Not everybody loves virtual keyboards, and their physical counterparts often aren't much better, particularly for taking notes. Quill is a handwriting note-taking app for tablets running Android 3.1 and up. It allows you to export PDFs to Evernote and other productivity apps. For artistic types, Quill's "fountain pen" mode recognizes pen pressure: The more you press, the thicker the line.

According to the app's developer, Quill works best on tablets that can distinguish the active pen (digitizer) from finger touches, and can sense pen pressure. The best hardware devices for Quill include the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, the HTC Flyer (upgraded to Honeycomb), and the HTC Jetstream.
