    I checked out live notes but don't seem to like it any other suggestions? I just need to take notes and record lectures up to 2 and half hours.

    Audio note is my favorite. Let's you record, type and draw then email to yourself the notes and separate audio file.

    I have notes plus, I haven't delved into it entirely but it has note taking with keyboard and stylus or finger and recording. There are some great reviews of it, just google it.

    I would love an audio tool that records voice but also converts the voice to text at the same time !

    Have you tried dragon dictation, I haven't played with it much myself, but it does type up anything you say.. You will need to edit it a bit, but that's better than typing the lot. And it's free

    Dragon is good, but in lecture situations and more than one voice or loud noises only about 70% accuracy. There is an app out there that I've seen that links your recording to your notes. Been so long I can't remember what it was. You just had to tap your note to make the recording play at that point. But that's what I do In my real live everyday work....I'm a court reporter. Voice recognition is getting there...just not yet with reliability. You need quiet and one voice that had been "trained" to recognize the sound. There is another source doing the take notes with the audio and tap on the notes to play it, but that's a special pen with special paper to activate it.

    I think the app your thinking of is Notes Plus, well at least this app does record audio while making notes, and for playback you can tap a note you made and the audio will begin at that point. There's some great reviews on it. Just google it

    I've been using Notability for some time now. I believe the limit for recording is based on your memory limit.

    You will not be disappointed.

    Very impressive. Your handwriting is very good by the way, I didn't realize that you could keep it quite normal size too. Thanks for that

    No worries. There's a zoom feature in the app that allows you to keep your handwriting to a normal size...I thought it would be difficult to use but as you can tell I've learnt really quick and find it very easy now. I'm well impressed with it.

    Would be good if I could highlight.....not sure yet if I can, haven't found a feature yet but gonna do a search and see.

    :)
