  1. This is the UPAD APP. I did already pay for that one. I want my money back

      • Ability to change Color & Thickness at the same time

        Would be great if the picker window would not close after changing the color or thickness so we can do multiple changes at the same time. A double tap on your choice could close the picker instead of a single tap when choosing a color or thickness.

            • Good Notes on Android.

              Are you thinking to make the APP for Android? I have Apples and Samsung devices, it will be great if I can have the same notes on both. Synch between Apple and Android.

                • Provide an 'all notebooks' view

                  As far as I can tell there is no way of viewing the list of all notebooks in a single view today.

                      • Add support for Adobe's Ink AND Slide as soon as they are open for 3rd party apps

                        This concept is simply great. And would take drawing so much faster and more prisice.

                        • zoom box - who uses indent buttons?

                          In 12 months' use I've never needed to use the indent buttons on the zoom box. Does anybody routinely use these? If rarely used, maybe they could free up real estate on the menu bar? For a line- thickness slider or presets, for example.

                          • Replace 'close' icon in zoom window with 'lasso'?

                            Using 'lasso' to close the zoom window has the same effect as the current 'close' button - it closes the window. But I often close the zoom window because I want to lasso/edit/move something, so it would be really helpful to go straight to this tool, instead of needing another click in the main menu.
                            If it's something else I want - say, a custom pen colour or another line width - then I have to go to the main menu at the top of the screen anyway, so the fact that the lasso tool is selected by default on…

                            • Replace black/blue/red in zoom window with custom colours

                              Three colour options and a single line-width is fine, thanks (keep the zoom window menu bar simple). But I'd like them to be custom colours please?

                              • Have an option to merge notebooks

                                I use this app for school and work. From school I would get notes from classmates and add them to my notes. It would be great to merge those together. For work it would be nice to other peoples notes with mine.

                                  • Add function of "Return to the last-used form of Tools, including color" to the shortcut of stylus.

                                    It will be handy if we are taking notes or highlighting in multiple colors.

                                    • Notebook Collections & PDF Cropping for Annotations

                                      I really love GoodNotes for handwritten notes, and I really want to love it for PDF annotations too. However there is one small feature I feel the app lacks which is the ability to crop PDF scans that have unnecessary white space. Right now GoodReader has the ability to do this and so I have been using that app but what Goodreader lacks is palm rejection and also has a clunky user interface (in my opinion). I really wish I could crop PDF scans inside GoodNotes when annotating them. Oh also I would love it if different notebooks and PDF…
