This app has infinite potential with its intuitive and simple handwriting function, as well as incorporating a number of more sophisticated features such as an extensive selection of ink and paper styles, allowing you to become an artist as well as efficient note-taker using the iPad. Its organisation system allows pages to be filed, easily extracted and moved around; the app also has the option of importing image files to be edited on the go.
