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.
As soon as you add audio recording feature, I'll switch from Notability to Goodnotes.
The ability to import Apple voice memos directly into Goodnotes would do it for me, but any audio recording or import feature is welcome.
Well, I hate to say it, but this is the only feature for which am still looking back at Notability... 😐
So, VOTED! 🙂
Please do this. I have ADHD and can never get my notes written in lectures properly because I can't write down what the prof just said and hear what they're saying as I'm writing. I got Notability specifically for this, but I hate it so much. The Goodnotes UI is so much better, but I simply cannot use it for my classes which is so frustrating. I think the entire user base would be eternally grateful if the next update you released had this feature, even if it's literally the only new feature you drop. Please, I am begging you
Very important feature to have.
Plssss put audio recording
It's been 7 years, why hasn't this been added yet? i use GoodNotes for everything but if I can't use the audio function, then I'll have to use Notability. They do it so well and I'm sure GN5 can too. Please please please.
I use Notability for lectures for this reason even though I use GoodNotes for everything else and I would love nothing more than to have this functionality in GoodNotes so I can use it for everything.
I agree that this should be added. However, even if audio creation isn't available in the app, being able to sync outside audio (such as from a smartpen or from a native audio recorder in the computer) or being able to add sound clips would be incredibly beneficial. Even if syncing with other apps were allowed, it would be a wonderful addition. Admittedly, being able to add video clips would be amazing as well (I have no idea if this is already possible. I've just started using the app recently).
Agreed, this should've been implemented in years past. If the audio only can handle recording 30 mins of audio, then please make it so we can join the recordings together. Please make it so there's a noise reduction, animation preview, equalizer, voice boost (for farther sounds) and skip back/forward 10 seconds. Also add playback speeds such as 0.5x, 1x, 1.5x and 2x

Kindly add voice note option please
We need audio recording!!!
That's the only reason I still use Notability!!!
I think GoodNotes should stay and should add audios so schools could have it

I have given this photos as an example. I want it in ios please.
Guys, I can understand this problem.
This feature will not be available in GoodNotes unless they take a chunk out and create a mixing audio tape mode.
Each of the pages in the GoodNotes document is a fully separate doc sheet. As mentioned in another idea for infinite sheets.
I think, unless they create a audio recording common to the document, as per the document standards, it seems it could be possible. They can extend the current doc format which supports the page framework to allow audio files. Having a mix-tape like recording, attaching the page ID to each touch of stroke, would be necessary. and definitely, not a better method of recording and syncing.
Highly likely, that this feature be released, if they ever attempt to provide the infinite canvas feature. Otherwise, this feature will never see light in Goodnotes.
It is just costly in terms of sync methods & storage to put all this data in the framework that Goodnotes uses.

Quite surprised they haven’t added this feature yet along with adjustable eraser size, and hand-written math equation recognition. I think adding these features would make it the best overall note-taking application on the iPad.
This is the key feature I’m looking for in a note taking app!!
Please, please add this feature, even if it costs extra as an in-app purchase. It will make it easier to understand the context we wrote our notes in, such as students who can record lectures, or people note-taking during meetings, and it will help most of your users overall. It will make your app a definite choice over competitors (like Notability), and must be an immediate priority. The 2021 new year is your chance for a great update like this.
