Threadnote for iPhone
By Bryan Clark
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Threadnote is the only note-taking app that lets you take short, tweet-like notes so you can quickly capture ideas you have, people you meet, and places you explore.
Threadnote understands that you don't have time to organize your thought before you jot it down. Just start typing - use #, @ or your location - and your notes will categorize themselves.
Time to recall an idea? Threadnote knows how to extract relevant notes instantly.
It's a beautiful app that keeps your thoughts private until you're ready to share them. Threadnote can send notes to select recipients through email, text, and many of the other apps you already love.

Handy but flawed
I love the idea of using the inline tags to easily categorize your notes with words within the note, but repeated requests to the developers to add the ability to export notes and remove those tags has been ignored.
The tagging system is useless outside of the app, and including the tag symbols when exporting to other apps is a pain.
Despite this and a few other interface bugs, it's a great idea and a simple clever app.
This app has brought organization to my seemingly illogical life. I've tried mind mapping and all sorts of other apps, but this is the only one that works for me. Beautiful app in its simplicity and power. I wish I could give it more stars, if I could, I'd give it the Milky Way.
Capture ideas using Twitter style # and @, then find them again in a flash with easy but powerful filtering and then search within the filters. Great export. A "deep" app; beneath ease of use lots of power, including custom URL scheme for other apps to send over data.
