Oh cool so itís only display as square box and not in a list like in iOS notes and notability
Too bad the but square take up lot of space

Oh from spotlight not really supported unlike evenote and iOS notes and notability
Yep it will show you like mini thumbnails...those viewing photos in windows explorer.

can't search.. Thus if really need to search for some stuff, not so convenient... ;( guess I should have purchase notability instead... But for GoodNotes, I like it as it is view as pages, when set as A4, the whole page is A4 instead of endless scroll.

Notability is extremely useful if you are going for conference/meetings. Can do audio recording and playback which is time synchronized with your notes.

Sound good if does need audio rcording.

Just to check as I understand that notabilityís paper is those scroll endless type? Or is it able to set it will show a line when is at A4 size? Because I may print those notes out to A4 and donít like knows get chop off only when at printing.

Prefer OneNote...but however, i not going to vote for it, cos it lacks important table features (specfically merge and split cells), which many users has been requesting for.

Personally I'm using notability to import pdf and write notes on slides, and tutorials too.

Need advice from people who have actually used it.

I finally decided to switch from using traditional notebooks to ipad + Apple pencil .

Which combination works well?

I just want to jot down handwritten notes ., and preserve them in electronic format .

I am currently leaning towards the use of the iPad mini ( smallest size for maximum portability) + Apple Pencil .

Thanks for the recommendation!

In terms of hardware , is Apple Pencil 1 ok ?

Or should I go for the smaller IPad Pro with Pencil 2 ?

Apple Pencil 1 will work just fine.

With the Apple Pencil 2, the erasing part becomes more convienent, where you can double tap on it and it is in ‘eraser mode’ and double tap again, it reverts back to ‘Pencil mode’. Comes in handy when you need to quickly jot down notes, especially if the lecturer is going through the content in a fast pace.

Really depends on what you want. I tried OneNote as it can sync with my PC which has Office 2019 OneNote as well but the writing experience not as smooth compared with GoodNotes 5. Also annoying stuff like even drawing a line is damn difficult with OneNote.. gave up after a while.

Been using Goodnotes 5 extensively over the last week at a meeting. Found that it works very well... imported PDFs from the meeting pre-reads that I could easilly annotate and most of all I like that it's in pages, much like a real notebook. And yes, after spending over a thousand on an iPad, don't understand why some people hesitate so much over a $10 app to make full use of the functionality?

Here are the weaknesses (from my perspective) of each note taking software listed below, which I observe.

1) OneNote - Table functionalities wise- Cannot merge/split column and row.
2) Evernote - No format painter. Use tag for organization (i actually prefer folder-file kind of organization).
3) Excel - No multiple level of nesting. That is, it has multiple tabs (known as worksheet), which is good, but I hope to have tabs within a tab.

When looking for note taking software, i always look for
1) Table functionalities (esp merge/split column or row)
2) Format Painter
3) Cross platform (desktop, web, mobile support)
4) Multiple level of nesting (like onenote) or folder-file like structure

The one which I looking now is NIMBUS. It is currently missing point 1. but i heard in April, NIMBUS will be updated to include point 1.
