    "February Special" is what they call it, only $ 0.99.
    I'd say grab it HERE while you can ;)

    How does GoodNotes compare with Notability? What format does it save notes in and can the notes be exported and edited in other apps?
    Also, I am looking for OCR functionality... but some year-old reviews say it's not that good.. any updates on this in recent version?

    I got an email alert for it and just grabbed it up. Saved $7! :)

    I'd say both are pretty good apps. They've been compared here before.
    Because of GoodNotes' iCloud sync problems, I recently decided to give Notability another go. Only to return to GoodNotes, but probably a matter of taste.
    A few strictly personal considerations:

    Notability
    + Nice filing system (lists instead of notebooks)
    + Vertical scrolling
    + Good palm rejection (I don't have iPad Pro / Pencil)
    - limited (and ugly) colour palette
    - limited (and ugly) paper templates
    - zoombox has about x3 zoom factor, too big (feels like drawing shapes instead of writing)

    GoodNotes
    + unlimited colours
    + unlimited paper templates (I share a lot myself on my YouTube chanel ;-)
    + zoombox factor of x 1,5 allows for natural writing, and very natural progress of the zoombox
    + nice interface, stylish tool icons
    - iCloud synchronisation unreliable (for many users)
    - somewhat outdated notebooks classification

    The GoodNotes OCR keeps surprising me, it works extremily well for me.
