    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!
