I’ve been trying to use my iPad to take notes in meetings over the last couple of month, but I just can’t seem to find a decent application to get it done. I usually find myself resorting to a pen and paper during meetings at banks and other business-like settings.

Today I woke up to a tip in my email box about an application called ActionNotes. I think it might just be the application I’m looking for on my iPad. I haven’t spent a lot of time with it yet, considering I just found out about it, but I thought I’d pass it along anyway.

ActionNotes is broken into two columns. On the left, you’re given space to write point form notes, and on the right, you can create Action Points. Simply put, an Action Point is any note or item that you need to put into action. If you’re responsible for something, you can create an Action Point to keep track of the task. Essentially the Action Point acts as personal ToDo list within each note you’ve taken.

Your notes will be organized by date and section if you take advantage of the multiple color-coded dividers in ActionNotes.

The application also lets you send off emails of meeting notes with the click of a button. It’s simple, and it gets the job done. We’d recommend checking it out.
