In this respect, in the Notability notes application compared to Goodnotes 6, the page selection function is a bit more complicated, so I'll choose Goodnotes 6's side here.


P.S. Recently Goodnotes 6, delighted everyone who dreamed of a version for Windows and Android.
It used to be very difficult to use digital planners on Windows tablets such as Microsoft Surface, because there were no comfortable applications for handwritten notes on Microsoft Surface, but now there is Goodnotes. I would like to compare how you can delete a page in GoodNotes for windows or for android tablet  but I will wait for feedback from my users of digital planners for ipads, for windows and for android devices.

Guys I will be grateful for your feedback on the usability of Goodnotes on all devices for handwritten notes with a stylus :-)
