Question about iPad & a stylus pen

My daughter is thinking about getting an iPad to use for school for note taking. She is wondering what would be the best stylus to use for this and how it works.

Is there a program that is equivalent to Power Point that can be downloaded to the iPad? Also, can a program like Pages be downloaded to the iPad?

She has a MacBook Pro & usually types her notes on this during class but is considering switching to the iPad for note taking.

TIA!

Pages is available for iPad. One Note is similar to Power Point. Also, with Notability she can create different subjects and take notes. As for a stylus, any one from an office supply store will work. I got them at Staples. My DS14 uses his iPad for note taking at school.

I have this stylus for my ipad and can't live without it....

Not sure if link works but it's called Accessorise Slim Capacitive Stylus


If she's taking a lot of notes though you'd probably want to get a keyboard, either the Apple one or a case that has a keyboard built into it.

That reminds me, DS14 uses the Apple wireless keyboard, too.

She'd like to be able to write freely on the Power Point document. (this is what she's explaining to me in an "oh so happy tone" right now!)

Anyway, that's why she'd prefer the stylus for the iPad instead of a keyboard.

Would that work?

Sadly, I had to ask my 9 year old this question, but it will not work in One Note right now.

I don't know the PP answer but the stylus I recommended is better than the cheap ones because it glides smoothly for writing. I think there are some notations in the reader reviews or description that mentions the writing aspect.

Thanks.

Anyone use Keynote (which is equivalent to Power Pointe but for a Mac) & use the stylus to write on those documents through the iPad.
