Simplenote vs Catch vs Evernote vs Springpad (note sync)??
Anybody up to date with these willing to comment?
Does one have a clear advantage for off-line use?
Some of these have features beyond what I want. I use Dropbox and at times would like something a but more sophisticated to organize what I would have in basic text documents or a way to book mark things.
Another interest might be a way to organize notes and tasks per project that would be independent of the groupware and customers' enterprise apps I use.
I'm told Evernote performance can be poor if your network connection is poor.

I haven't used Simplenote or Catch, but I've used Evernote and Springpad. From my experience, Springpad is better all around. I like the UI and functionality of Springpad better. I've had less issues with Springpad over the long haul. The options are very nice, and the different types of notes that you can take seemed to be superior to the options through Evernote. When I used Evernote, it seemed like I some of my notes wouldn't sync up right, or would flat out disappear, which led me to look for other options.
Both are free, so you could try both and see which works out better for you. For me, Springpad is better implemented and a nicer setup overall.
I don't want anything ad supported and have been trying Catch and Simplenote.
No photo support in Simplenote is something I miss and as I use these I think something that will tag my Dropbox account might be what I really want.
In looking at other apps that use Dropbox I see some export to a folder of Dropbox and others are editors that use the Dropbox folder structure.
