I want to make the switch to using my iPad for reading all the articles I use at school. My problem is that I've gotten into a habit of using sticky notes as an easy way to flag important information in hardcopies. Non of the PDF readers that I've tried to date have a good sticky note function. Primarily I would like to be able to make sticky notes on a particular page, but I want the ability to view all the notes on a document in aggregate. This would speed up the process of finding the relevant notes, I won't have to scroll throw the entire document to find each note on its respective page. If anyone knows of an app that has this function, please let me know.

I found GoodReader to be perfect for this
I didn't realize GoodReader had this functionality -- thanks for pointing it out!

From a newbie to the OP: to get it to work, you tap the "bookmarks" button, but then you have to select "Annotations" at the bottom of the Bookmarks window. In this window you'll just see a short clip of your annotations. To see the entirety of your annotations, tap "E-mail Summary" button at the top. This will put all your annotations in a draft e-mail; you can read them here, or copy this into another file, or (wait for it...) e-mail them to yourself.

I will throw a pitch as well to GoodReader, it is a very robust reader app with good developer support.
