I never really got much use out of the Apple Pencil, to the point that when it slid out of an unzipped backpack pocket never to be seen again I opted not to replace it. However, the new pencil intrigues me enough that I ordered it along with my new iPad Pro. I’m hoping that the ability to attach it to the iPad and actually keep the thing charged up and ready to go will make me more likely to use it.
Right now I take all of my meeting notes in analog format (in a Field Notes Steno Book) but I’d like to try taking handwritten notes on the iPad using the pencil. I’m looking at different note taking apps and trying to decide which one to try. Right now I’m considering the Apple Notes app, GoodNotes, and Notability.
I’d really like an app with the ability to do handwriting recognition so I can search my notes, which would be a real improvement over taking notes on paper. That may be a tall order with my awful handwriting though.
Any opinions as to which of these three apps I should go with? Any other apps I should consider?
