    Best writing iPad app? Well it depends on what kind of writing you gonna be doing. If it invokes putting in lots of pictures, graphs, etc...then I would probably go with Pages. The downside of pages is no dropbox integration and a little bit of lag when you type. I tried quick office and while it has the same features as pages it also has dropbox integration and superior file system organization. The downside of quick office is that it lags even more than Pages to the point that you have to wait for the text to show up after you type. NOW if you just a quick note taking app then I would go with Notability, it is cheap, very responsive, it can also add in pictures and allows you to draw simple diagrams and best of all it does not lag. Good luck with your search.
