Best apps for keeping notes

With these apps you can write notes by hand, sketch, doodle, take snapshots of text, and create voice memos.

Moleskine recently created a free “bare-bones” digital version of the iconic notebook once favored by Picasso and now used by “the cool kids at your coffee shop.” Choose from lined, gridded, or blank pages, and fill them with random thoughts or sketches. You can also geotag each note so you can remember where you were when inspiration hit. (iPhone and iPad only)

Evernote is a free app that “eschews minimalism in favor of letting you capture and edit anything, anywhere.” Besides typing in a thought, you can create voice memos or even take snapshots of text—then access all of your notes via your computer or phone.

Note Taker HD is a handy $5 app for iPad users who like writing by hand, drawing complex charts, or just doodling. You can easily export your jottings to Evernote or similar programs.
