What Notes apps sync with Toodledo or Googledocs?

Currently I work on a PC/Mac <=> iPhone/iPad/Blackberry platform using Google (for Email, Calendar, Documents) and Toodledo (for Tasks and Notes) to manage and collaborate over the cloud. I am using Pocket Informant for the handhelds and this gives me calendar and tasks that sync to Toodledo. For notes, however, on the iPhone/iPad, another program is needed.

I am looking for apps that I can use for notes that will (easily) sync with Toodledo and/or Google Docs. So far I have found Notebook (from Appigo) an iPhone-only app, so not optimized for the iPad, but it does work seamlessly. I'd really like an iPad app with a better, more substantial UI and features that would sync this way though.

Have any of you found something else?

Cheers,

I use "Todo for iPad" from a company called Appigio. It syncs with toodledo, looks fantastic and has a lot of features.

Yeah, I have that too, but it's Tasks only, not notes. I use PI for both tasks and calendar. It's a shame because the BB and older PPC versions of PI do have Journal (notes) incorporated.

I had heard a lot about todo - I have used toodledo online for awhile and also used the toodledo app. However I was not impressed with the app and the layout. I adventures out and purchased todo. The interface simples so much more helpful. I am excited. Anybody else had experience with these two apps? Which one do you favor?

Here is my experience so far :)

Favorite Todo apps that works both in iPhone and iPad:

2Do - best interface of any program out there and nice sync with toodledo. Also have bought Things and Toodledo's own ToDo program, but nothing beats 2Do

Favorite small note program that works on both iPhone and iPad:

aNote - Awesome Note - best note program ever. Perfect for shopping lists, small notes, lists and syncs perfectly with Evernote and Google Docs

Favorite program for larger notes, freehand writing and drawing and when I need to take notes at the university:

Underscore Notify - really nice interface, lots of possibilities and syncs perfectly with google docs.
You can buy extra set of brushes.

These 3 are my favorite programs for my iPhone and iPad.
I also use pages (when I need to write huge documents) and numbers (spreadsheets) and DocsToGo (favourite program for reading PDF files)

Thanks for the replies. Unfortunately, none solve my root issue... having calendar, tasks and notes all in one app that has good syncing abilities. As mentioned, PI does calendar and tasks, and is working on notes interface, so I guess I'll just have to wait.

Cheers,

I looked at several apps for this and, in the end, chose Pocket Informant HD.

I read that Pocket Informant was buggy but, in my (admittedly) limited experience, I’ve found no problems at all. It has a very nice user interface that's almost infinitely configurable - a complaint that many Forum members make about the iPad’s native ‘Calendar’ app. So you can choose how tasks, events, projects, appointments are colour coded and there is a wide choice of notifications and alarms - so, for example, you can have different alarm sounds for different categories of notifications.

Pocket Informant ‘sits on top’ of the iPad's native ‘Calendar’ app and (optionally) imports all entries that it finds there. They can be colour coded so they can be distinguished from entries made in Pocket Informant itself.

This is important because many other iPad apps use the native ‘Calendar’ app as the default place to put events, invitations etc. So, for example, if you are invited to a meeting by email and you receive that invitation in the iPad’s native ‘Mail’ app, that app can automatically (and quite cleverly) insert that invitation into the default calendar app. Without that integration between the native app and Pocket Informant, you'd have to enter those invitations all over again.

Pocket Informant has lots of ‘hidden’ features too. One of the reviewers remarked that part of the ‘fun’ of using Pocket Informant was discovering them!! The display is infinitely configurable - day, week, month, year at a time. Tasks, events, overdue tasks, projects, projects in progress etc etc all can be optionally displayed on the main calendar. Projects and tasks can have infinitely nested sub-tasks and projects - these can cleverly be integrated with GPS - so, say you needed to purchase some goods from the hardware store. Put that in a To-Do list and link it to the location of the hardware store using the iPad’s native ‘Maps’ app. Next time you’re driving past the hardware store, up pops the notification (‘Remember to purchase some 2â€x4†timber’).

Repeating events are very flexible too, with the ‘custom’ mode being infinitely (I keep using that word!) configurable. So, meetings that occur on the last Thursday and first Monday of every other month - no problem.

It can sync with external calendars - Google for example - and back-up is cool, it creates a backup file that you can email to yourself for safe keeping. If you lose your iPad or all your data is corrupted, that backup can be imported back into Pocket Informant with a single click.

You can create multiple diaries within Pocket Informant - say ‘Work’, ‘Family’, ‘Golf Club’ etc and have their entries optionally displayed on the main screen or restricted to the display of the individual diary. So it’s easy to check if there’s a clash between the golf tournament and your wife's birthday - and hide it if there is......

If you surf to the developer’s web-site, you can download for free a very comprehensive User Manual that will show you in detail what Pocket Informant can do.

The developers are constantly updating the program - always a good sign in my view.

As I said at the beginning, perhaps I'm not a particularly demanding user, but I’ve had no stability problems at all. I should add the usual disclaimer that I have no contact or other relationship with the developers of Pocket Informant other than being a very satisfied customer.

My first post! I have just got a new ipad3 and I have tried Evernote but had nothing but problems trying to sync. So I have installed anote and it works without problems. Does anyone have experience of using anote on ipad and iPhone? I know syncing can take place via google so if I do this are the notes kept the same and up to date on both devices?
