If you have any issues with the downloading process, I can email the files directly to you instead. If you would like for me to do that, contact me at Please include your order number. 

Your digital planner with work with any PDF annotation app, but it may work differently than intended depending on the app. The most commonly used digital planning app is Goodnotes. It is also the one I personally recommend. Some other options include: 

  • Notability
  • Noteshelf
  • Xodo (Android)
  • Preview (Mac IOS)
