• Full-featured Note Taking •
Blend typing, photos, to-dos, outlines, and audio recordings together on any page. NoteSuite also lets you rearrange items in lists by dragging bullets and focus on one thing at a time by expanding and shrinking sub-lists.
• Complete To-do Manager •
NoteSuite's to-do manager is remarkably easy to use, yet includes all the features you need to stay organized. Capture to-dos within notes or to-do lists, set reminders for either due dates or start dates, instantly view everything that's due today in one list, create sub-lists for projects, set up repeating to-dos, organize to-dos by tags, and much more.

Save articles, web pages, and PDFs into your notebook right from Safari, Chrome, or Firefox. NoteSuite cleans up page clutter, combines multi-page stories into one article, and saves web pages as searchable notes you can read offline.

Store PDFs, MS Office files, text files, images, and more in your NoteSuite library, or attach them to any note. NoteSuite can search for PDF, Word, PowerPoint, RTF files, and more, in your library.

To-dos needs a bit more work, and need an iPhone app
I have been using this app on my Macs and my iPad for months now. So far, I really like it!! Everything syncs well with iCloud, including PDFs!. Documents display nicely in the open window without the need to launch the app that created them. A few issues that need improvement:
1. I like how to-dos from the various projects are listed in the main to-do tab, so you can access them easily without having to go to the indivisual project you attached them to. The problem is, though, there is currently no way to identify which to-do belong to which project. For example, I have a project A with a to-do list that include “purchase X” and broject B with a to-do list that also include “purchase X”. When I go to the main “to-do” tab I see to items in the list each as “Purchase X”. I like a way to identify similar or closely similar items in the main to-do list can be identified as belonging to a certain project, for example assign a different font color to a project and all of its to do items, or assign a tag to a project and all to-do items for that project get that tag automatically.
2. Need an iPhone app, since all of us carry our iphones everywhere including to meetings, but not our iPads. I learned that the developers are working on it, and I hope it comes out soon.
It’s a good app but
I wish the Mac app was a little more Mac like. Instead it kind of emulates the ios app which doesn’t work so well for navigating and filing documents.
What I would like is for the left column to display folders which you could just drag your documents to. Maybe it would also be good if folders and tags included disclosure triangles that could easily be clicked down so you could see the documents in that folder category or tag.
Crashes, Interface Challenging
The interface seems optimized for iOS and not OSX, with a difficult file structure. Taskbar integration is very nice and Dropbox synchronization is top-notch, that said the application has a serious issue with crashing and will work about 75% of the time especially on “first launch”. Thankfully saving is almost instant and data is rarely lost.
