The Best App for Taking Handwritten Notes on an iPad

We believe that the best handwritten note-taking app is one that provides a wide variety of options and a full set of features. Notability offers both of these things, and its long tenure in the App Store convinces us that it’s here to stay.

Editor’s Note (Jan 17, 2019): An updated version of GoodNotes shipped recently, with the most notable new features including an overall cleaner and refreshed UI, improved handwriting recognition and search, and improvements to the document manager. We’ll be updating this article to reflect the latest changes in GoodNotes.

Customers who purchased GoodNotes 4 can upgrade to version 5 for free through this GoodNotes 5 Upgrade Bundle.
