It's very good. I don't know why this app isn't more popular. I've been using Noteshelf that cost $4.99 and found Upad almost accidentally. This is a free version and is still much better than Noteshelf maybe except for a couple minor drawbacks.(it's a tad slower when I magnify the writing area too big, and there's no pencil/eraser tool bar on magnified area. I have to use the tool bar on top of the page which is a little inconvenient when trying to write something in a hurry. Image crop function would be nice too)

Writing is very smooth and responsive- even slightly better than Noteshelf.
I love that I can open PDF files. I like it better than using pdf annotation app. (You can only open up to 5 PDF files in lite version)
Also, they have so many note templates and 2012 planners for Free download on their website. I love this because other note apps actually ask to pay for couple stupid note templates! Will have to buy a full version..
