Ratings and Reviews

Extremely powerful and flexible


I have been through many notes applications and usually get quickly frustrated at the lack of formatting options and rigidity of the application. Trunk Notes has been a breath of fresh air as you can take near total control including using your own stylesheet to apply specific formatting so if you don't like the plain white background, font, colours etc you can change them all very easily. Wiki links make linking your pages together very easy, multiple levels of heading and bullet/numbers give incredible flexibility.

You can also get your data out pretty easily by emailing a page, emailing a complete database backup or using the built in web server to alter pages from the comfort of your computer (over wifi). The developer has also been very responsive to a small bug I came across. The only thing I am not that keen on is the icon...

Feature requests


Brilliant, but would like the ability to export notes in an HTML package, so can use as a simple website accessible by others via a web browser.

Even slicker would be FTP sync so can edit locally on the phone and changes are synced with my webserver space and 'published' immediately.
Would also be great if dropbox sync was automatic, eg. on hitting the button to finish a page edit.

I've also found it slow going to use square brackets/pipes etc for link & table creation due to the iPhone keypad. An option to customise the trunk notes shortcut strip to my liking would allow faster input.
EDIT: used the snippets & stylesheet - quick & infinitely customisable, brilliant!!

Finally a function to match all (single) words on a page to a page name (if a match exists) would be cool, so a 'links' section could be dynamically created at the bottom of a page (in the footer) for all matches and wikiwords on the page. Not all my page titles are wikiwords unfortunately, and this would save me putting brackets around single link words manually, and produce a nice list at the bottom of the page that links to previous content and vice versa automatically.

Excellent app, should form part of everybody's iPhone


Trunk Notes fills the need for a notepad, wiki, list maintainer, and countless other functions within one single app. Its interface is easy to use, quick to start up, and powerful. An inbuilt editor allows you to create and edit wiki pages on your iPhone, or via wi-fi a web interface allows you to do the same on your desktop. Seemingly unique among this type of app, Trunk Notes can cope with namespaces as well as page name (allowing you to organise your notes into different groups, e.g. Shopping:List and ToDo:List can coexist.) Trunk is vastly customisable, and secure. With more features planned for future versions, this is an app well worth getting.
