Best app for taking notes during class/meetings


I have and use other handwriting apps as well. But the lack of lag when switching back and forth from handwriting and typing, and the ability to type anywhere immediately your finger/stylus immediately touches on the “paper,” make it the best for taking notes when you want to get everything quickly (when you want to type most of the time, but quickly switch to handwriting here and there to quickly draw a diagram or picture).

There’s a few things I would like to be added (like being able to skip to the end of a text box when pressing “cmd+right,” or toggling bold/italic etc text with “cmd+b/i,” etc), but other than that, that’s kinda nitpicking.

Best not taking and hand writing recognition app out there


Real note organizing. You write notes, the App types them for you. Couldn't be easier. Tag your notes by subject/folder.
