    Not the prettiest interface but it looks like the functionality is there.

    Not bad... I'm not sure if I have a use for this, but I can see how a lot of people would. Anyway, it's a good example of how the large screen of the iPad makes it far more than "just a big iPod Touch".

    This is a great example of one of a use case for the iPad: College Students. FAR more capable than an iPhone/iTouch

    If this works decently with a stylus I will buy this in a heartbeat and use it to take notes in class

    Great find. This is exactly what i was imagining when i thought about using this in class. Being able to fill out forms and highlight PDFs is going to be awesome. I have a class that i have about 3 separate 5 page PDFs this will be awesome to use then look at when i am taking the online quizzes. With a stylus, this app will make this person a ton of money. Until One-Note comes out of course. That program is the bomb.

    I was under the impression you can use a stylus on any app. Do apps have to be written specifically to use a stylus?

    OK, that looks awesome and it's the sort of app the iPad will need to really take hold, IMO
    At a hardware level the iPad really is "just a big iPod touch" (that's not meant in any way to be derogatory) but it's the apps that will set it apart. Once apps start appearing that are specific for the iPad, we'll really see what it's capable of

    See, as everyone is saying, the iPad is ONLY a big iPod Touch. It will never have it's own apps written for it, exploiting capabilities not present on an iPod Touch. :rolleyes:

    I don't think anyone ever said that it won't have optimized apps for it. The idea that it's "just a big iPod Touch" comes from the fact that it uses exactly the same OS, features, limitations, and all.

    Case in point: this app exports to a desktop as a PDF or JPEG through email, neither format being appropriate for a working document. This is because notes aren't documents - they are pictures. Without mutli-tasking you can't open more than one document at once, and even with multi-tasking, you can't open two instances of the app.

    This app isn't comparable to OneNote, but it looks like a fantastic PDF annotator.

    What does this have to do with limitations of the iPad?
