Apps To Convert / Organize Handwritten Notes Of Stylus To Text

I am thinking of buying an ipad even though I have some extremely negative feelings for Steve BUT! I am putting that aside in recognition of a very good product here. Now I am thinking of buying the 499 ipad for books mostly which it is very very good for. Now I am about to go into college and I'm pretty sure that the cost of books for 4 years will greatly exceed 500 so this is why I am considering it.
The only thing that is currently holding me back is.Notes.I've already found a pretty sweet stylus for capacitive touch screens online; now all I need is an app.I would like an app that can take my handwritten notes from my sweet stylus and convert it to text (kind of like the Micro Courier concept video) and have a decent UI for organizing them by dates or w.e

Won't Find Apps For Taking Handwritten Notes
I'm swinging between buying an iPad or waiting till the HP Slate debuts. I'm not buying the iPad for music or movies or bookstore... my main function on the iPad will be reading PDF's and taking notes (I would enjoy the occasional movie on that but thats secondary).

I want to know, are there any apps for taking handwritten notes? I do not want it to recognize my writing and convert to letters. I just want it to record exactly what I draw on the screen.. and it would be great if I can arrange them by the date or by some topic.

Also. is there an easier way to copy PDF's from my PC to the iPad? Is there any way to natively read our own PDFs?

Why Do People Prefer To Take Handwritten Notes On Ipad
Writing with pen and paper has following advantages It costs almost nothing to buy pen and paper. You can possibly get them free from your work or school.
Writing on paper with a pen is much faster than writing on touch screen devices either with a stylus or finger. They will last longer than digital notes. Traditional handwritten notes last well beyond 20 years if preserved with sufficient care. But you never know when new technology will make your ddigital note obsolete any day. Also with paper notes you don't need to think about having same hardware and software when you need to amend them! No one will steal your paper notes!If you really need to digitise your notes, you can always scan them and get them into computer.If you already have a tablet, then probably not makes sense to type the note in the first place.

Does an app exist that does this preferably that supports evernote? I plan to type a lot but it's easier to handwrite certain notes. Also are iPad 2s available in apple stores yet I plan to get one tomorrow?

Stylus For Taking Notes?
I am looking for a stylus for my new iPad for note-taking in classes. Is this the only one which can write as small as a ball point pin? Also, anything else cheaper? Or is $20 the cheapest for a pen of this caliber? I am a college student, so I am not rolling in money, and want to make sure before I take a stab at it with this pen or another.

Writing Notes With A Stylus And Note Taking App?
There are some posts in the forum for using a stylus and note taking app for the iPad. Seems like everyone is using something different? I'd like to use them for writing notes as you would with a pen and paper. I don't want a stylus that you have to press really hard to use it. Has anyone had good success for writing notes with a stylus and note taking app? Which ones?

Take Lecture/meeting Notes On The Screen With A Stylus?
I am contemplating purchasing a tablet, either a new iPad or the soon to be released Asus Transformer 700. The decision will mostly be driven by the best application to suit my intent. I want to get away from piles of paper with notes and scribles and be able to sort and save in a nice easily accessible system.I want to be able to take lecture/meeting notes on the screen with a stylus of sorts while at the same time recording the audio of the lecture/ meeting. I have tried to find the best suitable app for this and have come up with Notability or possibly Soundnote for the iPad or Supernote for the Transformer but reviews are of course not always the best tool for making a $600 decision. Another important aspect will be the ease with which to export the information to a PC. Seems that is not really insurmountable on either tablet.Other important considerations are that I am a lefty and write in that funny lefthanded way with my hand curved over the top of my pen so I need to be able to not have my hand/wrist interfere when they rest on the surface. Character recognition would be nice but I have yet to find the software that can recognize my writing, so probably almost impossible. Exporting to MSWord and PDFs would also be very nice.

Taking Notes With Stylus And Decent Word Processor?
I'm wondering maybe you guys can give me some advice. I bought my iPad primarily to replace my MacBook in school but I am disappointed so far.My first issue is the lack of a decent word processor.I bought pages only to be dissappointed (it's problems have been discussed in other threads). My second issue is taking notes with a stylus is not what I expected! I tried many apps already except for that new "HD something" but I have a feeling it won't impress me.

I just hope that i can get a refund on my Apple case! I know i'll lose the 30 bucks for the power support ag film.

IPad 2 :: Open A Notetaking App And Use A Stylus To Handwrite Notes While Recording Audio
I'm a journalist that just received a brand new iPad 2 for christmas from my wonderful girlfriend. I did a search and didn't see a thread already dedicated to people in the profession that make use of this awesome device. How do you use it? What apps have been the most useful? Which ones would you stay away from?

Currently, I've got all the newspapers and magazines I read downloaded which makes it awesome for keeping up with stuff and not having to carry them all around with me. Can't wait till my subscriptions are up for renewal and I can change to "digital only" to start cutting down on my paper use. I also love all the tablet only publications like The Atavist and The Daily. I'm taking a class next semester call "Long Form Digital" with an editor from the Atavist, and really excited I now have an iPad.

Anyway, I want to start incorporating this more into my daily usage as a journalist. Ideally, I want to take this thing with me on reporting assignments. My dream would be to have some sort of notebook that safely holds my iPad on one side and papers on the other that. Anyone know of anything like this? There are so many products out there for protecting your iPad, its a bit overwhelming. What do you guys think are the most effective? What about bags? I'm thinking of getting one of those Timbuk2 ones that has a sleeve designed to hold a tablet.

When I need to interview someone, I could pull it out, open a notetaking app, and use a stylus to handwrite notes while recording audio. I picked up the Targus "executive" stylus+pen but I will be returning it. The design is uncomfortable to hold and its much too heavy. Any recommendations on the best stylus until that awesome looking iPen on kickstarter comes out? I also got noteability and it seems to be working pretty well. My only complaint is with the palm-gaurd. Any other recommendations for apps with notetaking + audio recording?

Recovering Deleted Text From Notes App?
I had an existing note that I was editing yesterday and somehow I hit a key combination that deleted all the text in the Note (quite a lot). I have since found the undo key on the keyboard but this would not restore the text that was deleted. I have tried everything to recover it but no luck.

I have not turned off the iPad since this happened nor have I synced. Are Notes synced in iTunes? If so, where do I find them?

how to recover my Note?

Unable To Organize Apps After Jailbreak?
So the JB went great, flew right through it just as expected.

Here is the issue I am running into,

When I try to organize my apps, I hold my finger on an app until they all start know the drill.

When I try to move the app left, right, up, or down. If I move left, the app goes right...if I go up, the app goes down.

Anyone else experiencing this or have any ideas how to resolve the issue?

Unable To Convert An URL Page-can Convert It To A PDF And Print It Later?

Also, can I convert it to a PDF and print it later?I figure Pages has a print capability, but I want to print a random URL page.

I currently have a printer setup with my main computer connected via usb cable to my printer with Bonjour(vista) installed.I can print wirelessly with my other computer also which is a laptop. Bonjour found my printer and installed it on my laptop.I use a PC and a program called Robprint to print out what is on my computer screen using the PrtScrn button on my keyboard.

Won't Find Apps For Takings Notes
I am new to the forums but I was hoping someone knowledgeable on the forums will be able to help me out. I currently own a desktop computer (PC) and then I also have my Macbook Pro 17" for when im traveling. My reason for purchasing an Ipad however was so I can use it for use at school (notes primarily). Prior to purchasing the ipad I would use MS word on my macbook and use the Notebook layout view (for those of you that arent familiar with it, it makes taking notes extremely easy, provides lined paper/notebook view, and makes bullet points different for each fact, etc.). I am now on the search to find an app that is the closest to that, and will make my lecture note taking organized and easy. I did purchase the keyboard dock to take with me for my classes as well to make the typing faster.

Apps For Taking Notes In College
I've tried many different apps for taking notes and i'm still searching. I have a Bluetooth Wireless keyboard and I was trying to find an app that lets me outline notes in a similar fashion to Microsoft Word or even better Microsoft One Note. The closest i've found is Pages but the bulletin system is meager at best and doesn't support bulletin at multiple levels of bullets.

IPad 2 :: Organizing Notes From Different Apps?
As I infer from some of the posts on this site, I am like many of you--I am always looking for the best tool to keep myself organized. Ideally, I would have an application that would allow me to jot down zoomed notes (like I can in Note Taker HD), while recording the audio of a meeting or lecture (like I can in Notability), with a PDF of the meeting's agenda and my annotations handy (iAnnotate PDF). Oh, and it would be great to handwrite and send a few emails from within the same app, as well.

Of course, there does not seem to be an application that does all of this well, so I have a bunch of apps, and each one handles an aspect of my typical workflow. The result of this is that my notes are in several different applications, and I often cannot remember where I put them. I recognize that this is not a problem with the device or the applications, but rather the issue lies within myself. Still, I would like some advice from you all about how I might collect all of my notes into one place and keep track of them.
