    Can anyone recommend a better note taking app for school better than the notes app that comes on the iPad? I am looking for something that lets you type notes, not draw them, and has an organized saving system. Thanks!

    Notes Plus looks pretty nice to me. I think I'll be buying this one before next week. It lets you type anywhere, as well as draw directly on the same page (if you want to draw diagrams, arrows, etc). You can also select text you've already written and move it around the page, change fonts, use highlighters, all kinds of stuff. I recommend looking up some YouTube videos to see what you like.

    inClass is what you need. Note-taking app designed for students. And it's free.

    I use Notes Plus works great. I like the ability to either write or type my notes.

    personally I use Pages and when I get home or get time I just pull the notes I wrote during a day or week and put them into DropBox. I use DropBox as a file system on my ipad, I have literally everything in it: Pictures, Music, Documents, Syllabi, xCode Projects and more. The only limitation of the iPad (as far as affects my usage, anyway) is the 'sandbox' architecture makes it difficult to set up an organized structure, and the current iteration of Pages of iOS doesn't work with DropBox (maybe it will one day?). So DropBox helps me mirror the directory structure on my laptop onto my iPad.

    There are at least 4 threads that have lots of opinions, many comments of why people like them, problems that people have. Getting a good note taking app is important, so I would do a search, or look back a number of pages to find these threads. I think you will find them helpful. That being said, I would up with a number of them, and am finding no one app is good for everything.
