    Kudos to you & your good work Katie & Dave.

    I don't believe that you mentioned these in the show, but I'd like to add some other benefits to SimpleNote and Circus Ponies Notebook:

    SimpleNote:
    • Can sync to Scrivener
    • The base app is still free.
    • You can share notes with other SimpleNote users. This is extremely helpful for creating a shared knowledge base for your household for things like: shared grocery lists, logs of child feeding for your 3-month old, etc.

    Circus Ponies Notebook:
    • Each notebook (database) is saved as a file which you can save to & synch with Dropbox. I don't think you can sync with the iOS version of the app, but it's very helpful to share notebooks on different workstations.
    • I'd like to reiterate that this app has a LOT of polish. If you're looking for the closest thing you can get to a virtual notebook then you really need to look at this app.
