    This is a major problem with NoteTaker. Would love to export my notes to Evernote for tagging and organising.
    Have emailed the dev. If enough of us do we may get lucky as he does update regularly.

    Great thread. As a former university teacher, current secondary teacher, I am very interested in how students and teachers are using the iPad. I am also an app geek & love hearing about new apps. I noticed that Noterize has not been mentioned - this is a PDF driven app that enables you to do full annotations but also to add note pages and/or remove just a few pages from a large PDF to create a new file ... Has a nice UI & well worth checking out. I have a lot of note-taking apps both free & paid - 3 full folders actually & am still looking for the perfect one although there are so e really great ones around. If you do a search for " best note taking apps iPad" on Google, there are a few good reviews around but Soundnote & equivalent which let you type, write & have audio that recognizes what notes correspond to which part of the recording are amazing - there are a couple of free ones - Audio memos & audio note lite - these will give you a chance to see if this is something you will find useful. Don't be concerned about memory either - audio is amazingly small with these apps - about 24mg for an hour of lecture. I can also highly recommend Readlle Docs ($5.99) for document/ folder management - it also works as a PDF reader/annotator, is Dropbox friendly etc. Then you can organize ALL of your files & it also works well with Noterize (amongst others). Keep posting about your findings - would love to hear how you go & what turns out to be useful for your needs. ... Good luck with your semester.

    iStudiezPro is another good App for keeping track of the schedule and assignments. It is superior to the Calendar, as it allows to schedule exactly during which weeks a certain class is held. You can just say psychology class is every monday 10-10.50 from the 2.2 to 25.7. Great way of keeping track of the schedule. It also imports the already existent data from thecalendar app, so that you can see any overlap immediately.

    An iPad is really helpful for students. They can takes notes in Ipad. I have a son who is currently studying and he keeps on borrowing my iPad to do research. I am nowadays preparation to purchase a new Ipad.

    I typically don't like to type notes. I've finished my undergraduate and master's, both with highest honors. I'm starting law school in the fall. I think I know student life ok. :D

    That having been said...

    Who is using penultimate or other note taking programs on the iPad? Even with a stylus, I can write any sharper or more defined than if I was using a crayon...:confused:

    I'm assuming you mean typed notes. I *could* write an essay on here, but by the time it's finished draft one, i'd shuffle it over to MS word, in order to fix footnotes, margins, and all the other obligatory hooey.

    It's a great tool. I can use it for rough drafts. I can read PDFs on it, and even highlight and annotate them. But I don't believe for a second that it's a substitute for pen and paper; just an invaluable counterpart! :)

    try note taker hd. i use it all the time in school. you can write as small and as sharp as needed.

    instead of a stylus i just hold a pen flipped on its end. then recess the tip a bit in my grip and use my finger. the pen acts as a guide and i find it quickens hand taken notes.

    Good call on note taker. That's a much nicer program than Penultimate. But for my money, I still prefer pen and paper. Will DEFINITELY use this app to annotate PDFs, though! :)

    I'm a student too, the iPad and Good Reader have completely changed the way I study.

    I used to have to print hundreds of pages of research journals, lecture notes etc. every semester... recently I haven't used my printer in months :)

    That's definitely a good use for it! IMO, though, I would rather use my e-reader if my readings are sufficiently long. No annotation, but it's easier on the eyes!

    Haha, agreed. I'm entering my junior year and you wouldn't believe how great the ipad is until you use it in school. Definitely helps whenever you have a boring lecture, lol.

    Why is the e-reader easier on the eyes?

    No backlight. I find that after more than two hours or so straight viewing, any computer screen/monitor starts to strain my eyes. Like this exact moment, for example, lol.

    With the e-reader's "e-ink," there is no such backlight, or comparative screen. It is much closer to actual paper!
