Hi, I am a college student. I have an iPad and I want to know which is a good notes App that i can use my iPad to take my class notes? The features that I am looking for is, it should be compatible using s Stylus and has an option to make notebooks and create pages within them. If the application could sync those notes to any software in computer, that would be ideal (but not necessary). I have read reviews for applications like 'Notes plus' , 'Penultimate' , 'Notes to Share', they all have a very mixed rating so not sure, which would be ideal for me. If anyone knows any other App for any of these that would solve my purpose, it would be really helpful.

Thank you. Nitesh

Can you use a stylus with evernote?

EVERNOTE is working to integrate handwriting recognition, but you can use FastFinga to fill the gap.

As I posted above, inking on iDevices isn't ready for primetime. The lack of a true stylus is a major weakness.

Call me oldfashioned, but I wouldn't use an iPad for notetaking... Get a laptop, or, maybe, just maybe, what's wrong with a notebook and a fountain pen?
