If you fancy yourself a writer (or an aspiring writer), you’re probably already using the dozens of free apps available, from FreeSaurus to A Novel Idea. We did a bit more searching and found five unique apps that can be used for writing. You can find the collection here.
Handwriting Mail Free HD allows you to “handwrite” on your iPad. Per one user, “I use it for notes and journal entry because i find it easier to write than type. I just export the page as a pic and import that into my journal app with no loss of quality that i can tell.”
EasyBib helps you create bibliographies for your papers. Take a look at the video. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBr8IyUuWoY&w=560&h=315]
