    • Export photos all at once

      Please add the ability to export all photos at once. If you have a lot of photos, it's very time consuming to export them all. Thanks!!!

      • Add LIST VIEW to complement bookshelf view and enhance Dropbox browsing

        Bookshelf view is "pretty" and finger intuitive, but difficult to do advanced stuff with.

        A list view would allow long titles to be displayed properly and to quickly scan through the titles for the one you want. Even better is if the list view showed additional information such as file size and date for easy file management/sorting/deletion/search

        On that note, the importing from Dropbox feature is also too small: you can't read long file names from dropbox. Compare to PDFNotes app which not only displays long file names from dropbox, but also their file size, date, and lets you select…

        • Allow more options in zoom tool bar

          We should be able to add more things to the zoom tool bar such as the eraser, highlighter, and other pen colors

          • Selection tool

            Additionally to the current selection mechanism it would be great to have an pixelbased selection in additon to the objectbased selection. With the current selection mechanism parts of an image can not be processed. The current mechanism definitely has benefits, but in many cases it would be more efficient to select and process the are which actually is inside the ROI.

                • Fix look of "shelf". Good notes 4 is ugly

                  I am very disappointed in the aesthetics of version 4. It's very appealing. I liked the bookshelf look. Also, I can't figure out how to change the default notebook cover and paper.

                  • Let me try it for a week. I won't buy anymore notes applications until I can tell if it is worth the investment. I am interested in using it

                    I want to use GoodNotes for a few days to see if it is worth buying. I am looking for an iPad notes application but I do not want to buy another one before I know if it is worth the cost. I could not get through on your support so I am posting it here.

                    • Please enable to use the zoom writing feature from write to left

                      Please allow hand writing using the zoom feature (the blue box) from write to left and not only from left to write and then the demand for your app will be much more higher

                      • Ability to merge notes into one by merge, moving entire pages, or selected pages to a new note

                        This would be similar to importing a PDF, where you ask where to place it, above, below, or in a new note.

                        • Two way synchronization, please

                          I don't know why this fabulous app doesn't have two way sync function which most of apps have. It will give users be much more effective way to modify and move files among various devices.

                              • New categories

                                First of all I think it was not completely correct to make us pay for the last update since it is almost the same app with a slightly different graphic. I hoped to have some TRUE new features... The thing I was most disappointed by is sub-categories. Also in the 4 version they are quite unusable and all the file-management system is pretty poor.
                                I thought a lot about how your app could become perfect, but, to simplify, I just tell that folders (I mean true folders) and a sidebar could be a good idea (I also have an idea…

                                • Support two button modes for adonit jot touch: click and hold

                                  As I was searching for apps that support the adonit jot, I found that the application called "Ink" supported two modes for the bottons on the adonit touch: clicking and holding. Additionally, one of the functions that can be assigned to hold is "gestures", i.e. when the button is pressed and held, multi-touch gestures are recognized! I suggest you take a look at this!

                                    Handwritten flashcards would take GoodNotes to a completely new level!

                                    • Verbesserungsvorschlag

                                      Wenn man vom markieren ins schreiben übergeht, soll das Lineal Werkzeug deaktiviert werden, da man es sonst immer selber deaktivieren muss.
                                      Darüberhinaus wäre es hilfreich, ein duales System zu entwickeln, sodass man bei Bedarf die vorherige Seite klein oben im Eck hat, sodass man nicht immer zurückblättern muss, um die Aufgabenstellung zu lesen.
