Info Management app that complements OF Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

Although I have found several threads throughout the forum discussing various apps, they seemed specific to issues.

My goals are to find an app that:
  • works well with OF; available scripts, import export, does not duplicate functionality
  • does not require that I maintain both a file directory structure and a file structure within the app
  • an app that would allow me to import existing directory structure
  • cloud sync and has an app for mac, iphone and ipad
It would be very helpful in making my decision if anyone has feed back on what they are using or specific links to discussions ( not issues).
Thanks in advance
You might want to take a look at a new Swiss cloud app called ''. Each note automatically generates a tiny url that can be dragged onto any item in OF. Click the url and you're into the note. Additionally, complete note sets can be associated with OF at the project, task package, or item level. You can also collaborate with others on any note or note set. Memonic has a free version for iPad and iPhone. Let me know what you think.
With the latest release of 4.2.1, I've decided to just use the native Notes app on my iPhone and iPad. My notes sync perfectly across my devices, and I can sync them to my Notes section in Mail. I don't have the 'Link' feature which allows me to connect a note to a Task in OF, but at least I can have access to all my Notes on any of my devices, which is a good thing.

Right now this is my set up in Notes:
MobileME: Personal Notes and my place to gather my thoughts
@Work: All my Work related notes
Mail: Where I can do richer edits and reviews of my captured notes (i can drag the link from the Note on the desktop to OF and embed it in a Task, so I do get a link, but it requires desktop processing for it to work).

With the recent update of iOS it's all playing rather nicely.

Hope this info helps someone looking for the ideal Note Capturing tool who uses iPhone, iPad and OSX Desktop.
