It’s time for round two of Digital Union staff members’ favorite iPad apps. These are the apps that will help us all with taking and organizing notes. Good for students, staff and instructors alike, these apps all make it fun and easy to take notes on your iPad (or iPhone), and email or save your notes so you can access them virtually anywhere (no pun intended).
Evernote is a fantastic note-taking app that lets you create text, image, or voice notes that are saved to an online database, so you can see your notebooks from any internet capable device. Evernote also allows you to search your notes by text or the location where the note was taken, which it locates automatically each time you open the app.
If you want to take notes on your iPad with a stylus or your own fingertips, Penultimate is a simple app that you will love. It includes a full (and fun!) tutorial of the app, different paper types, and options for multiple notebooks. It will also email the notebooks as PDF’s so you can share your notes.
Awesome app that lets you scan something (notes, receipt, recipe, menu, document) and then email it as a PDF or JPEG, or save it to Dropbox or Evernote with the Genius Scan+ version. It even has perspective correction, and you can scan multiple pages and crop or straighten. You could skip note-taking altogether and just snap a pic of the whiteboard.
