Pear Note is my go to note taking app. My chief complaint is that the developers are slow to incorporate updates. What I like best is the ability to upload an outline prior to meeting. Then I can mark each speaker then immediately return during editing.

Great concept but lots of bugs

I have been using Pear Note on a weekly basis for a couple of years now. It is a great little program and helps tremendously when you are taking notes at technical meetings where lots of people are talking at once and you need to capture what everyone says. But, in the last few months, I have had nothing but problems with the app crashing during audio playback. I have tried to work with their tech support to resolve the problem but, none of their fixes have resolved the crashes. I think it may be incompatible with the current iOS. I will probably be forced to find a new note taking app because the crashes are just too frequent for the app to be of much use anymore. Very unfortunate.

Hasn't been seriously updated since iOS 4

I'm a little sore about this. The developer seems to think that no serious work needs to be done on this app since it was completed somewhere around iOS 4. It's a niche app, so it's good enough, I guess. I feel like I didn't get the value I was expecting.
