    Hi everyone I recently started using my iPad to take notes on during lecture. I am currently using iannotate and it's pretty good for almost everything I want to do. Since all my lecture notes are PDFs online they are very easy to incorporate into the app and to work with. There is one thing I wish I could do that I have not found any way to accomplish yet. Does anyone know of a way to run a video player on half the screen, so I could play back my lectures, and keep iannotate (or any other note taking app) on the other half. Ultimately what I wish to do is to go back and fill in any information I may have missed in class.

    Yep, Note Taker HD does do it all!

    And a lot more! A LOT more!

    I've just recently bought it and am very impressed.

    Two things:
    A very steep learning curve because it is so powerful.
    and
    I'd like to see better EverNote integration.

    How does the stylus work? Does it plug into the pad? I am a sales rep and would like to be able to write orders on it.

    On another note, how do you turn off the darn auto spell?

    Thanks for the link, maybe next time they will give us their impression of the Alupen. Let us know how the Jot Pro works out for you.

    Hey peeps. This is my first real post to this site, so I hope I am posting in the correct place.

    I really just want a basic note taking app for meeting notes. I am an R&D Engineer and I am constantly in meetings taking notes. I need to be able to take quick notes on the fly about multiple subjects. The things I am really looking for are the following:

    1- Don't need handwriting. I prefer to use my bluetooth keyboard in meetings.
    2- Need to have good organization for notes. I really like the basic search function in the Note app that Apple provides with the iPad for it's search function.
    3- I want to have basic formatting for my notes such as Bold, Underline, Numbering, etc...
    4- PDF and email functionality

    I think the perfect app would be the Notes App that comes with the iPad if only it included basic functionality such as formatting, indenting, and numbering.

    Has anyone come across something like this?

    For reference, I tried an app called "NoteKata" that came pretty close, but you couldn't do a search for notes. They were put into "folders," but you couldn't search for specific dates or note titles. Also, you can only select a few text sizes.

    I also tried "trunk notes." It was pretty cool for it's search functionality, but I got tired taking notes in Markdown syntax because bullets and numbering has issues. It was also pretty cool that it supported basic tables, but it always was hard to format them properly.

    I guess I am just torn because I really don't need anything really fancy, but the basic note taking apps just don't quite cut it. I would appreciate any comments.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Hi! So awhile ago I downloaded a really cool note taking app for free, and it let me look at other users shared notes. And it had examples of notes you can do and one was music to buy. I am fairly certain it was on my ipad but it could have been on the phone. The problem is it somehow got deleted and I cannot remember the name. I have looked through sooo many apps on the store. Does any one have any clue what this app is?????

    Note taking with pictures

    Hi

    We take lots of notes when checking tenants out of flats and One Note seems to work pretty well and syncs well with the PC but often with a lot of pictures the APP slows down a lot.

    Did anyone find the best solution?
