SplashNotes Outliner (http://www.splashdata.com/splashnotes/) might be one option, as it has a desktop companion. [Disclaimer: I haven’t tried the iOS app.]

SplashNotes seems to have succeeded where Natara Software had failed: they managed to transition from the Palm world into the smartphone world. I have evaluated them back six or so years ago for the Palm+Desktop option.
