    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.
