You can tell that Mac users are representative of the information age based on the number of applications we have that take notes. They’re not a dime a dozen, but I’m sure I can find a dozen free notes apps. The good ones, though, cost a few dollars. If taking notes and keeping them synced between Mac, iPhone, or iPad is your game, Notefile wants to play.
There’s usually not much to a notes taking app. TextEdit on your Mac does a good job and it’s free, but there’s not corresponding app for iPhone or iPad, unless you consider the actual Notes app, which is bare bones at best.
Notefile steps above others because it resides in the Mac’s Menubar, creates an elegant list of notes you’ve taken, easily navigated through by using the keyboard. Notes can be shared in Notefile, synced to Mac, iPhone or iPad versions, too.
Taking notes is a bit like using a very mini word processor. It’s good for lists, too. Sharing is handled from the Notefile File menu in the Menubar.
The iPhone and iPad version of Notefile have a similar look and feel to the Mac version, which also has a complementary Dashboard Widget option.
Notefile uses iCloud to sync notes files between iDevices, but there’s an option to use the JuneCloud site to sync files, which can then be edited online. This app works well, has a low learning curve, synchronizes between devices, and is priced right. It’s also made by the same developer of the popular Delivery Status delivery tracking Dashboard Widget.
