As a graduate student and freelance designer, I take a LOT of notes. Finding the right apps to use for note taking is essential, as I've discovered not all note taking apps are created equal while done on a tablet. Some incorporate audio recording or the ability to add sketches alongside text, several which I've gathered and believe are well worth the cost of a fancy latte to download...
