Good iOS apps that help in taking notes?

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everybody,

I'm an engineering student with an avid interest in Maths. I wish to do some kind of research in Maths someday and Really enjoy studying it.

Of late, I have been reading a lot of Maths books on different topics and it's getting hard to keep track of everything I've read. I have been thinking of keeping noted of them for easy reference and revision, as well as keeping track of everything I've read.

I very much prefer electronic notebooks to physical ones. They are easier to maintain, easier to edit, don't get lost or torn over time, don't occupy the physical space of a cupboard and allow easy revision throughout life. I have an iPad and so would like to take advantage of the technology.

I'm looking for a app which would :
1. Allow me to keep separate folders and sub folders. So, I can maintain separate notebooks for separate books and separate chapters within them.
2. Allow integration with pictures so I can write mathematical notation in my MathPad app and then export it as a picture to the notebook,
3. Allow back ups to the cloud so I don't lose my data when I move on to the next iPad.

A visually-pleasing user interface is always appreciated. Any kind of integration with mind maps would also be great. I have an excellent flash cards app already. If there's any way to link the two, it would be great too !

Please tell me if you have any good suggestions !

Thanks a lot for your time and effort !
May you be blessed !

You can try Evernote. Though, I don't know if it provides cloud backup.

Otherwise, you can try OneNote. Since being a college student, I find that it has more features than I require...which is a good thing, I guess. Also, if you have an outlook account, you can store your notes on OneDrive.

Yeah. I did that. Although I downloaded both, I've decided to start using OneNote.

But the app is a bit overwhelming and I don't know where to start and use stuff. Hopefully, it will get better with time.

Thanks for your suggestions !
