    Hello! I'm interested in an app which does the following (rather simple) thing. It would have a place to write down project names, in a list, like a simple to-do app, BUT with a place to write notes, in such a way that I can see the notes for the different projects simultaneously (that's the important part). I'm imagining a list of names, one on top of the other, like folder names in fileview. Just like in file view the names have arrows next to them; when I click each arrow, down pops a few paragraphs of my notes, but I can still see the rest of my projects.

    Does anyone know any app with any features like this? I'm sure it would be very easy to code, but I haven't been able to find anything similar.

    If not, feel free to suggest any organizational/to-do apps.

    Thanks a lot.

    Run Onenote through parallels. I think this is exactly what you want.

    Without omnifocus, I'd get a lot less done, it's pretty versatile, and you can deffo add notes to tasks. It may be a bit more than you're after though? Awesome software though, and can sync to iphone/ipad if that's your bag


    Free trial version, and there's some vids on their site too

    FYI: The Mac equivalent for MS OneNote = Growly Notes, a freebie. Descriptive article, with screenies = http://maketecheasier.com/growly-notes-onenote-for-mac/2011/01/15 . Link to homesite is at bottom of that article.

    Also, +1; Concur with statement re OmniFocus. Immediate and consistently flawless / transparent syncs (whether I'm in the house or out of town) are a true bonus to an already powerhouse app.

    Thanks a lot for all the suggestions! I'm going to try growly notes and see if it suffices. Omnifocus looks neat, if only it were free(r)...
