In the past few years, taking notes on your device has become a lot more prominent. Companies like Samsung are constantly making sure users have a way to take notes, and we have S Pen variants and specialized devices for that. However, the number of note taking apps is not as common on Android as it is on iOS. Well, that’s changing today as GoodNotes, regarded as one of the best note-taking apps, finally launches on Android, but with a catch.
GoodNotes for Android is finally available, but currently works as a Progressive Web App and has very limited availability
The company announced the GoodNotes beta on Android. However, at the time of writing it is only available for a limited number of devices, but the biggest caveat here is that you need a Samsung tablet with a screen larger than 8 inches and the device must have at least 3 gigabytes of RAM. This may seem like a very restrictive requirement, but given the nature of the app, it makes sense.
Thankfully, the app has mentioned in its official announcement post that more tablets will be added to the list. We hope that Samsung’s exclusivity is only timed and that GoodNotes actually comes to other Android tablets.
Unfortunately, a Reddit user reported that GoodNotes on Android is currently a Progressive Web App or PWA and even requires a constant internet connection. This may change in the future, but we are not sure.
Be that as it may, users interested in using GoodNotes on their device should be happy to know that you get full stylus support, lots of templates, dark mode, and much more. The app is free to use during the beta testing phase, but will introduce a paid tier once it finally comes out of beta.
Given that it is in beta and currently a PWA, GoodNotes users on Android cannot sync their notes cross-platform. There are some other limitations, such as the only 20 notebooks in the free version. If you want to sign up, it’s worth noting that the app only has 10,000 available seats. You can do this by going here, provided you have a supported Android tablet.
