@caleb: I prefer to write in Google Docs when possible so that I can transition from computer to computer without issue.

How does that work when you are on a plane without Internet access? (It may work well by caching or whatever -- I don't know -- I really am asking).

In the case of the iPad and Notes Plus, I think you can arrange it that your notes get synced through DropBox (which is what I use for my main computers).

Mostly I use my iPad to capture thought sand ideas -- then I transfer them to one of my other machines when I'd ready to convert them into articles...

@Caleb: I recently found myself in need of a portable system for writing while I travel...

The "Notes" app that comes with the iPad is rudimentary to say the least (although I do still use it on occasion).

But for what you want to do, I would totally recomment the Notes Plus app. Thsi is $8.99 from the iPad store and worth every penny. You can type, or use your finger to write cursive (there's also an optional handwriting to text add-in). You can select existing text and change the size, color, font... You can include multiple audio notes on each page. You can draw shapes with your finger and the app will detect whether you are drawing a triangle or a circle or square / rectangle and straignten up the lines and turn it into a resizable object.

Just check out the reviews in the app store...

Now that I think of it, I didn't include the "ghost clicks" and random reboots I've experienced either.
