I’m using my iPad, which app do you recommend for the Digital Doodle Planner? Do I have to pay for GoodNotes in order to use the Digital Doodle Planner?

Does the Digital Doodle Planner allow cloud syncing?
As long as the app you are using has cloud syncing capabilities, the Digital Doodle Planner can sync across multiple devices!
The files won't download to my device. What should I do?
Please disable any VPN or antivirus software you have running, as this can often interfere with downloads, and then restart your device. Please also try downloading the files with a different browser. If possible, download the files to a computer then transfer them to your device.
There are spelling errors on the January and May cover pages. Can these be fixed?
Yes! Look for the folder called “Corrections” in your download files. 2 PNG stickers are inside that you can place on top to correct the spelling issues. These can be resized to fit and coloured over just like any other sticker!
The front covers are importing very small. How do I import them to be the same size as the rest of the planner?
We’ve sent out an update email with cover files that will import as the right size. Please click the download link to get the new files!
Some weekly spreads are missing days at the end of the month. Where can I find them
As in our physical planner, the weeks at the end of one month that transition to the next month are sorted by the month that has the majority of the days in that week. In example, the 30th and 31st of October are in the first weekly spread in November!
The planner pages are taking awhile to load. What can I do to reduce lagginess?
Please make sure that both your device and app are up to date and running the latest version. The planner PDF is a relatively large file so please ensure that your device has enough memory available and close any memory-intensive programs in the background while using it. Individual pages with many added stickers and images may take longer to load, so test to see what is the optimal amount per page for your device in order to minimize lag as much as possible. If the app you are using allows cloud syncing, please wait for your Digital Doodle Planner to complete syncing before using it (this should only be an issue if you are opening it on a different device from when you were last using your planner).
