I’ve found David Hewson’s blog to often contain interesting and insightful views on writing and note taking. His most recent posting compares several note taking apps, and I thought this might be of interest to this group:

Interesting - thanks Steve. (In my opinion David Hewson’s blog is one well worth following with a lot of useful stuff, especially for readers of this forum, and I enjoy his books - though I personally have yet quite to understand the logic of the apparently-intended writer-reader combined readership of the blog.)

Hi David,

I have been adopting the use of Notebooks App (http://www.notebooksapp.com/) more and more lately. The approach is similar to NoteSuite, organizing notes in folders and sharing it in dropbox. There are versions for iOS, Mac and Windows.

Very nice article, indeed. My opinion of all the apps you comment is similar as yours

My guess is he’s supposed to use his blog to promote his books, but he is a CRIMPer at heart and can’t resist trying out and then writing about all the cool tools available.

Tried Notebooks App - tremendous disappointment. It’s a memory hog, seems laggy and buggy, and crashed after just a few minutes (on Windows 7). There seems no way to export notes to plain text or HTML or RTF, at least not directly, and worst of all, it doesn’t let me rearrange notes up or down. Looks nice, though! And maybe the Mac/iP* versions are better.
