    I have Penultimate and Note Taker HD. A combination of the two would be ideal. Penultimate with a zoom feature or Note Taker HD with the smoothness of Penultimate. What I mean by smoothness is that in Note Taker HD my handwriting looks like I wrote it after drinking 10 coffees. Penultimate must have some algorithm that smoothes out the lines.

    A few of my friends have used it and say HelvetiNote is a nice note taking app!

    Five apps reviewed

    SoundPaper - now called SoundNote - has one great feature for journalists or others who take notes in meetings or interviews. It time codes your written notes to the recording, so all you have to do is click on a point in your notes and it will automatically go to that point in the recording.

    As a journalist this would be invaluable. I don't think overall SoundNote has the best note taking feature set, but this one aspect makes it a great app for a certain purpose.

    I made an app called "Side by Side". Although it is not a specific note taking app, but it allows you to write some text notes while keeping one or more other windows (e.g. web browser, PDF reader) open side by side.

    It has some special features like: one tap to copy today's date; two taps to create a new note from clipboard; edit up to 4 text notes at the same time; resize the note panel.

    WOW! Great find! I'm not thinking just journalist or students, but I'm a technology sales reps, and frequently meet with clients and take meeting notes. Today I use Livescribe pen...I hate that it is an entirely different system, and one more thing to carry, when I want to consolidate. I am demoing this now (just dloaded it), and so far, so good! Not as robust as Livescribe, but if I can consolidate it to my iPad and ditch the pen...I'm a happy camper. Thanks for the great find!!!:D

    Evernote vs. the rest of the field

    I think of Evernote as more of a note management system - something it does terrificially. I was using Yojimbo, but Evernote has better integration across all platforms so my notes are always with me - even on my iPad or iPhone. Still, I don't see it as a note taking tool. SmartNote comes closest to OneNote, but still have to say there is nothing in the iPad or Mac space that rivals OneNote yet. I hate to say that!

    I prefer typing my notes. Does anyone know of a note taking app that would allow me to type in chemistry equations? I have tried a bunch of different apps, but none seem to have the ability to insert an equation or the symbols (subscripts, exponents, and charges) into my notes. So far I like sundry notes the best out of the apps I have tried, but it is still far from what I want. If anyone has any ideas, I would really appreciate it.

    EverNote vs. OneNote

    I have been using Evernote, but now see where the new Windows 7 Phone is going to utilized OneNote.... I am torn. I really hate to have to switch and start all over again... anyone else have a thought on this?

    Have you tried WhiteNote?

    I have it, can't say I'm using it that often, but in terms of features it's a very good on.

    Check it out: WhiteNote.
