[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts - Dear Panda LLC has released CourseNotes 2.1 for iPad, the premiere note taking app for students who want to stay organized and collaborate with classmates, educators and groups. CourseNotes 2.1, in conjunction with the release of iOS 4.2, adds brand new features like calendar integration and over-the-air printing that will give students the ability to stay better organized and reference their notes faster than ever.
Among the many new features added to the new iPad OS, support for printing, multi-tasking and calendar syncing were at the top of many students' wishlists. CourseNotes has taken full advantage of these new offerings by being among the first apps to add support for these features. Students can now print notes, assignments and drawings right from their iPads from within the app.
Calendar syncing gives the students the ability to add TODO notes to their iPad's calendar from within CourseNotes. From there, students can add reminders, alarms and even sync important dates with other apps and devices, keeping students aware of upcoming assignments and deadlines at all times.
