Notepad+ Note taking, Drawing, Sketching, Doodling & Writing for iPad app review: the only handwriting app you'll ever need

Reviews

Introduction

Touted as being the only handwriting app you’ll ever need, this awesome utility for iPad provides a wide variety of tools that you can use to create stylized handwritten or typed notes, as well as sketches and other creative outlets.

The best iPad apps for painting and sketching

I really like the idea of enabling people to work ‘freehand’ on their iPad, and of course the larger screen combined with a stylus makes for some very enjoyable doodling. Even if you don’t have a stylus I think you’ll still find this app incredibly useful.

Notepad+ can be used for everything from recording minutes from a business meeting to jotting down ideas for that killer new song you’re writing, so whatever your pursuit you’re almost sure to find a purpose for it.

Create Awesome Notes and Doodles

Notepad+ Note taking, Drawing, Sketching, Doodling & Writing for iPad has been designed as an all-purpose handwriting and note-taking utility that you can use for, well, just about any occasion ranging from the personal to the purely professional.

The best iPad apps for drawing

There is a selection of ink pens and highlighters to choose from, all available in a range of different colors to produce a more accurate handwriting and doodling experience, but you can also type your notes if required. Either way, images can be attached to enhance the overall presentation.

There are also some different styles of paper to choose from, ranging from yellow ruled to plain white, so you can easily distinguish between your sketches, journal entries, meeting notes, and so on.

I’m also pleased to see that the developer has included an option for backing up your work via iTunes File Sharing, Evernote, and Dropbox, and you can even share your creations with your friends and colleagues online via email.
