There are several apps that are already on the bandwagon with the new resolutions – here are the top 10 picks.

"Since the launch of OneNote for iPhone nearly a year ago, a recurring request from our customers has been for a version that can be used more easily on the iPad's larger screen," Microsoft said in a blog post. "We're happy to announce that today's new release of OneNote for iOS devices includes a version that's tailored for the iPad."
OneNote is Microsoft's note-taking and sharing software. Like other popular note-taking apps, such as Evernote, Awesome Note, and Google Notebook, OneNote Mobile gives users the ability to jot down, amend, and organize their notes on the go.
OneNote notebooks are stored via Microsoft SkyDrive. "Your own cloud-based SkyDrive account lets you easily sync all of your notebooks across all of your devices, so they're always up-to-date and accessible from virtually anywhere—on your iPhone, your iPad, your Web browser, or your computer," Microsoft said today.
