The Notes Plus app for iPad ($4.99) is a great way to take notes in whatever form suits you best. Whether it's by hand, typing or audio recording, Notes Plus can accommodate you; it's even possible to switch from one method to another and back in one note-taking document. You can use either your finger or a stylus, depending on your preference, and Notes Plus will convert your writing into the font of your choice. You also have, among other things, the ability to erase text, rearrange it or italicize certain lines. Then, when your notes are all in order, you can e-mail them to the world.
While some folks are happy to use their fingertips to control the iPad screen, others prefer to use a stylus, particular for handwriting. In an article for iMedical Apps, Dr. David Ahn reviewed seven different styluses. Check out his article to see which stylus might be right for you.
