    Forum users,

    I'm currently an Engineering student and I've been wanting a digital alternative to taking notes by hand. I'm a huge Apple supporter, so ideally, I'd like to do so with an Ipad. I have very specific needs, so I thought I'd ask some current Ipad users.

    I need a single app that can do the following:

    • read .pdf/.doc/etc
    • edit(both drawing and text) .pdf/.doc/etc (or add stickys with both text and drawing)
    • create .pdf(or .doc) files with both text and drawing
    • insert graphs/tables/etc
    • audio recording
    • maybe some sort of smoothening feature for the drawing aspects

    Also, how does the Ipad work with a stylus?

    Any help is greatly appreciated,

    Thank you.

    Ok I too have under taken a similar search. But I have yet to find a combination of all of this. For typed notes and multimedia, I use Notability. For handwriting, I love Noteshelf. Both of these also have great organizational aspects to them. Noteshelf also works great with a stylus. For PDF's (and awesome file management) you've got to get Good Reader. Hope this helps!

    Check out Notability

    Notability should cover your text and audio needs. It also all for uploading of pictures and web images plus you can create your own charts with free had drawings. Hope this help.
