      • Browser or internet linking

        Love this app enough to leave notability which I never thought would happen BUT I feel it's fairly standard now to either have a browser within the app or allow the user to paste a link onto a note to a webpage. I work in music and to not be able to link certain videos and SoundCloud pages to notes is a bit of a problem. Embedding would be awesome but just an active link would be enough. Thanks

            • Create a windows application so that ipad users can sync with windows desktop at work. OneNote does that very well.

              We are a large publicly traded company and we have a lot of users would love to use Good notes at work since they use ipad but since our work computers are windows based, cant see the notes taken on work computers. OneNote on the other hand does this integration very well. The moment you take notes on ipad, it syncs quickly to the computer. I bet if you can bring that functionality, you will get tons of customers instantaneously.

              • Import/Annotate ePub files or a workaround

                As an educator, I'm always creating content for use in GoodNotes. It is an active notebook or assignment book for my students. What I need to be able to do is to import an ePub workbook (using video and audio), and have students be able to click on the video or audio buttons to see/hear, then answer questions using GoodNotes' ability to handwrite/draw answers.

                If not importing an ePub, then a means to drop video and audio that would be clickable. For example, I may place several audio clips on a page, but each one plays only when clicked. And…

                              • One Drive error message

                                Hello.

                                This is more of a support question as opposed to an idea. I just was not sure how to post the question and therefore am using this section.

                                I recently starting getting the attached error message when I attempt to attach a document by way of One Drive. In the past, this feature worked great. I would appreciate your assistance.

                                Thank you in advance.

                                • Add ability to return to tab screen from document list screen without opening new document

                                  When browsing to open a document, it is impossible to return to the tabbed document screen without opening a new document. It would be nice to be able to return to the tabbed document screen without being required to open a new document.

                                  • Por problemas con iTunes no pude comprar por 0,99€ la app

                                    El viernes al comprar la app me dio un error iTunes y no me dejaba hacerlo. Cuando me dejo de hacer eso ese error la app 7,99€. Me puse en contacto con Apple y me dijeron que pusiese en contacto con ustedes por esta vía, y que seguro que me solucionaban el problema, pudiendo adquirir por 0,99€ la app. Gracias

                                    • Syncing is very difficult and you have to change the cloud environment and hope that it would be OneDrive

                                      If Syncing with iCloud is Not working properly, please note that all users don't have space on DropBox and wish you will include OneDrive with the syncing process

                                          It would be good to be able to fill basic shapes or be able to draw basic shapes from a pallette. To be able to control transparency also.
