VoodooPad 5 released today with a raft of new features:


I haven’t tested it yet—- I’m hoping there is some way to do an offline sync with iOS, since I regularly work in areas without internet access, but it sounds like sync is mainly through the internet. I’ll look into it…

(I mainly use ConnectedText via Parallels for personal wiki-ing on my mac, but I’m looking for an option that can sync with a handheld…)

Okay, so it appears that indeed only Dropbox sync is supported (which is great, but a problem for those of us working away from internet access). The FAQ, unfortunately, currently contains contradictory statements—- I guess they’re still getting around to updating it with today’s release.

I haven?t tried Dropbox in a purely-LAN situation, but they do support LAN sync as an optimization.

Thanks, David. I hadn’t known about LAN sync in Dropbox. However, the Dropbox website says:

“Dropbox needs to maintain a connection to the Internet in order to determine when to sync. To take advantage of LAN sync, all computers need to be connected to a LAN and the Internet at the same time. “


So in the remote research location where I’m working, this still isn’t really a solution for syncing with my iPod touch, although it could be part of a solution together with a weak internet signal via 3G.

Thanks again for the idea.

Just for the record: VoodooPad support got back to me and helpfully pointed out that a rudimentary sort of syncing can be achieved via iTunes file sharing. I hadn’t realized this would work for VoodooPad, and it sounds promising.
