I've tried Notability which is my fav so far. Just don't t like the categorization/organizational hierarchy.

Notes Plus sucks after their big *update*.

Note Taker HD - Meh

My list or requirements include:

ease of use
Pen Friendly
convert to PDF
auto syncing to Dropbox
voice recording capability
ability to easily categorize my notes.

Oh Note! Fix your thread title buddy. ;)

I still have a special place in my heart for Penultimate.

The name of the app you are recommending is called Oh Note!? I can't seem to find that in the app store or on Google.

should be: "Oh, note!" your thread title says "Not Taking app receommendations"...as in you're not taking any recommendations....

I hear ya....I love the app itself.. it truly does it all well EXCEPT for saving notes to folders and more importantly to sub-folders.

If you are looking for that feature Evernote will save to folders and sub-folders.

Well that was a complete waste of $4.99. Awful handwriting ability. Very laggy even on an iPad 3. I did like the organizational capabilities and "flags". Just doesn't cut it with the basics. Back to Notability for me. Thx all.
