Posted by Jason Dunn in "Laptop Thoughts Talk" @ 12:00 PM

Last week I did something for the first time: I took my iPad 2, my Apple Bluetooth keyboard, and a pair of headphones - nothing else - and went to my local library to do some writing work. Read more...

Note Taking on the iPad, So Many Choices

"Let's say you're off to a lecture at college, or a meeting at work. You'll need to take notes, but you've got a busy day, and you'll be running around a lot. You could take your laptop, though its weight may drag you down, or you could save your back some strain and bring your iPad instead. (The heaviest iPad weighs only 1.6 pounds compared to lightest laptop ever, the 2.3-pound MacBook Air.)"

I really have come to enjoy taking notes on my iPad in meetings or even during work projects. There are several note taking apps out there, as I'm sure you are all aware, so you really have to find the ones that fit into what you are trying to accomplish. For me, I use several, some of which are mentioned in this article, such as SimpleNote [itunes link]. I use SimpleNote for notes that I want to share among devices such as my iPad and iPhone. Mainly they are notes that I am adding to frequently, some work related and some for personal use. If I want a combo program that lets me combine typing with writing (in certain meetings you just have to doodle don't you?), then I use Notes Plus [affiliate link]. Combine that with the Hard Candy stylus and you have a winner. You could also make your own stylus, but it doesn't look as good as the Hard Candy stylus.

So what note taking apps do you use?
