NoteLedge Ultimate is the brand new version of the NoteLedge series of apps. Compared with the free version I shared last year, the new NoteLedge Ultimate features a sleek, clean look, and calendar integration with local and Google Calendar. It has a full-screen web clipper, brush tools, new file managers and more. NoteLedge Ultimate is a universal app that can users download once and have on both their iPhone and iPad.
In the classroom, NoteLedge Ultimate supports text, images, audio, video, table tools, and freehand drawing. It is an ideal tool for taking notes, organizing mixed media contents, visual thinking, and documentation. This app comes with a set of ten brushes for handwriting, drawing, coloring, highlighting, and drawing shapes. A full screen built-in browser for students and teachers to clip online contents instantly paste to notes. The web clips can also be saved in iPad photo library for other usages. Users can also add notes to their personal iOS or Google Calendar in PDF format and sync and back up notes.
