I kid you not, I used this app everyday in college.

I studied electrical engineering, and it was fantastic for writing notes, writing equations, drawing diagrams, switching between different colors, annotating PDFs, importing images, doing voice recordings, etc. It was super easy to organize everything and all my material backed up automatically to Dropbox. My iPad was all I ever brought to class (since I had pdf versions of textbooks imported into this app as well!).

10/10 recommend. The only issue I found is that having the right stylus is key to using this app (or any hand-writing app for that matter) successfully. I haven't been in the stylus game for about a year now, but I swore by this: http://www.justgosmart.com/200m#200-m-series
