    I've been using the Notes app on my iPad to take notes during class. I love the fact that it automatically syncs to my iPhone and email account. The one drawback is that I can't edit the notes on my PC. Does anyone have a better suggestion?

    Thanks.

    Use Evernote instead. Cross platform.. Windows, OSX, iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone 7, or plain old web browser. No file conversions necessary. It just works.

    I had to go to the UPS Customer Service location today to pickup a package that I missed while at work.

    While waiting for my driver to arrive, I noticed several other people were also waiting.

    Turns out I was the ONLY person NOT waiting on the iPhone 5. icon_lol.gif

    Microsoft One Note works well. Syncs up with SkyDrive so you can access it anywhere.

    PenUltimate is also cool. You can sync that up with your DropBox account if you have one. I use this one more often.

    I use Notability for iPad. You can type or write on it. Check it out and watch the videos. It has great functionality to add your scribbles on any PDF file which can be either copied to the program through iTunes or email! It can also sync to your Dropbox. icon_biggrin.gif

    The only thing I use the "notes" app for is making lists, and only because it's sort of the default. Grocery list, lab supplies list, things for the boats, books & albums to check out. Without any action on my part, it randomly sends some, but not all, of these lists to me as email messages. I find it quite annoying. However, it might have some functionality for you. There must be "settings" or something to control this. Although it's possible that it's an iCloud function.

    +1 for Evernote. Writepad (iPad) is pretty good too, it syncs with Evernote which is handy.
