    Hi,
    I've been wondering for quite some time if there was any app that can allow you to take notes, as well as be able to import PDFs, Word Docs, etc, and have them organized in files.
    The currently us PDF Expert and Notability separately, but I wished there was an app that can do both.

    I tried searching for threads like this, but none of it turned out to be what I was looking for.

    Any recommendations?

    thanks in advance :D

    I favor Notability. I use Goodreader for reading docs, but for actual note taking, Notability.

    You can't work with PDFs in Notability?

    I'll give it a try and see if I like it or not :D

    ----------

    I'm going to give it a try with drop box and see how it goes...

    It can import PDFs fine, just the way I like, but not being able to add sticky notes like PDF expert is a big bummer for me.....

    Oh well.....
    looks like I'm going to be working with PDF Export and Notability for the time being.

    Hopefully Apple will allow drawings and hand writing feature in Pages app.

    like I said.. Goodreader has those features..you can add notes to a pdf, draw on it, etc. As a separate note taking program, it has a basic one that saves as a txt file that you can export it via email. but its not as great as a dedicated note taking app as mentioned earlier.. but its functional.

    Yeah, I draw all over PDF lecture slides with Goodreader. Absolutely essential iPad app in my opinion. Love the Dropbox syncing too.

    haha, I tried it out today morning (depending on where you live, it will be different, but let's just say it was 13 hours ago) and it works absolutely fine!
    Thank you! But.... I still wish the functions were as good as PDF Expert and Notability, but it's good that there is an app that can bring the best of both world into one place :D
