Too clunky for writing and forced to learn Markdown


I was hoping this would be a simple notebook for creative writing. Unlike a school or business notebook where projects are typically linear, creative writing is all over the place. It’s tough to keep track hard of all the snippets of conversation and plot twists that jump into your head in the middle of the night or while cooking spaghetti. I wanted a place to jot ideas and quickly find/ move/organize later. I thought I’d be able to set up search words, for example and the app would group them together. So, by touching a word in my list of pre defined words, I see all Pages containing that word. A page containing both #magic and #dialogue would of course be in both groups.

This is not that. Trunk notes requires a markdown and brackets and a whole lot of other formatting but I guess it’s useful if you’re trying to create your website but I spend more time formatting in writing. There must be an app with the features I described above but that description is too long for a search engine and I don’t know the buzz word for it. (Hashtag search)?

Nothing better.


This is what I've been looking for since iphone 1. Powerful, simple, flexible, I'm using it as a personal wiki for music related content as I learn more about music. It's wiki-like structure makes me feel like im contributing to my own personally crafted and ebess "music Wikipedia" which I can refer to anywhere, can access anywhere, and capture anything. It's like Evernote but without selling your soul and content to a company who's primary goal is to lock your content on an island, packed with your content, yet impossible to escape.

This is the first new app I've added to my home screen in 2 years. For those home screen obsessed power users - that's a big deal. It's that good.

In my top three of must have apps


There are a handful of apps that I can't live without and this is one of them. In fact, this is the lone app that keeps me on iOS.

I keep everything in trunk notes. I tried Evernote, but I hate having my data in the cloud. I love that my data is local, yet synchs between my devices with Dropbox.

I wish apple would make this app one of the app of the week apps so everyone could find out how awesome it is.
