The Notes app has always been great for jotting down your thoughts. You can make a to-do list or create a table in the Notes app. It also allows you to add a photo, map, or URL to a note and even draw a sketch with your finger. It also has a humanized function that allows you to lock notes to protect personal musings. It's definitely an awesome app.
