GoodNotes 4 (iOS — $7.99)

GoodNotes lets you take beautiful handwritten notes and annotate PDF documents. The handwritten notes are searchable and are created using a pioneering vector ink engine. Thanks to iCloud sync, your documents in GoodNotes will synchronize between your iPad and iPhone automatically.

Coda (iOS – $24.99)

Coda for iOS is a text editor, with syntax highlighting, clips, find replace, the works. But it also has a full file manager, allowing you to work with files locally or remotely. It has a cool keyboard with context keys and an amazing super loupe to set your cursor. It manages ‘sites’ so you can quickly get to work, and it’ll even sync those sites. It’ll preview your pages, of course. And we’ve also thrown in a full-featured SSH terminal.

MOSAIC from Steven Soderbergh (iOS — Free)

In MOSAIC, as in life, the path you pick affects your perception of reality. What one viewer may consider a fundamental fact on one path may be an insignificant piece of trivia on another — or may not even be a ’fact’ at all. As its title suggests, MOSAIC isn’t complete until all the pieces are viewed in their proper perspective.
