    I am a bio major at UMD and am looking for a note taking app that does the following:

    1. Allow me to use a stylus to draw things like chemical structures etc.

    2. Record the class

    3. Allow me to play the recording of the class and see exactly where I was when the recording was taken

    4. Allow for multiple notebooks

    Does anyone know of apps that do these things? Please let me know! I am on the fence of buying an ipad and this would push me over.

    Have a look at Notes Plus...

    Stylus or keyboard - yes
    Shapes, drawing etc - yes
    Audio Recording - yes
    Multiple independent sets of notes - yes

    Have a look in the App Store and then go to the Developer's website where he has some videos showing the app in action.

    Good luck with your classes....

    Audio note does everything you ask for, including showing time in the recording the line was written/drawn. I bought it for exactly the same reason you did.

    Edit: only does time for typing, not drawing. You can overcome this by typing a period or something before you draw.

    Nothing beats Complete Class Organizer. It does everything. Look for it in the app store.

    I use idea sketch for just trying to organize notes.
    I use Evernote to share my notes between my iPad, iPhone, and Mac.

    I personally use notes plus. It allows you to type and write on the same page and you can make different books for different classes

    Does anyone know if there is note taking app where you can import an email or other document to edit in note taking? I have several apps that export but can't find one that imports. Thanks!

    The description in iTunes for Complete Class Organizer says it can import PDF's from emails and dropbox integration. Does anyone use this feature?
    I am looking for an app which can help me to organize projects and I want to store not only my notes but also external files (pdf,word,excel) in one app.
