    I just realized after reading another thread I could use my iPad to take notes with a stylus on my trip to Germany instead of lugging around a notebook.

    Here's the issue though - I'm left handed. I see that Penultimate is one of the top apps but I see comments saying that it's not good for left handed people even with the wrist rest update.

    Anyone here make a suggestion?

    External/bluetooth keyboard out of the question? Personally I type a hell of a lot faster than I write.....(on a regular keyboard that is!)

    Yeah it doesn't work in Persian Farsi. The iPad has native support for Persian Farsi in the browser, but oddly enough, not on the keyboard.

    I just downloaded Penultimate...going to try that one. Evernote has like a monthly fee or something associated with it, something that wouldn't be worth it to me because I don't need to take notes often.

    شماه از ایران هستید؟

    Seems to work pretty well and I want to buy a stylus on eBay but my friggin' credit card # was stolen and someone charged 17k worth of crap on it (rescinded by the company of course) and my new one is taking like two weeks to re-add to my account.

    I've heard Penultimate is the best stylus note taking app. I already bought it and am waiting for my boxwave stylus to arrive.
