    Hey everyone, I've been digging around a lot for iPad note taking apps, and while some of them have cool features and whatnot, I ironically am looking for a very simple feature that seems to be hard to come by.

    I'm a BIG fan of bolding stuff, indenting, using proper bullets. It's not sexy, but it keeps thought clumped together well.

    I know Pages does this, but is there a cheaper notetaking app that provides this kind of formatting? Most examples I've seen don't seem to have this very basic formatting.

    Have a look at Neils Notepad.

    Cheers,

    Try searching for outliner in the App Store. Should give a a few more options to investigate.

    Personally I'm interested in Circus Ponies Notebook, mostly because I love the OS X version. But it doesn't fit your criteria of cheaper than Pages, to put it mildly.

    Notability has the best outlining

    Use Notability when you want to take notes in an outline format. It supports simple indented lists, bullet lists and number lists.

    It's the best!

    Notability

    Notability will allow you to completely customize your text including color, size, bold/italics, style, highlighting, indentation, and bullets or numbering. It also will allow for inserting of images (pictures, web images, or hand drawn pictures such as graphs) with text wrapping around.

    In Notability you can sync and amplify audio recordings with your notes so it is easy to remember recall what was being said at the time of the note.

    You can also export as a pdf+recording or just as a pdf if you prefer with drop box integration.

    Coming soon the app will support iDISK and webDAV.
