Wow! This is a cool app! PaperPort Notes... maybe one of my new favorites!
Early on in the world of iPads, I was a fan of Notarize. It allowed me to capture PDF's and enter text into the form on my iPad. I could even take a picture from the web, or with the introduction of the iPad-2 take a snapshot of a student's test. Using Notarize we could enter text easily.
Unfortunately, the company that made Notarize quit making it. So, while I still have it, I was unable to provide it for students.

Well, that's no longer an issue! The smart folks at Nuance, makers of Dragon Dictate and Mac-Speech have acquired Notarize, renaming it PaperPort Notes, and making it even better!
All the bells and whistles from the original app are present. Now though, they have included a built in web-browser, with the ability to take "web-shots". Even more impressive though is the ability to insert a text box, and instead of typing your answer, dictate it. It works really well!
There is a nicely designed help feature that pops up whenever your doing something for the first time. Or, if you prefer, you can download the user guide, and read it in the app itself.
Notes can be shared in PDF format, and can be password-protected. There is also the ability to write free-hand, or add drawings as necessary.
Also nice is the price... Free.
So once again, kudos to Nuance!
