I spend more wasted time making this program work than what it is worth. This evening I have spent 3 hours trying to get the data in this program on my iPhone 4 cleaned up. Duplicate files came out of nowhere, encrypted files that open to discover that not data is there and finally giving up trying to get things to sync properly, I deleted the database on the iPhone with the intent to start from scratch. Not surprising, data from SoHo Notes on my computer will not transfer back to the iPhone. I have put up with a company over the last couple of years that will take two weeks or longer to get back when asking it to address a problem, and on the latest problem with blank encrypted files months ago, they never did get back. Tonight is the last straw. I will no longer use NoteLife and will look to find a more reliable program and software company

Just got a new iPad2. Did a restore from my original iPad - normal procedure. Sync NoteLife. I now have 2 of everything in NoteLife and in Soho Notes! These guys have shown over the years that they really aren't too bright and don't maintain a very high level of quality.
UPDATE: Ok, it appears that Chronos has abandoned their products or is going out of business. I contacted them a week ago and have yet to receive a response. I guess it is time to move to Evernote.
Updating my review
After using the app for a while I experienced the same problems others are having. Syncing sometimes duplicates entries, the desktop app forgets the pairing, and updates of both apps are slow in coming. This could be a great app but Chronos doesn't seem to be able to focus their efforts on it or fixing bugs in SOHO Notes. It's still a better solution than MacJournal mobile, but buggy and in need of an easier to use and better looking interface for constant use.
-1 of my previous stars for the above
-1 additional star for not working natively on the iPad, which is pretty important for a note app
While it's not perfect, this is the first reasonable solution to my problem with note taking apps. I need something that has a desktop app for serious notes, an iPhone app that can sync ALL of the information (images, etc.) and I absolutely need FOLDERS and SUBFOLDERS! I don't know why so many apps "make it easy to find your information through tags and search, without forcing you to use folders". For me (and I realize not everyone) that's like giving me a ladder and "letting" me get into my house through the bathroom window instead of walking through the front door.
My only real suggestions are to make the iPhone sync button on the desktop app be available on the toolbar, and let me drag notes into different folders on the desktop. The clicks it takes to get to sync are a bit annoying, and for those who sync daily or more, that could matter.
Also: I didn't even need video or encrypted notes, but what a nice surprise to find that available! Please keep up the good work and don't ignore this app!
