    hi guys i have 2 years left at college and i have my iPhone 4 and apple wireless keyboard. Does anyone know of any good apps besides the standard note app for note taking? one with white background preferably and uses more of the screen.

    also do you think its abit geeky while everyone in my class is jotting down with paper and pen im their with my bluetooth keyboard and phone?

    You could try ever note, I use this for college on my iPad and so far has done everything I need it to do other than when I need to draw diagrams. Also it syncs with the cloud so then you can get your notes wherever you are.

    Either Ricky Ponting answered on the wrong thread or he's on some special tobacco. :D

    I would recommend an iPad for this also, but I don't see why a iPhone 4 wouldn't work, I use Evernote, but not in the heavy manner that you want and I use it mainly on my iPad.

    Good luck in your studies.

    If I saw you in class taking notes on an iphone I would laugh at you.

    If you ever want to get laid, leave the iphone at home and bring a laptop or take notes with pen and paper.

    Seeing that you have an iPad, use that.

    I love Awesome Note too. I've never used it to take notes for class, but I use it to jot down ideas and make lists and to-dos. I really enjoy using this app.

    I also previously used "Momento" to keep a daily journal, and although it has a nice interface, there are still many things missing such as landscape keyboard. But the developers of that app haven't been very effective in releasing timely updates for it (they're constantly moving back the release date of their updates), so that's why I switched to Awesome Note, which I love now.

    If you want to keep a journal you might want to try MacJournal it is very good.

    buy a netbook/ipad

    jotting down ideas =/= taking notes you will use for your education/exams

    if you take notes in college invest a little bit of money upfront for something more powerful than a simple notepad/sketchpad
