Note taking Apps
This app is great for taking notes because you can make tags on your notes, a disadvantage on the normal apple app, Notes.

You can write little post-it reminders.  These reminders are able to pop up on your lock screen.

These app is great for taking handwritten notes, audio notes, and typed notes.

iDo notebook
I personally use this app as a journal, but this app can tag your note as an idea, to do list, shopping list, a diary and a journal. The difference between the journal and notebook is that in order to view the diary you have to enter a password first.

This spring pad allows you to make a note or a task. Also, you can decide which notes you would like to keep private and public with your twitter, facebook and friends on springpad.
