GoodNotes v5 Released



Is anyone else noticing massive battery life drain with goodnotes versus notability? GN is zapping my iPad in about 3 hours from a full charge.


I spent a lot of time using GoodNotes at a conference last week and I while I was down below 20% by the end of the day, I was still getting all-day battery life out of my iPad (2018 12.9” iPad Pro).


I’ve noticed this a bit – it seems that the Pencil discharges faster with GoodNotes.


GoodNotes 5 for macOS beta has begun – it’s very basic – no editing yet – but good to see there is progress.

The roadmap for GoodNotes 5 for macOS final release 1.0 brings it up to par with GoodNotes 4, for the most part.


Why on earth would the iOS version be 331 MB? Is this all fancy notebook covers and templates?
