in GoodNotes, I love the freedom of organization at more levels, but I need to capture thier songs and calls! Also, for speeches, I like to keep a draft with an audio copy. Please consider this seriously. Recording from within the program would be great but at least let us copy files in and play audio from within.
