What is a digital notebook?
A digital notebook is just like a real notebook. It’s a notebook that is designed to be used with a planner app. It comes with an interactive PDF document that gets imported into the planning program.
Or, if you use the Goodnotes planning application, you can also get the free Goodnotes file as well. It is ready to open and use directly in your app.
What is the purpose of interactive notebooks?
Digital notebooks allow you to take notes just like when pen and paper. But, there is one major advantage. You can search your handwritten notes in a digital notebook. It makes finding your past notes so much easier.
Plus, if you don’t like your handwriting, you can type your notes instead. You don’t even need a keyboard to be able to type in your notes.
Can I use the notebook for something other than notetaking?
Yes! It comes with a blank page option so that you can use it any way you’d like. You can paste in your own templates that are PNGs directly onto the pages or draw your own spreads.
You can use it as a journal, a planner, a sticker book, a digital scrapbook, a digital recipe book, or anything else you’d like to use it for. Honestly, the options are endless.
Does the notebook have sections?
Yes! This free notebook comes with 12 different sections. There is a tab for each section and an index page to fill in a title for each section.
Sections are another reason I love digital notebooks. I can separate my notes by topic – house, work, kids, etc. If you are a student in school, the 12 sections make it easy to separate your notes by course.
Is the notebook landscape or portrait?
The notebook is set up as a landscape 2 page notebook. The pages are facing each other like a real open notebook. I do not have a single page option available in this set.
The right side and left side are the same and mirror each other like a real journal.
What are the contents of the free digital notebook?
- 12 tabbed and hyperlinked sections
- 9 different styles of page templates
- 1 index page (like a table of contents) where you can write down the name of each notebook section
- 1 template page including the color palette and fonts used in the notebook
- cover page
- owner page
- back cover page
Here are some of what the individual pages of the notebook look like.
What is included to download for free in this set?
- 2 Interactive PDFs
- 1 is the standard with all blank pages (except for the templates)
- 1 has all lined pages (but still includes the templates)
- Access to a free Google Drive folder with 8 PNG images of the page templates if you prefer to paste PNGs
What paper types are included in the templates?
You’ll get multiple types of digital paper options. This includes:
- wide ruled lined
- notebook paper
- dot grid
- 2 column lined
- 3 column lined
- to do list
This is what each template looks like.
What type of device can the free notebook be used with?
You can use it with any device that has digital planning apps on it. This includes any mobile device like an iPad, Android tablets, iPhone, Android phone, etc.
The Best Apps for Digital Planning
There are so many options for digital planning. And I don’t mean Google Calendar (although I use it for everything, too).
Digital planning applications are programs that allow you to plan digitally just like you are using a real planner or notebook. You don’t use physical products at all, it’s all through the program on your tablet or iPad. They use a digital planner in pdf format and become interactive when imported.
Here are the ones that I have researched and think are the best options:
What I use for Digital Planning
My personal favorite digital planning app is Goodnotes. It’s the program I use with my own digital planner and digital notebooks. I use an iPad Pro with an Apple pencil.
Are there any digital stickers included?
No, there are no digital stickers included in this set. But there are free digital stickers available here on Mom Envy.
