    I'm constantly using the Notes app on my iPhone and I'd like to have a similar one for my Macbook. I do have Evernote synced between Mac and iPhone but frankly I'm not too fond of it. I really like the simple iPhone notes app and I'd like the same to my macbook. I saw in the preview of the new OS X that they'll be releasing it, but any way I can get it for Lion? Right now?

    I do realize you can sync notes through iCloud, but then the notes get placed in my email. I'd just like to have an app for the computer that I write in, and syncs with the phone. Thanks in advance.

    ...Err, that's exactly what Notes in the Mail application does...

    Anyways, look into Evernote.

    Take a look at SimpleNote on iOS devices / Web which can then sync with nvAlt on the Mac.

    Wait til Mountain Lion comes out. It is supposed to have basically the same notes app that is on IOS.

    from Apples website:
    A feature for your thoughts. Notes in OS X Mountain Lion is designed for whatever’s on your mind. Think it up. Jot it down. Make it even more noteworthy with photos, images, and attachments. You can add, delete, and flip through your notes or do a quick search. Use the Share button to send your notes to friends or colleagues with Mail or Messages. Pin important notes to your desktop so they’re easy to get to. And take them with you everywhere. Notes works with iCloud, so when you create or edit a note on your Mac, it automatically updates on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

    Check out the OSX Mountain Lion preview by going to apple.com and going to the Mac section.

    I hate to be rude, but can people honestly start reading the entire post? I said Ive seen the preview. I know what's coming in the new OS. I'd like it right here, right now

    I did read the entire post, and you were very rude. You still have to wait. If you don't like it, too bad.

    Get the Developer Preview. Then you can have it right here, right now. Else, you'll have to wait until this summer when ML is expected to be released.

    I'd second Notational Velocity or nvALT. There are also options like Nebulous Notes (iOS) that lets you sync with a Dropbox folder and then you can edit them in plain text in TextEdit.

    +1 for Evernote. You can sync between so many different OSs its great! You can also do rich text formatting

    But if you did, then why post something is not going to help? (since the OP already knows about it and is asking for an alternative that he can use now, not when mountain lion is released). You are the one being rude by not paying attention to what is being asked, and then mocking the OP with "...If you don't like it, too bad."

    To the OP: I think evernote is your best choice as of today. It's a shame you are not fond of it.

    Good News

    Hey Shredder, I think this would be much more akin to what you're looking for. It is a simple note taking app that syncs seamlessly from any iOS device to your mac.

    It's not free, though not that expensive. But since the free options are either not here yet (Apple's Notes App) or not to your liking (evernote), I think this will make you smile.

    Use Simplenote on the iPhone which automatically syncs with Dashnote which stays on your Dashboard.
