    I have read through this forum and watched many you tube videos in research for a note taking app for the ipad, but no one seems to meet my need, but maybe I'm missing something. Here is what I need:

    - take BOTH typing (with keyboard) and handwriting notes (primarily I will be typing, but I need the option of handwriting as well)
    - being abnle to draw, chose colors and styles
    - export to either word, one note, pdf or something that can be edited at my pc, and read by others.
    - search function is essential - this is something I haven't been able to find yet...


    Hope you can forgive me for yet another thread about this...
    :)

    But penultimate doesn't seem to be good for typing with a keyboard?

    Notes Plus supports both handwriting and typed input. If you go to the App Store and then follow the link to the Developer's web site, you'll see there are some good videos there showing its capabilities.

    With its most recent updates, Note Taker HD now supports typing notes. Plus, you can modify PDFs and then e-mail (or transfer, via iTunes) your documents.

    I am unsure what you mean by search, unless it's to search for words created in the note app (or already exist because that's how you imported the file). If that's the case, I don't think any note taking app does search - you'll have to get something like GoodReader, which will let you search. Oh, and GoodReader will let you take/write notes on top of existing files ... as long as they are PDFs.

    In other words, I don't think one app has all the characteristics you want. I could be wrong, though, so someone may come and correct me.

    Good luck on your search.

    By "search" I mean search for words, sentences etc... I know that will not be possible with the handwritten parts, but just the typed ones.

    @Tim - notesplus looks great, and it seems like they are working on a search function as well

    thanks for your replies :)

    My brother Just sent me an email using Note Taker HD. I'm no expert, but he said it was one of his favorite apps period. Thats saying a lot IMO.

    Note taker hd is good but could do with a little more polish, if some of the usability features from upad were copied, it would be great.
