Note Taking 📝
This is the best app I’ve found so far to take typed and handwritten notes in one place & organize them. It also syncs between all your devices for no cost, which is amazing!
This is my app of choice for digital note taking on my iPad Pro. An alternative to this is Notability, but strongly prefer Goodnotes.
