live Notes is what you want i think u can upload to dropbox. u can also bookmark the audio on your note pages so u can easily find lecture audio. if this doesnt work for you let me know. i have tons of note taking apps on my ipad

I checked out live notes but don't seem to like it any other suggestions? I just need to take notes and record lectures up to 2 and half hours.

Audio note is my favorite. Let's you record, type and draw then email to yourself the notes and separate audio file.

I have notes plus, I haven't delved into it entirely but it has note taking with keyboard and stylus or finger and recording. There are some great reviews of it, just google it.

I would love an audio tool that records voice but also converts the voice to text at the same time !

Have you tried dragon dictation, I haven't played with it much myself, but it does type up anything you say.. You will need to edit it a bit, but that's better than typing the lot. And it's free

Dragon is good, but in lecture situations and more than one voice or loud noises only about 70% accuracy. There is an app out there that I've seen that links your recording to your notes. Been so long I can't remember what it was. You just had to tap your note to make the recording play at that point. But that's what I do In my real live everyday work....I'm a court reporter. Voice recognition is getting there...just not yet with reliability. You need quiet and one voice that had been "trained" to recognize the sound. There is another source doing the take notes with the audio and tap on the notes to play it, but that's a special pen with special paper to activate it.

I think the app your thinking of is Notes Plus, well at least this app does record audio while making notes, and for playback you can tap a note you made and the audio will begin at that point. There's some great reviews on it. Just google it
