your note apps...
How many "note/to do" apps do you have? For some reason, I like note/todo apps - "productivity" apps. I have several and have tried tons. Currently I'm using the standard note app, AwesomeNote (its great, just slow to open), and 2Do (can't figure out how I want my to do list). I can't seem to keep all my notes in one place! I also have Docs to go, but its more for documents. I've tried Evernote, but didn't care for it too much. I like note apps that I can organize, and is easy to use and quick to open.
So, what about you? How do you handle your notes & Todo's?

I used to use Awesome Notes.. It's the coolest I've tried so far but I've a big problem with this kind of apps I'm not good in looking at them every day so they become useless for me .
I rather prefer the calendar =) simple as that!
P.S. I don't know if exist something like google task for iPhone.. that would be awesome 'cause you'll receive actual mails every day about the activities you've to perform!

I just downloaded NotifyMe2 and will test it
out. I also have Evernote, but that is more
for permanent notes, important sales receipts
amongst other things.
I wish I would have seen Awesome Note in
the list of apps. I was looking at Featured
and also iOS4 apps that Apple has in iTunes.

I use AwesomeNotes for my Notes. I really like it because it has a Calendar function as well as an Alarm function. It also syncs with Evernote for a backup system.
I have settled on 2Do for my "todos". Very easy to use and is based off of the GTD method if you into that. It also syncs with ToodleDo for a backup system which is nice. I have used Appigo's ToDo that I really liked as well.

I have a ridiculous amount of productivity apps, but they seem to be my favorite apps (Omnifocus, TakeANote, Things, Todo, SaiSuke, iProcrastinate Mobile are just a few.)
As far as Todo/checklist apps go, I like Todo by Appigo. It also has the ability to do Notes as well - Make a title & add the note - Thats how I like to do mine. I don't put dates on them, but it's nice to have that reminder option.

yeah, I, too, have tons of productivity apps. I just can't decide which I want to use. Or maybe I get bored with only one, but then my notes are scattered and not found for days! I think I'm going to check out this iProcrastinate Mobile just for the name. I am the worlds worst procrastinator!!

Check out Lifetopix
I especially like how it lets me tie my tasks together with so many other things I need to manage. It costs so much less than Things or OmniFocus, but does so much more. Plus, it's a universal app so I was able to put it on my iphone, touch, and ipad - it's a steal.

Do any of you "notes apps" users have any opinion on NoteMaster? It appears to be a robust little app which syncs well with GoogleDocs - but it's hard to come to any solid conclusion when you can only use 7 notes (Lite version). Thoughts and opinions welcome.

I think it's Awesome Note that adds it's own folder to Google Docs. From my limited time with NoteMaster, you get to choose which folder on GD you want to sync your notes to. Of course, after that, both apps replicate the folder structure of your notes to GD. It does limit how you might want to sync your notes to GD.
As an aside, I've found that GD doesn't play nice with Awesome Note's ToDo items "format not supported" or some such error. A good enough reason for me not to mix notes and todos in the same app.
Thanks for the feedback Alli.

I could not live without BugMe. I've had that on every device since the Palm days. SO happy to find it on iPhone. It's the fastest way to jot down a little note, like the next word you want to play in Words With Friends, or an url you want to look at later, or IOUs- everything!
I recently got Reminders, which is a to-do app. Love it. I wish you could edit the "actions" but whatever. I use it daily.
I bought Todo List right after I got my phone, but never really got into it.
I like the Notes app for permanent notes, Stickies for "neater" instant notes than BugMe, have Evernote and use it occasionally.

I got BugMe also - it was another attempt at recreating my Palm bliss, rather than trying to find what worked on the iPhone. I realized BugMe doesn't offer anything I don't already have with Evernote. Yea, I really think Evernote is that great.

I was thinking about BugMe when I was setting up a new TV yesterday. It kept telling me all these codes which I had to go run back to my laptop and enter in, to get access to Netflix, Pandora, etc. I realized I use BugMe in place of writing a note on a piece of paper. I _like_ writing with my finger, for just a few words or numbers.
