How can we improve GoodNotes?

Audio recording that syncs with handwritten notes

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.

    Hi Goodnotes team, I am a Notability user just because of its recording feature and more option to add in the notes like gifs. But otherwise I love Goodnotes. So just upgrade few of these things and all the notes app consumers will love it.
    Best of luck for your new upgrade.

    In Notability, the outline of the words or drawings can be seen when playing back a recording. It’s almost like seeing watermarks. It would be good if this isn’t the case for GoodNotes... or at least there’s an option to disable and enable this, based on user-preference. Thanks!

    As mentioned, playback speed adjuster. Also, the ability to "place" a recording (from the recordings list for that document, and from anywhere else) into the physical space of the document the same way you place a picture.

    Hi! Please please add the voice recording option and the multitasking option (where you can see 2 notes at the same time). These features would be really useful.

    Hope you guys add recording soon. Need it for school ASAP! So many people has been asking this since 2014! I might as well join the Notability fans

    Hey guys, I'm a new iPad user and was doing some research to choose between Notability and GN5. I ended up buying notability (sorry) and the sole reason was audio-recording capability (I'm still not sure if I ever use it but it's nice to have the option). You've done a great job overall in GN5 and if at some point you add audio-recording I personally would use GN. Great job btw. cheers

    Audio feedback with a highlight feature that matches up to the notes you took could be helpful. If possible if you are going over notes selecting written notes and it takes you to a specific time stamp (15 seconds prior to) in the audio file would be very useful as well. Can’t wait for it to go live for conferences and professional development seminars I use good notes often but sometimes switch to notability if I want to reference back to material

    This really is a must have feature for GoodNotes 5! Please add it ASAP. We volume purchase licences and they're all going to Notability because it has this feature. Otherwise, GN5 for the win!

    Lo único que le falta a Goodnotes 5 para ser considerada la aplicación número uno en la toma de notas es la característica de grabación de audio y la posibilidad de insertar audio mp3; sin dudas sería un gran avance que consolidaría definitivamente esta app como la Reina !

    An ability to import an mp3 or audio file from a digital recorder would be cool too (and some tools to match it up)

    AUDIO RECORDING is very helpful function during documenting, meetings and conferences. That could be really more interesting, if one may let this function to be running in background as hidden mode, which will be then simply manageable just from “Add +” menu. The hidden recording is very important, when one would like to have a presentation as well as let the audience focus and concentrate just on Text-writing and drawing but not on the notifications of recording.
    The control management of recording could be defined optionally as following functions:
    1- time-stamping
    2- active for current sheet or whole document
    3- automatically deactive by changing or closing document
    4- move, copy and assign to any part of text
    5- pause, continue, stop, edit, cut and save as new
    6- export and import audio as folder or as a file

    Make imported files with links clickable, please and add audio recordings to GoodNotes 5. Note: I’m using a iPad Pro 11 device.

    audio recording would be great but Audio Import is an essential for learning languages.

    I'm learning Chinese, but any language learner will need to grab audio files to import in to notes. After class everyday, my teacher will send to me a short recording which I am required to transcribe for my homework.

    Being able to put this file into the note and be able to play back while I am writing would be fantastic. At the moment only Notability seems to do this, but this app falls short in many other areas.
