Cincy, Glad you got your ipad 2! Yeah, syncing can get annoying. I had mentioned the YouVersion Bible, earlier, as a 'must have' for you. Another app which I just got yesterday, is NotesPlus. PHENOMINAL! I also have Penultimate and Noterize, and without a doubt, NotesPlus is my favorite, by a long shot! I would highly recommend it, if you need a good notetaking app. I love that you can do normal handwriting "up close", so the writing is small, yet you write larger (it shrinks it down as you write.) You can look at his videos on his site: NotesPlusApp.com Without a doubt, this has definitely been one of my best purchases!
