When the iPad first hit the scene, note takers drooled at the possibilities. A flat slab of digital glass and a little imagination could go a long way with the right app. Well, the iPad has been around for a while now, and it has certainly seen its fair share of note taking apps (check out our fav 4). There has been quite a bit of progress, but note taking on the iPad hasn’t reached perfection just yet. PhatPad is one of the many note apps striving for perfection. It brings some nice features to the digital table with handwriting recognition, map support, and image insertion.

PhatWare aims to bring the note taking experience to the next level with their 1.2 update for PhatPad. Not only does it have a load of great new features, it’s also on sale for $4.99 (was $7.99) in honor of the iPad 2′s release. Document organization has been improved by way of a new filing and sorting system. PhatWare has also put a great emphasis on sharing and syncing with Dropbox support and wifi file exchange. To top it off, there’s a background playback and recording feature for audio clips. Not taking on the iPad just got a little more intuitive.
