Inkflow is a powerful handwriting, drawing, and note-taking app, loaded with options and features and a picture-perfect tutorial to get you started. From the moment you open the app, you'll know exactly what you can do and have an idea of how to take advantage of some of the tool's more powerful features.

When you open Inkflow for the first time, you'll be greeted with a ten-page tutorial. It's long and very detailed, but it's also loaded with fun tips for how to use the app to its full potential. The most basic functions of this app are handwriting and drawing. You can jot down quick notes on the screen wherever there is white space. The pen is speed sensitive like an ink pen and it looks great. You can also zoom in to write smaller and take up less space -- a great feature for the iPhone's smaller screen. There are also select and move tools, erasing tools, and more, though the majority of the more advanced features are only in the paid version. In terms of interface, everything you need is at your fingertips; it takes only a couple seconds to start using Inkflow and it is very quick and responsive.

If you are looking for a free, easy-to-use note-taking app, consider trying Inkflow. You'll need to pay for the full version to unlock other pen types, colors, and tools, but the free tools work very well and Inkflow is worth a download even if you don't plan to upgrade.
