    It doesn't compose complex noten in one note together like goodnotes. It is very far from similar.

    Only simple text notes, no pdf import, export, bad pen support, etc. This is not an alternative to Goodnotes

    Google Keep is made to take simple notes, while GoodNotes is made to write virtual notebook full of notes, as one would do in class.

    I like things simple and easy instead of a lot of icons and options to select froms. I like the simple way of taking notes. What I would like is it would be nice to be able to draw forms and combine them that automatically recognize and correct the forms. I have been using mostly some rectangles line and square, but when you want to move or make big, it is complicated to shore one piece as it does select the other instead of the one you want. Overall it is good but still need some improvements.
