I find it good for notetaking and brainstorming on the go. Creating notes, moving notes, color-coding notes and even stacking notes is straightforward, exporting to a RTF file works fine.
But it is a one-way street: You cannot import text or RTF files from a PC or Mac. I.e., you cannot edit notes both on the iPad and the PC/Mac. What I also miss: Splitting notes (yes, I know, I am spoilt by Scrivener).

So: It is not really what I expected. I had hoped Index Cards would be some sort of stripped-down Scrivener for the iPad, which it is not.
Therefore I am still searching for an app that allows me to seamlessly work on files both on the iPad and on my Windows PC. Maybe the combination of Outline+ and Outlook 2010 will be the solution (until Scrivener for iPad is available).
