    Hello!
    I own a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet, and after getting used to it, i'd like to make my workflow 100% digital. This includes note-taking in school etc. I'm looking for a piece of software, which would emulate a digital notebook, without any writing recognition (like Ink). I know I could in theory take notes in Photoshop, but it can get really cumbersome if you have to work with many "sheets of paper" and saving them as individual files. Do any such apps (preferably free) exist?
    Thanks! :)

    I think Wacom itself offers a notes software under the name Bamboo...(forgot the total name). You may want to check on their site.

    There's also NoteLedge that is $20. Bamboo Paper is included with Bamboo Dock (you might have to download it separately from the website, they don't include it anymore it seems).

    There's this app called Equil Note that's free and sync to iCloud/Dropbox too. It's meant for their pen, but it works fine with my Intuos. You have plenty of shortcuts on your 4, so you could flexibly make it very easy to add a new book, page, and go between modes/colors/pages. It goes to fullscreen too.
