    Lightbulb Looking for some App suggestions
    Of course free is preferred, but if one is truly worth paying for, we don't mind. So I should start off by saying that I finally bought an iPad2. The first gen didn't interest me much, but after seeing how mature some of the apps have become, as well as the OS for that matter, it only took a few reasons to go ahead and get one. Truth be told, I bought it for my wife, who travels internationally for work, and she also loves to read so it's perfect for her.

    I've already gotten the iWorks suite for her, as well as Bento, Garageband, iMovie and some other miscellaneous stuff, which thankfully were free thanks to work She's using Pages right now, and asked if there was a thesaurus feature in it, to which I said that there was only (as far as I know) a dictionary feature. We looked and found one fairly decent thesaurus app, but were wondering if there was anyway to get one that was able to tie directly in with using Pages?

    I also would love to find her a very good note taking app, one you can use a stylus with for free hand. One that has a safety feature so that you can rest your palm while writing, as well as other useful things such as dropbox integration or cloud based... either way. Oh, and perhaps one that integrates voice based dictation perhaps? The more features the better I guess. Non free is fine, so long as the devs update often and it's worth it.

    Is there a thread dedicated to suggested apps that I don't know about maybe?

    There is one dedicated to notes - I'll see if I can find it.

    Here you go. I haven't used mine in a while - I actually have about 4 - but just couldn't get used to using the stylus and haven't gone back to try again in a while

    Thanks dude. (are we too old for dude?). Right now I'm looking at notes plus and note taker HD. Underscore Notify looks ok-ish as well. I just figured that one of these apps would make a good companion to Pages.

    I hate to admit this, but my top two APPs by usage are:

    FreeCell
    Sudoku



    I have a lot of note taking APPs that I intended to try out and eventually use, but I find myself using the built-in Note APP instead (when I'm not playing FreeCell or Sudoku that is) . . .
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
