While I am saving up to treat myself an iPad for Xmas, I figure it would help to review apps to make a list of what apps I would like to download so when the time comes, just download what apps I have on my "shopping list of apps to download", I spent a lot of time narrowing down similar apps. There are three apps I am interested in and would like other member's suggestions and advice on my ideas. The apps are smartNote (Christoper Thibault and Brendan Lee) Penultimate (Cocoa Box Design LLC) iBrainstorm (Universal Mmmind) I am looking for an app that could allow me to make notes, sketches, and so on, if possibile, with a number of books, and I found out that my best bet would have to be smartNote over that of Penltimate, but although smartNote seems bit complex, Penultimate is much simipler (ever if somewhat less interesting). Do anyone think it is a good idea or would advise against the idea of downloading both smartNote and Penltimate? I thought maybe use smartNote for something really complex and serious work, with so much details, but use Penltimate for very simple notes and sketch only? Maybe use Penultimate for sketch only? I found iBrainstorm interesting becuase you could write notes and sketech whatever you like, very much similar to Penultimate, but the extra interesting thing is that you can have Post-It sticky notes on top of your drawings in iBrainstorm, so wonder if smartNote have something similar? I mean, to write or type notes or draw sketches in smartNotes, but do it have anything like sticking a Post-It note on top of the pages? Many thanks for any input and advice.
