    If you are just looking for something for notes/to do lists, check out momo. It has a web interface so you can add notes that are synced to the ipod/iphone. I have been using that along with the built in mail and calendar apps.

    Personally, I use the mail and iCal apps on my MacBook, with mail syncing to exchange. iCal uses BusySync to sync up to Google Calendar, which then syncs down to Pocket Informant on my iPhone. For todos, I use Toodledo, which also syncs down to Pocket Informant on the iPhone. PI is a great app on the iPhone, and the development is second to none. Just take a look at the forums to see how much work they put into it.

    For notes, I currently just use the native iPhone notes app which will sync with notes on my mac in iPhone OS3.0, which I'm hoping will be sufficient for my needs.

    For docs longer than a standard note, I use QuickOffice which allows me to view and edit docs and spreadsheets on my iDisk, but this could well change when Documents To Go gets released by Dataviz, supposedly in the ext few weeks.

    Pocket Informant has been pretty good so far. It still has some rough edges, but it's still fairly new to the iPhone. It has Todos and Events, and I read it'll also have a notes feature that will sync to Toodledo notes.

    ToDo by Appigo will sync its todo's with ical now. If you need alarms on the todo's then you can subscribe to a service like Remember the Milk and it will text and/or email you an alarm for the to do at the appropriate time. You can also subscribe to Google Calendars and set up push in your iPhone and when you enter an event on your iPhone it will automatically be pushed to Google and then synced with ical, all without tethering the iPhone and manually syncing. This is a pretty powerful setup. ToDo now includes projects and subtasks and checklists. Appigo also makes a notes app that will integrate with ToDo and sync. I don't use it as the notes section in ToDo is sufficient for my needs.

    Somebody mentioned spreadsheet docs and the best two out for the iPhone are Marinercalc and Spreadsheet.

    For notes, Momo and Notebook (by Appigo) are both great. I like Appigo's interface better, but I prefer to keep some notes completely locked and out of view, and currently it's easier to do that with Momo. If Appigo creates hidden folders that only appear when the password is entered, I'll move to Notebook.

    Pocket Informant and SmartTime both sync to Google calendar, and SmartTime's recent update makes it a lot more usable for me (monthview calendar). SmartTime's graphics are nicer to look at, but I still find Pocket Informant's interface much easier to see and do things more quickly. Pocket Informant's updates and developer-customer communication are both among the best I've seen. I do look forward to seeing how SmartTime develops though.

    I have used various to-do apps and I always seem to fall back to stickies. I don’t know why but they are more convenient.

    Another vote for Appigo's ToDo. The syncing to Toodledo (free) is phenomenal and the app itself is a jewel. They have fantastic customer service and are always adding feature requests when they can. It's a great app that I highly recommend, and if you're worried about spending $9.99 on an app just try out their demo, ToDo Lite.
