Have you tried GoAruna?

I agree with your overall view of the iPad.

About an hour after sending my previous post to the list, I discovered
an app called iAnnotate which allows users to annotate their .pdfs and
export annotated.pdfs that are readable by Adobe Acrobat.  It seems to
have pretty high ratings and isn't too expensive ($9.99), so I may try
it some time.

<<I keep my notes either in a text file on my MobileMe account, or in
a Scrivener or DevonThink file on DropBox. Both DropBox and MobileMe
pretty much sync to the cloud as I work. There may be an iPad app that
has this functionality, but I don't know about it -- anyone on the
list? -- John Laudon>>

Jim,

For an app that lets you annotate PDFs on the iPad, you should look at
iAnnotate (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/iannotate-pdf/id363998953?mt=8).
Jason Jones reviewed the app at ProfHacker:

Best,
Brian
