So having considered a range of note-taking apps-it is now to time to recommend the best note-taking app for healthcare professionals. Overall many of these apps offer similar levels of functionality although there are two clear market leaders- Note Taker HD and Notes Plus.

Although the feature set is very similar between these two, there are a number of crucial key differences. Note Taker HD has a greater range of annotation options such as customizable shapes however where Note Taker HD really surpasses Notes Plus is the implementation of document management. Note Taker HD can be used to effectively manage multiple collections of documents and notes whilst exporting to a wide range of apps. The template function allows regularly used documents to be easily accessible. Notes Plus is still a fantastic app and worthy runner up but its inability to import files/mark up PDFs is the main limitation.

Although the learning curve associated with Note Taker HD can be steep, it has become the leading note-taking app which can use a stylus. It is highly recommended to all healthcare professionals who want to take notes on their iPad in a variety of situations. It would be wise to purchase PDF Expert too as we have evaluated a number of PDF management apps and consequently recommended it as the best way to link all these note-taking apps to Dropbox.
