    Hi Sig,
    Think you should complete the list with SmartTM app for iOS. The app was launched also in july and it’s really popular. My friend recommended it to me and it was the best spent 3,99 in my life (now the app is cheaper I think). regards!

    If I may suggest MagicalPad, it is flexible app for school that does outlining, mind mapping and of course note taking. It is powerful for organizing your thoughts or taking structured notes for exams.
