    Of course Pages can do both those things.

    I would go with evernote. It's highly unlikely you would exceed your monthly free allowance unless you are note taking 24/7.
    The multiple tag system makes searching easy while the frequent syncing means your work is never lost and accessible from any machine or web browser.
    I've been using it for several years now ( mac, pc) and it's proved very reliable with regular updates. As it's free it's a no brainer.
    Take a look at their website for a run down of it's features.

    Because it was free I downloaded Evernote. Am I kissing something because it was awful!

    I deleted it straight away and downloaded Notability. It was amazing.

    How do you even add webclips from Safari in Evernote??

    Good choice. Notability is excellent.

    Is Evernote rubbish or did I just not click with it??

    Have never deleted an App faster in my life.

    Evernote is most certainly not garbage. The free version works just as good as the full version. Before you spend the money on whatever they are telling you to buy, try Evernote for at least a week. If you like it, as I am almost certain you will, you can purchase the premium subscription. If you don't like it, go try something else.

    You should have given it more time. It would be like me calling Zelda the worst game ever made because I lost the first time I tried. You have to give things time.

    I started out with a clear list of essentials, and Evernote couldn't elegantly do one or two of those essentials.

    I couldn't easily take a clip from the web and insert it freely anywhere on the page.

    And custom formatting on the note pages wasn't to my liking at all. I very much like the way that the bullets and carriage returns work in Notability.

    99c very well spent and glad I did spend it even though I hardly spend any money on the App store, usually settling for free alternatives.

    I'm not suggesting that Evernote doesn't have its uses but I'm asking if it just isn't the right App for my intended usage as per post #1 because I certainly didn't get the right vibe from the App.

    Despite all persnicketiness, glad to see the support for Evernote, which has become my goto. Give it like a day or a week before you get safari iOS web clipping and other bells and whistles. Invest now in the foundation of this literal accessory brain. This is an app built to last.

    For the record, you can Record notes (audio, video, typed, images, etc etc) whenever in the free version, online or off (preferably off and outside!)

    So are you confirming that Evernote doesn't let me web clip from Mobile Safari into a note?

    It is so easy to copy and and paste something from the web, resize an image, etc. all without leaving Notability that 99c was a great spend to be honest. And I really like the lovely easy on the eye fonts.
