    I am a 28 year old male, currently writing a psychological thriller titled, Color Me Crazy. I use scrivener and also toy with Final Draft as I want to write a screenplay next. I purchased the iPad for brainstorming and jotting down plot ideas, character descriptions, etc. as well as for demonstration purposes in my primary job - sales. I purchased Notebooks for iPad after reading some really strong things about it. However, I am not able to figure out how to use the stylus that I purchased. It worked in sketch mode, but I was under the impression you can write with the stylus on the notes section as well. Could someone guide me?

    Thanks,

    Jeremy - Excited, but kind of frustrated iPad owner

    The Circus Ponies Notebook app? Love the OS X version. However the iPad version is getting terrible reviews on iTunes. I've been waiting to see where it goes. Since I don't really need it $30 is too much to spend unless it is going to blow away all my other note taking options. Which it would do if it got DropBox (coming they say), syncs with my computer version (better than through iTunes), and works reliably.

    So, sorry, I don't know. But you should look for a help feature, maybe hidden in the info icon. You can also go to their site at Circus Ponies NoteBook - Award-Winning Mac and iPad Application - Organization for a Creative Mind and check out their forums. I did look at the product page, but there was not enough detail to figure out how do do what you want.

    In the mean time, I have one good piece of news for you. Evidently there is supposed to be an iPad version of Final Draft coming out soon. No date. It was just an article saying they were going to do it, soon. Probably their idea of soon, which might not be yours.

    I believe there is another writer or two hanging out on the board. Hopefully they can give you some more useful tips.
