I tried taking notes for a period of time on my iPad. I used the basic third party stylus and tried most of the top rated note taking apps, but after a while I returned to my non-digital notebooks because I was never pleased with this way of doing it. I played with the new Surface Pro 3 after reading about it's handwritten note-taking ability. I really liked what I saw, but I don't know if I want to purchase the device and switch eco systems just for the note taking. Has there been real improvements in iPad hand written note taking? Thanks!
