Pear Note for iPad integrates features more commonly found in text editors (e.g., bold, italics, underline, highlighting, styles, bullet points and lists, and RTF format) while still maintaining the ease of use of a top notch note taking app. Pear Note automatically syncs via Dropbox (to the Mac app of the same name), has a very useful extended keyboard, and allows you to organize notes into folders. It is also one of the few apps that can record audio and sync it to your typed text, even highlighting the words you typed when the recorded audio was spoken. While this is an impressive feature, and Pear Note is generally impressive, it can’t be truly great unless it offers a way to export your notes without signing up for another service or connecting to your iTunes.

What is it about?

Record everything. By integrating traditional text notes with audio, Pear Note ensures that you never miss a thing.

App Store Description

Do you:

Look at your notes and wonder what they mean?
Pear Note can jump straight to the point in the recording where you typed that note, so you can listen to what was going on at the time and use the recording to interpret your notes.

Find that your notes have large gaps?
Pear Note lets you navigate to the end of the notes you did take, so you can listen to or watch what was going on when you zoned out.
