Some important things to note: The app is only available for Apple devices such as iPhones, iPads, and Macs (you only need to purchase one time for the app to apply universally to all Apple devices).


Also, GoodNotes now offers three FREE notebooks, which is awesome! I purchased my GoodNotes app for $10 about a year ago.


If you have an Android device, don’t worry, you can still use our digital products. I’ll show you how HERE.

Inserting Your Digital Sticker of Your Pet

With your sticker book imported, you can now insert the digital sticker of your pet with the “image” tool.

When you downloaded your digital sticker of your pet to your device, it saved to either your files/photos. If it’s saved in your photos, you should be able to find it in your camera roll when you click the “image” tool. Tap the pencil icon if you aren’t seeing the tools and scroll all the way to the left to see more tool options appear.
