The following styluses are supported in GoodNotes 5:
- Apple Pencil 1st generation
- Apple Pencil 2nd generation
- Logitech Crayon
- All non-Bluetooth captive styluses
Why GoodNotes 5 doesn't support other stylus models
For GoodNotes 5, we first wanted to focus our resources on creating the best possible experience for first-party technology.
GoodNotes 4 will support third-party styluses. If you bought GoodNotes 5 already, and can't or don't want to switch to one of the supported styluses, we recommend requesting a refund from Apple.
We may add support for third-party stylus technology in the future but don't have a timeframe for it yet, as we are currently investigating the technical challenges and the effort.
