Experimental Features In GoodNotes Explained

We’ve been talking to our developers at GoodNotes about their recent update, GoodNotes 5.6.2. They added flashcards to the app, but mentioned in their release notes that it was an experimental feature. It raised more questions than answers.

Here was their explanation and we quote:

From time to time we‘re making changes to GoodNotes, for which we first want to check how they are being adopted before deciding how to proceed with them. We mark them as experimental so that users are aware that they still may change drastically or even be removed again in case our assumptions aren’t met.

So let’s give our developers the feedback they need to make this feature permanent. Share your experiences. Do you like the feature? If you do, what do you like about it? What would you like to see added and how can they improve it. Perhaps you dislike it let them know why.

  1. 🙋🏻‍♂️.it’s an excellent feature. But during studying the flash cards,the cards are very small and the handwriting isn’t legible. So the cards, during studying, must have the same size during their making.
    Secondly, they must add sticky notes where we could write ✍️ our HANDWRITING commentary and then tap to minimize and maximize them. Super cool and useful feature in reading through large pdf textbooks.

    Thirdly, They must incorporate linking feature and pinch to collapse pages feature in big textbooks just like LiquidText as the latter main problem is memory management which fails it in dealing with large projects.


  2. It is a great feature! I hope they make it even better by introducing customisations so that it can eventually be a replacement for anki for handwritten note takers.
