    Hi All,
    I just got an iPad 2 and found this app to help me make the most of my new "toy"! It was a gift and I received the a leather smart cover (in cream) and a clear Belkin snap case to protect the back. It's still nice and compact. In my first few days I did a lot of research on note taking apps and ended up purchasing notes plus. I work in a corporate environment with tons of meetings, and I found that this app met my needs without a lot of the extra fluff, which in my opinion could make the user experience cumbersome. I then researched a stylus and ended up with the Wacom stylus... Love it! My next task is to find a printer app... Help! I have a older HP Laser jet , any suggestions?

    Looking forward to finding some good advice out here !
