    Hi everyone, I'll be getting an iPad as soon as my student loan check arrives, and I want to use it for my classes. Ideally, I want it to supplement as many traditional school supplies (notebooks, pens, possibly textbooks) as possible and document the experience as I go. I know there are several note taking apps available, as well as course planners and the like. I've already ordered a Dodocase and a dagi stylus to make the experience easier.

    I was wondering if anyone could recommend which apps I should get, or offer any advice I should keep in mind as I begin the experiment.

    For general studies I would use Note Taker HD, WritePad and Notebooks. I'm not a power user and I'm sure there will be others who will recommend their preferences. Good luck.

    Thanks for the advice, I've added the apps to my wishlist. As for Writepad, I love the thought of what I write being transcribed but I worry about how accurate the transcription is. I don't have the greatest handwriting on paper, and I wonder how well it will work on the iPad. Oh well, I suppose the best way to find out is to try it.

    Another one for Note taker HD as I write faster than I type.

    Hmmm, so far we have the application that is good enough for like handwriting on ipad. The main hurdle will be the stylus. I got a dagi, it's not exactly the one I thought it would be. And pogo doesn;t seem that good for handwriting from what i read online.
