With epiNote HD your iPad becomes an electronic canvas on which you can draw, write and/or type text to produce a screen image.
You can also import and include photos, website clippings, maps and icons. Or, you could open documents (such as .pdf, .doc, .xls and .ppt files) and paste a section of the document to your screen for marking up.
Once you have placed content on your screen, you can re-organize its layout using a selection tool to assemble, craft and compose your page.
Used as a note taker, you can "write small" with your finger or stylus and make full use of the entire screen space. The auto-advance feature lets you write continuously with minimal disruption.
Whether you're drawing or writing, it's quick and easy to change pens, colors, thicknesses or highlighters and there's a unique eraser feature which lets you do very precise clean up jobs without your finger getting in the way.
You can mark up annotate or caption photos using multi-colored highlighters. Make it snazzy with the cool free icons.
Then re-size, rotate and re-position content anywhere you want on the screen. Tidy up as you write, or re-arrange your composition later when you review your notes.
Organize your work in folders and back it up on Dropbox, or email it as a jpg or png file.
Students, use epiNote for serious note-taking in lectures.
Teachers, use epiNote to prepare lessons and mirror the iPad screen on a projector or LCD monitor (requires iPad 2).
Business users, illustrate, visualize and brain storm your ideas in meetings and create documentation content.
Great features include:
-DRAW, WRITE OR TYPE
Freestyle finger draw anywhere on the screen with an infinite choice of pen and highlighter combinations.
Use the write mode to "write small". Write naturally on the screen and your writing will be automatically "zoomed" or scaled to fit a smaller area which you can adjust, stretch and position. The auto-advance feature allows you to write continuously with minimal disruption.
Right to left writing is supported for other languages.
Or simply type. There's a full range of fonts and colors.
There's a great eraser tool with configurable offsets for detail clean up work. Our adjustable width eraser tool lets you specify an offset so you can see what you are erasing.
-SELECT, CUT, COPY, MOVE AND PASTE
epiNote has great tools for you to shuffle content around. Select almost anything on the screen using the selection box. Move it around, re-size the selection box or rotate it and then paste it anywhere on the screen .
-MAPS, PHOTOS AND WEBSITE CLIPS

Impress by polishing off your notes with our VERY COOL FREE icons. Or customize by creating and using your own icons. Download the free icon set from our website.
You can open any file as a background and create your own underlay, ruled sheets, graph paper, grids, templates etc. You could also use backgrounds to fill in forms, for example, take a photo of a form and open it as a background, write onto it and sign it off. Erase mistakes without erasing the form. Finally, merge the completed form with the background and email it off.
-FILES, FOLDERS AND DROPBOX

Ratings and Reviews
This app is brilliant. Very easy to use, intuitive. Lots of features. The selection tool won it for me. It allows accurate positioning of items on the screen. Seems that something this simple should be found in all apps of this type. But it's not and the implemention here is the best.
The latest version has it all. Typed text with a full range of fonts, sizes and colors, easy pen selection with highlighters, support for importing pdf, doc and xls files, integrated browser for websits and paste in maps! Too much to write about.
And it's fun to use.
very useful and easy to use
We use it all the time for capturing screen shots, cropping and captioning. It has the best utilites for shuffling stuff around the screen. Also a clever eraser feature where you can change offset for accurate clean up work.
File/Folder and Dropbox support is excellent, more comprehensive than any other app. Save button not obvious (doesnt appear if nothing to save) but there are quick save buttons to overwrite a file or create a new file with an automatic timestamp name.
Not the Most user friendly
I love this app and it is very easy to write. So far I have been able to write quickly with my finger with out any lagging. Three things I wish this app had:
1. better file organization
-nice if it had a save button
-wish it organized files into journals like apple's notetaker program
2. write to text feature
-it would be nice if the things I quickly wrote by hand could be changed into text so that I can copy and paste them onto my computer and easily go back and fix spelling (also would make handwriting easier to read)
-I hate typing on my i-pad's touch keyboard so when I take notes in class I almost always use the writing feature (this is why I don't just use the typing feature so I can have text)
3. A tutorial
-maybe there is one already out there but I feel like this app has so much potential but it is a little hard to figure things out
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
