    Title says it all, I'm looking for a note taking app other than the native one which would have more capabilities and other apps that would be useful for me as I enter the college world. Also, what word/excel/PowerPoint app do you recommend?

    Thanks in advance.

    As for a amazing note taking app check out complete class organizer. I just downloaded it for college myself and it's turning out to be one of the best apps I've ever bought. Grade calculation, audio recording that synchs with the words you write at the same time for easy play back, web and picture attachment to your notes, iPad calendar support within the app, textbook finder, and man just way too many things to explain but seriously check it out. It's perfect for note taking on every aspect. $4.99 for it. Only one that pops up when you type in complete class organizer.

    And for word excel and PowerPoint get the apple equivalents, pages(word) numbers(excel) and keynote(PowerPoint). They're what apple developed to compete with Microsoft office software and just about exactly the same, all the same features, templates, fonts, equations, slide transitions, and when you buy each it will come with a doc telling you how to do every single thing on it. They're $9.99 each and definitely all you'll need to type papers, make spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations for college I can promise you that!

    I also am wondering what apps to get, as using it for school is the primary reason I purchased an iPad 2. I've been using Evernote, and it's working okay for me, though I do need something better to track due dates and homework. Going to check out the Complete Class Organizer now.

    I've been hesitant to get Pages et al. I want to use my iPad to help type up some small assignments and what not, but i'm so hesitant to move away from MS Office...

    Yeah, complete class organizer is great. And pages, yeah I was a bit hesitant also but it really has every single feature office does in a easy to use format on the iPad. You can't save them directly as documents on the iPad versions, but you can save them to the cloud them bring them back in those formats. It's a great addition for writing papers

    I was wrong, opened the iWork apps today and you can actually email the doc straight from the app in Microsoft word format. So definitely great apps to have!
