Type, handwrite, draw, record audio, and arrange photos together on any page. Manage to-dos with a full-featured to-do manager. Annotate PDFs, or read and search MS Office files. Save articles, web pages, and PDFs from the Internet. Find your notes and documents instantly with lightning-fast search. And, organize your notebook the way you like -- with either tags or folders.
• Any Kind of Notes •
Capture almost any kind of information or idea on any page. Type with different fonts, draw with beautiful ink, shrink handwriting to fit on pages, take photos, make lists, create to-dos, and record audio. NoteSuite even links drawings and photos to nearby text, so they stay together while you edit your text.
• Complete To-do Manager •
NoteSuite makes it easy to organize everything you need to do. Capture to-dos within notes or to-do lists -- NoteSuite can show you a master list of all your to-dos, just those that need your attention today, or only to-dos associated with a particular tag or project. NoteSuite also lets you set reminders for both due dates and start dates, create sub-lists for projects, set up repeating to-dos, and much more.
• Annotate Almost Anything •
Highlight, mark up, and sign almost anything in your notebook. Annotate PDFs, photos, and web clips directly, and convert MS Office and iWork files to PDF documents safely offline so they can be annotated. Type, draw, highlight, strike-through, add comment balloons, create bookmarks, and more.
• Easy Web Clipping •
Clip articles, web pages, and PDFs to your notebook from your web browser. NoteSuite cleans up page clutter, combines multiple web pages into one article, and saves web pages as searchable notes you can read offline.
• Download and Search Documents •
Email documents to your notebook, or download them from Dropbox, Google Drive, or Box. NoteSuite can also search for text inside PDF, MS Word, PowerPoint, RTF files, and more.
• Flexible Organization •
Organize anything by folders or tags. Find almost anything with global search that instantly finds text within notes, PDFs, MS Office files, to-do lists, and more.
• Sync with Mac •
Just tap one button, and NoteSuite will sync everything in your notebook across devices automatically from that point forward. Because NoteSuite uses iCloud, you don't have to give up any private information or remember new passwords.

Best All-in-One Note app I've used so far
The title says it all, really. I've used Evernote, but can't bring myself to pay a subscription just so I can access my notes offline. NoteSuite gives me everything I need, access on all my iOS and OS X devices and pretty nearly seamless sync. I've used other text editors with Dropbox sync for note taking, and while they're nice, NoteSuite gives me formatted text, To-Dos straight from notes (great for work), the ability to handwrite notes (haven't used this feature, yet) and record audio (again, haven't used this, yet). While the app isn't universal (would really like that iPhone version), and you do pay for the iOS & OS X version separately, it's still much much less expensive than Evernote and some other apps. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the lack of an iPhone client and the fact that the window buttons (close, minimize, maximize) on the OS X version don't conform to my settings (Graphite instead of Blue). So, I have the stoplight color scheme on the NoteSuite app window while the rest of my apps are graphite. Otherwise, great app, keep up the good work, and thank you to the developer for keeping the pricing nice and low across platforms.
It just keeps getting better and better!
I had to try the sync in the app to get my notes off of my messed up 4 gen iPad, when I loaded iOS 8, and my Air once I had it also on iOS 8.x. it worked like charm once I used the same loging for iCloud on my devices. And basically, YES, what everybody else has said too!
I feel bad having used this app for the better part of a year now and I've never written a review for it. I bought it even though it had several negative reviews...but since they were closer to being 'rants', I ignored them and bought it anyway and I've never looked back. This is the closest to what an app like this would do if I was designing it for myself! ...and I AM picky!
It very quickly became my main go-to app and it will be hard for another developer to top it any time soon.
I use it in my work to organize all kinds of diverse data and pieces of information as I remotely support hospital laboratory computer systems and their integration with other systems. In my personal affairs it is the filing cabinet of everything, web articles, web pages images, browsing the web from within it. Nice!
I rarely contact support for an app, but had the occasion to ask for help with an issue I had with this app. They responded the next business day (they are not available 24/7). They clearly understood my problem and provided a suggested solution. I corresponded three more times with questions and each time they replied promptly, courteously and with an easy to understand (and correct) answer.
For years, I used another Mac only Notebook app, but was hesitant to purchase the iPad version due to price and poor reviews. So I gave NoteSuite a try and it meets all of my needs perfectly. I would highly recommend this app for anyone who wants to put all their notes, etc. in one place and synced between devices.
