What's New:

Version 5.6.2:
This build includes several bug fixes and performance improvements as well as a new experimental feature: Flash Cards.
Study With Flash Cards
  • GoodNotes lets you create flash cards that you can study with the “Spaced Repetition” learning technique.
  • To create a flash card, add a new page using the “Flash Card” paper template
  • Flash card paper is currently only available in the size “GoodNotes Standard Size” and can be found in the Essentials template group all the way on the right side
  • Add the question on the top half and the answer on the bottom half. Tip: Use images, text, and handwriting to create great-looking and information-rich flash cards.
  • To study all flash cards in a document (“the flash card deck”), click on the ... menu and then on “Study Flash Cards”
  • click on the screen to reveal the answer and then choose how easy it was to remember the answer.
  • GoodNotes will suggest your next study date based on your learning progress and the selected difficulty of the cards. The more you study, the more accurate these suggestions will become. E.g.: You will see “hard” cards more often and sooner than “easy” cards.
  • You can reset your entire learning progress for the current deck in the settings in the flash card studying screen. Note that this is not reversible and the entire progress for this deck is lost as if you would have never studied it before.
Other fixes & improvements
  • added a dialogue for when there are incompatible sync versions installed that isn’t blocking you from using GoodNotes
  • Fixed crashes related to the new shape feature
  • Fixed the multi-selection gesture for the library and page
