What notes app does everyone use here?

Is there one that will actually sync with something be it online or with a desktop app? I've tried Evernote but it seems that once i edit my notes on the desktop, i can't edit it with the iphone anymore due to some rich text limitation the software has.

I just hope Apple allows notes to sync from Mail.

No one uses notes here? Or other notes programs?

I use notes all the time! Just wish there was a better, more seamless solution for this. Why doesn't Apple make Notes sync anyway. Its not like its super hard to do.

I use Zenbe Lists because it syncs via web and it's free. It's not really a note application though. It's more for jotting down short things in a list. Good enough for me (groceries, reminders, etc.), but not really a suitable note taking solution. Apple really needs to make iPhone notes sync with Mac notes.

I posted about it here.

There are rumours that 2.1 will allow Notes to be synced with your Mac.

I've been using YouNote until then.

Check out http://evernote.com/ they have a wonderful "Notes" app that does so much more. The basic accounts are free as is the iPhone App. Evernote syncs regular notes, audio notes, pictures as well doing text recognition on images to make them searchable all from your iPhone. It syncs over-the-air with their servers. They also have awesome desktop clients for mac and pc and well as their web interface.

They have yet to add offline notes but it's high up in their todo list.

It will come just because of the competition on the market. Apple will offer notes sync when they're done flattening out bugs and other more important stuff. It's most likely just a matter of their manpower (and they probably can't bee too flexible there because Apple helds everything always so top-secret).

The Question is wether it will come before copy and paste or after or at the same time .
