Noteshelf is a note-taking app for your iPad - or shall I say: a beautiful note-taking app for your iPad. It comes with 17 digital ink pens, 20 note templates, 15 covers, and much much more. It's been making its way around the Mobile Nations back offices and let's just say it's a stylus-selling, device-draining, can't-stop-gushing-about-it in meetings hit.
