For the most part, I try to keep the majority of the work that I do stored digitally. This usually includes using tools like:

When it comes to taking notes, I’m no different. Now, I’m not 100% digital – there’s still nothing tops sketching in a moleskine or on paper – however, there’s something to be said for being able to carry nothing but an iPad and a stylus for taking notes.

And when it comes to that, I’ve found no better application than Bamboo Paper

Bamboo Paper

In short, Bamboo Paper is a free iPad application that works great with the Bamboo Stylus.

Using Bamboo Paper

Out of all of the notebook apps I’ve tried, it’s the best especially when it comes resting your hand on the screen.

Anyway, on top of that, the application offers the following features:

  • Support for multiple notebooks
  • Notebooks can be exported to Evernote, PDFs, or other formats
  • The ability to erase, highlight, and select different pens
  • Different styles of paper so that you can setup each notebook based on its needs
  • …and more

Aside from Paper, this is the single most used application on my iPad. Normally, I wouldn’t even bother blogging something about it; however, over the past three weeks, I’ve had three different people ask me about it while using it while sitting in an audience, out in public, or whatever.

This Won’t Work For You

Or maybe it will. The posts in this particular series of posts aren’t meant to be telling you guys what you should be using.

Who does that?

But it’s simply meant to show what I’ve found to work for me in case you’re on the lookout for something similar. Right now, I’m clearly a fan, but I’m also on the lookout for whatever other applications are available.

Feel free to share your favorite apps, as well!
