    Hi,

    I've been searching for a note taking app that does what I want, but I couldn't really find anything.

    Before you start to suggest Evernote, don't. I don't like it.

    What I need is a simple note taking app without all the fuzz, much like Mac OS X's built in notes (Mail) that syncs to my iPad and iPhone. I should be able to create multiple notes, and I need to attach pictures to the notes (or embed them).

    That's really all I am asking for. The only reason I am not using Mac OS X's own notes app is that the notes have a size limit. As soon as I attach 2-3 pictures, the notes are being truncated on the iPhone and iPad (e.g. I only see part of the note, the rest is missing).

    Any ideas for me?

    Thanks! :)

    Macjournal and Together are pretty good. I use MS Word's "Notebook View" and that's sufficient for me.

    WOW, I just figured out you can scribble too!!

    Ya it's pretty good...the only negative is you can't put the cursor anywhere you want (you have to Indent stuff etc) unlike OneNote, but that's universal with almost all the Mac note-taking apps I've tried. The Notebook view should work out well for most people though!

    Curio for mac does the same thing, but better ;). But these are not the apps he's asking for, have you tried out Things?

    Thanks guys for your suggestions. Please remember it should sync to my iPad, which rules out at least Word and Together (which I actually use and love).

    Things is a to do app (I use that too), can't be used for notes really.

    MacJournal looks nice, but it's overkill for my simple needs.

    Any more suggestions? Keep 'em coming :)
