App Giveaway: Noteshelf for iPad

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. Bottom line, a lot of smart people around here think Noteshelf is among the most productive tools they've ever used on iPad, and that's saying a lot.

The most beautiful note taking app ever designed for the iPad. Noteshelf is the handwriting note taker that features super natural digital ink, a stunning UI and a comprehensive toolset that will increase the benefits of owning an iPad by leaps and bounds.
