I agree - at the moment it is a constant tradeoff - I am jumping between a handful of apps & none of them are 'exactly' what I am looking for. For me it comes down to UI, file management & graphics capabilities. I need something I can 'throw' everything into, resize, type over, highlight, annotate and handwrite on. The apps that do this have clunky UI's & questionable file management. One of the reasons I was also looking forward to CP Notebook is that it offers PDF embedding - this is also on the wish list as I use a lot of PDFs & have to use yer another app to deal with those. We are a long way from having options like are offered on our lap/desktops by the look of things & as threads such as this testify to. I am happy to keep looking & supporting developers with purchases - apps are very cheap right? But, for the record, I would HAPPILY pay $37.99 for an app that met all of my needs - it would be a steal to have something that really allowed me to use the iPad as a true productivity device. At the moment I am Leapfrogging around & productive isn't the word that springs to mind.
