Note-taking skills are critical in universities. Effective listening, clear handwriting, organized outlines and recording of key points are among the most critical note-taking skills.

Students, journalists, and businesspeople have suffered for note taking. The features you want depends largely on what you’ll be using a note-taking app for. Here are the two note-taking apps currently available.

SoundNote tracks what you type and draw while recording audio, so you'll never worry about missing an important detail. While playing back your recording, just tap a word; SoundNote will jump right to that point in the audio. It is perfect for students and journalists.

It is about connecting their notes with images and the audio. For many students it is the audio or the graphics that are connected to their notes are important, this tool allows you to combine all three.

This would be great for lectures, recording a demo in a prac subject or even documenting the procedure for a Science experiment. This is the simple type of app that will really convince both staff and the students that the iPad can be beneficial in the educational setting.

LectureRecordings is an Android app for audio recording, designed while having a user at university (or at school) in mind, for instance a lecturer who is using it for recording her/his lecture while teaching, or a student who is using it for recording the lecture's audio while taking handwritten notes during a lecture.

it requires no internet connection, lets audio signals to be recorded and replayed, encourages lectures to be recorded while taking handwritten notes using LectureNotes and allows lectures to be replayed in a synchronized manner along with the handwritten notes taken using LectureNotes.
