    I'm coming from the Tablet PC world. One of the things I loved about my tablet was One Note and other apps that let you take notes and add hand drawn diagrams and handwriting to the same document all on the same page together. Has anyone made an app for he iPad that does something like this?

    I've been looking, but havent found one yet. I found one that lets you sync with a one note notebook on another computer, but I'm not sure if it allows to create that kind of mixed content directly on the iPad.

    There is a free app called PaperDesk lite for iPad - it appears in the Top 46 best free apps for iPad on my website, check it out! :)

    There is also "Penultimate" - one of the most popular apps, according to the Appstore.

    I recommend also Sundry Notes Pro.

    It also lets you embed sound recordings of lectures right on the page that you are taking notes on.



    Oh . . . and it is free.

    Silly question from a-yet-to-get-my-hands-on-my-Pad newbie.

    In these drawing programs do you use a stylus or just your finger or...?

    Thanks.

    will it ever arrive?

    you can use your fingers to "draw & write" however some apps allow u to type on the virtual keyboard or bluetooth keyboard :D

    Penultimate - don't seems to be able to type words but can have nice drawing like strokes that simulate pen

    PaperDesk, Note Taker HD I have too...

    Any other freeware apps that mimic a paper notebook?

    I wish the appstore would allow you to filter your searches by price range.

    AH...I want to use it when I am working with clients & need to draw an idea out. Hard to believe a big finger can do that....
    Thanks.

    I wish the Sundry Notes wasn't so UGLY and had more brush options.

    I use some art apps, but want the same features with formatted Text input

    This I did on AutoDesk Sketchbook

    I use Mental Note, which I think is $2.99. You can draw or type notes or record audio notes and you can mix all of the types on one page.

    I downloaded pentultimte also
    I did a lot of research for this and Its okay but the writing is so big with my finger. I ordered a stylus and hope that makes it better.

    There's another one I can't remember the name where you write and it turns to text. I wish I would have purchased this one. If you do a google search there is an article written about several of these apps and they have all names and prices in the article.

    Frankly most of them are so cheap it's easier to buy a few and try them out.
    Agree with NumbLock though. No excuse for an ugly app :)

    If you are using OneNote, then you want to look at MobileNoter.

    You may want to look at smartNote. There is also a free version of smartNote so that you can try it out before purchasing the full version.
