Need to keep and edit notes on your iPhone? SyncBook is the better alternative.
SyncBook allows you to keep all your important information perfectly in sync between your iPhone and your Mac, while still being able to edit it on either.

On your Mac, notes are simply text files which you can edit using the editor of your choice. When you're done, just tap the sync button in SyncBook to keep in sync.

Syncing to your Mac requires a WiFi connection and for you to download the free SyncBook Mac app from the support site below (10.5 or later).


- Full text search
- Categorize & label your notes
- A variety of typefaces, text sizes and colors.
- Sort by categories and date or name.
- Landscape viewing and editing

What's New

Now keeps category information when syncing to the old Mac client.

Ratings and Reviews



This app does exactly what it says it will, and does it perfectly: synchronizes text files between my iPhone and my desktop computer over my local network, and lets me search and edit them on my iPhone. For those of us who keep our data out of the clouds, this app seems to be the only alternative to the $40 Documents To Go or the laborious iTunes File Sharing. Thanks, Ross, for keeping it in the iTunes store and keeping your support website online!

I use this app on my iPhone 5S, iOS 8.1. I sync with my MacBook Pro, OS X 10.9.5, and use Notational Velocity or nvAlt to work with the synchronized files.

Great app; sync without the cloud


I've depended on this app for years. Great companion to nvALT. Keeps you notes sync'd without putting your data in the cloud. Would love to see predictive search in a future version.

Does just what it says it will. Your data stays safe on your phone / iPad and stays out of the cloud.
