    Looking for a Notes application with Dropbox support.
    My requirements are an app that stores the notes locally and supports dropbox for either syncing or backup/restore. I also want an application that is universal or has both iPhone & iPad clients so I can keep them both in sync.

    I have just tried out Plain Text and it works well but wanted to ask around if people had experience of any others since there are few with trials. I have tried Meteor Notes on iPhone which I really like as you can take photo notes as well (not a requirement but a nice to have) but there is no iPad client at the moment.
    I'm not a hard core note taker - just looking for something relatively inexpensive that works like the iPhone Notes app (perhaps a couple of extra bells & whistles) but with Dropbox support.

    Try Notebooks for iPad. Also syncs with Scrivener for desktop writing. Works very well.

    Cheers,

    Thanks, looks nice but overkill for my needs and therefore pricey for the iPad/iPhone combined purchase.

    You can natively sync the Notes app with gmail...which I think is great and use all the time.

    Thanks. Looks interesting but a little pricy for what I need.

    Yes, I have read this but I think you need to set up the connection as imap and it syncs with mail? I'm currently using my mail connection through exchange. Would I have to change this?

    Iwork now syncs with dropbox. You just need to use dropdav. Its either free or cheap, depending on how much dropbox storage you use.

    But I agree with woodhoot, Evernote is a fantastic solution.

    Thanks for the Evernote recommendations however it is overkill for my needs and I am trying to avoid another 'service' if possible. I like the idea of having just a single repository for the files I need.

    How about trying Nebulous? It's USD $1.99 in the app store, which I don't think is a bad price for what it does. Plus, it's listed designed for both the iPhone and iPad (has the "+" sign) and I can testify it works great on the iPad.

    1) You can edit any text file saved in Dropbox (the app will open your Dropbox so you can see all the folders you have in Dropbox). Select a file and start editing it.

    2) You can create a new text and save it to any folder within Dropbox (plus, you can name the text file whatever you wish ... and if you forget the .txt extension, Nebulous will remind you to add it)

    3) You can also e-mail your text notes as either an attachment, inline or as a PDF. You can also print your note.

    4) It auto-saves your work and re-opens to where you were (iOS 4.2 compatible).

    Oh, and there's a free version, if you want to try it out. I don't know what parts of the paid app are restricted (or missing) from the paid app I have ... but at least it'll give you an idea.

    Hope this helps.

    Many thanks for the recommendation, I actually tried the free version of this but wasn't keen in it, it has a lot of features I just don't need. I was looking for something a bit more basic.

    Although we don't have an iPhone client yet, Audiotorium Notes for iPad is worth a look.

    Thanks for your input and suggestion. However, given that this thread is 18 months old, I'm pretty sure the OP has solved his issue.

    With that said, this thread is closed. Thanks for your understanding.
