    I am in medical school as well! May I ask what your focus is, and what you'll work with after graduating? :) I bought an app called “iAnnotade PDF“ which does cost a few bucks, but is THE best app for the exact thing you are asking for. I use this app every day in class for taking notes, highlining, underlining, and striking out unnecessary parts of the current lecture. I must say it is an AWESOME experience using iAnnotate PDF!

    It even has a built in web browser which you can use to download pdf files directly from the internet! In my case, our university has all the current and up to date pdf files which are used in class, available on the internet. I simply use the built in web browser to download them all to the iAnnotate PDF app, and then I'm all set!

    Check it out and tell me what you think about it! :)

    Try closing the app completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly. Let us know how you go and if that has fixed it.

    Hi,
    Can you annotate PDF files and save them and then send them to anyone else? How much is this iAnnotate PDF app for? Is it being used extensively by your peers or just you? Any other major function or just annotation?

    Thanks

    I tried out several note-taking apps, and decided that Daedalus was the best for me. It has the cleanest, simplest interface, and because of that it performs fast. Very few buttons and features -- very elegant.

    Well, Goodreader isn't a note taking app, though it is good for annotating pdf's. Try Note Taker HD!

    Hello! I hope I can get help from you guys with the problem I'm currently facing. Today I recently purchased my new iPad. I'm going to use for school(currently in college) and would like to know which note taking app would suit me best. I'm in a middle of a dilemma. I have a couple of classes that uses PowerPoint presentation and the PowerPoint are available for us students to download and some classes that doesn't. Is there an app available that can both do the following things:
    1. Download and use the powerpoints and maybe highlight, cross out info that are not needed and add important notes on the powerpoints at the same time using a stylus.
    2. Use the app in my math class(calculus) where I can have a blank page to copy and solve math problems using a stylus.

    What are your toughts on penultimate and notability?

    Do any of you know if either has the ability to do single page custom paper? Say having p.1 a blank paper and then p.2 lined paper?

    Please help and thanks!
