Record everything. By integrating traditional text notes with audio, Pear Note ensures that you never miss a thing.

Do you:

Look at your notes and wonder what they mean?
Pear Note can jump straight to the point in the recording where you typed that note, so you can listen to what was going on at the time and use the recording to interpret your notes.

Find that your notes have large gaps?
Pear Note lets you navigate to the end of the notes you did take, so you can listen to or watch what was going on when you zoned out.

- Instantly jump to anywhere in the recording by tapping the text
- Rich text notes, including bulleted and numbered lists, highlighting, and text styles
- Sync notes via Dropbox to other iPads, iPhones, iPod touches, or laptop/desktop computers running Pear Note
- Inline images which can be taken with the built-in camera, inserted from your photos, or copy/pasted from other apps
- Search to help you find your notes quickly
- Background recording to keep recording if you switch to another app
- Add PDF slides to notes and record when they are changed, then use slides to navigate the recording as well
- Play back video synced from laptop/desktop computers running Pear Note
- Universal app runs on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch

The files saved to Pear note folder on Dropbox are not RTF!

I tried to open them using Bean and Pages but could not.

This makes Pear useless, I want my money back

So close to being amazing

It works, and very well too. Makes training days's pleasant. However, the only way to save the audio is via dropbox, no quick saving via iTunes. On a 16 gig iPad, I need to shift content off, often and quickly. Dropbox is great, but becomes at best a lengthy chore when it's the only method and at worst has no use case in a non wifi area.

Great App

For the price this is amazing.
Really nice implementation. Easy to use and perfect for meeting notes.
I like the extra keyboard keys which is very neat and useful.
Only thing I could not find was an undo button.
The recording seems to work really well.
