How Does NoteSync Work?

NoteSync creates a collection titled 'NoteSync' in your Google Docs account. All notes that you create are synced to this collection. Any documents added to this collection inside Google Docs are added to your NoteSync client. very minute NoteSync syncs your notes to Google . Or you can manually press the sync button to trigger the sync.

Our Story

We love fast, simple, usable software that just works. One day I saw my buddy taking notes using Notational Velocity and was impressed at the speed and simplicity that he could take and search notes. I went to their site to download it, but learned it was only for Mac. So I thought, why not make this available for every platform using Adobe AIR? So we did. Then I thought, why doesn't this sync with Google Docs? So we did that too. You'll be impressed.

Tips, why didn't I think of that?

Sync Notes with Others
Simply find your note in the Google Docs web interface and share that note with your friend. Have your friend drag their note into their NoteSync folder and voila, you can sync your notes together. Works great for grocery lists.

Always on Top
Ever get sick of your note application taking up your entire screen and hiding behind your browser? Not any more. Simply turn on "Always On Top" in settings. Then you can collapse NoteSync by clicking the title bar. Crazy awesome.

Notes on Your Phone
Go pick up NoteSync Android if you haven't already! If you don't have an Android device don't let that stop you. You can still view all your NoteSync notes on your phone via web interface.
