Any tips?

Use the apps that Apple have already made for it! Notes app on iPhone syncs with Mail app on Mac OS X. Hope this helps?

Free app. Syncs your handheld notes instantly with your desktop app via WiFi & 3G. Works great. I use it to keep my life organized.

Hey, i just read through the reviews on the App store, a few really bad points, for some reason it requires an internet connection to use it, and the updates can be buggy

Also looking for the best notes app. Main concern is Wireless Sync.

MobileMe can't sync notes between Macbook-me.com-iPhone.

Looking for something that could perhaps two-way sync with Google Docs as a workaround?

Any good two way sync over wifi/3g would work for me. Hope we find something that comes recommended!

Or, hope apple finally improves the mobileme/notes with iphone 4.0 os.

Toodledo and Zenbe Lists are both great.

Both have great iPhone apps (I know ToodleDo released an ipad-specific update, not sure of Zenbe) and both sync with websites so that your data is backed up & accessible from anywhere.

ToodleDo is intended as a task manager, but it definitely has a note function that works great too.

This seems to be the story of my life...keeping up with too many notes.

I too yearn for a way to sync notes. I tried every not...and immediately disliked the Internet requirement. Actualy, I would just prefergoogle docs...or any of the apps i have on my igoogle page...which is why I am hoping to exchange this unit for a 3G unit later today.

I am going to keep watching this thread...because even with 3G, i want access to my notes everywhere.

Also, I believe that quite a while ago, Apple finally let its native Notes app sync with MS Outlook, so that's another option.
