As a medical student, I am always searching for better ways to take class notes on my iPad. I loved using Microsoft OneNote on my laptop, but hadn't been able to find anything comparable on the iPad.
Finally, Microsoft has created a OneNote app, and it's free for a limited time! You can sync your existing OneNote files using a Windows Live SkyDrive account. You can also create new notes from within the app. Of course, it doesn't have the full functionality of the Office program, but seems like a great alternative to lugging your PC around. And they've been cranking out the updates frequently, so the app just keeps getting better.
The display is optimized for iPhone/iTouch, so iPad users using a wireless keyboard may get a little annoyed at the ever-present on-screen keys while typing. Hopefully the developers will release an iPad-optimized version in the future.
I'll be exploring it more in detail this weekend, but in the mean time, I encourage you to check it out!
