Goodnotes 6, available exclusively for Apple platforms, also includes features like pen gestures, including scribble and erase, customizable templates and folders, and a new in-app marketplace of digital stationery. Soon, Goodnotes will add new features as well, including one that will allow users to retrieve answers to contextual questions from their notes.
While taking notes in Goodnotes 6, you can automatically correct typos in your own handwriting. AI-powered Spellcheck instantly corrects handwritten typos in your own handwriting. There’s also interactive exam prep materials for SAT and other standardized tests, with built-in hints and AI Math Assistance to identify errors. Users will also be able to enjoy a new in-app marketplace for digital stationery like stickers, planners, covers, and more.
There are also customizable folders and dynamic templates that allow user to customize the size and color of the digital paper in their notebooks; and new pen gestures like Scribble to Erase and Circle to Lasso.
“Our team has been enormously excited to reimagine the way people interact with information and bring true innovation to the digital note-taking experience,” says Steven Chan, Founder and CEO of Goodnotes. “We’re thrilled to finally put Goodnotes 6 in the hands of our users, who we hope will feel the magic of a smarter and more delightful Goodnotes with our new user interface and our industry-first AI handwriting features.”
