There’s an article up on LifeHacker about the first year of the iPhone app store. Here’s a statement I heartily agree with:
The little things: We’ll keep saying it until it’s fixed. It’s ridiculous that a phone that can remotely control your computer and work as a WebDAV server can’t be made to monitor a folder full of text notes and sync its own Notes application to it.
I’m still looking for a really good note-taking app that allows you to use it offline, then sync it back to your computer and/or the web. FrontPocket is working well for me, but it still doesn’t allow me to do much offline. Actually, FrontPocket may be the “killer app” that finally convinces me to switch from the iPod Touch to an iPhone, just so I’ll have constant access to my Backpack data.
