The only one note taking application I use :)
Conboy is a note taking application.
It is designed to be easy to use - yet powerful. Conboy can read and write the Tomboy file format to be compatible with Tomboy on Linux, Mac and Windows.
I've been using conboy for about 2 years now and its one of my essential apps. I just updated to the latest version and now it seems twice as fast, very snappy. Nice work!
Excellent app. I've been using for several months now. I'm using the version that sync's with Ubuntu One & Tomboy on Ubuntu - seems perfect for me in both directions (Not sure if this is now fully available or still in 'testing' - anyway, it works for me), Thanks.
@Thomas Maass: I'm not quite sure what your asking. Conboy works directly on the Tomboy format (reading and writing) there is nothing else involved. All notes are stored in /home/user/.conboy. However Conboy shouldn't run while you change anything in that directory.
If you have further questions, please ask them in the forum using this thread: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=833688
Great application. Simple and fast. Number one in usage in my N900. Handles all my notes. Synchronization with ubuntu one works ok. Searching is great.
Very good app, sync works (kind of) with Ubuntu One. I was able to export my n900 notes to the cloud, but when I edited them from my U1 account, and synched from the N900, I couldn't have them changed back on the latter.
Insanely useful. It is really handy how you use the Titles as names of the document and that you can link and jump to other documents by tapping those links.
Excellent Application. I love it and used it reguarly. I even started using it to take notes at meetings. However the Lack of Sync is a HUGE barrier to using this application regularly. I used Tomboy at my Linux box at home and Windows box at work both synced to Ubuntu. If Conboy had a method of syncing to Ubuntu one hence syncing with Tomboy, it would be get another star from me. I think it also needs an UNDO command the ability to categorise notes. But I'm sure you guys are working on that. Keep up the good work. I would love to help with some of this development work but I'm new to the maemo development environment.
I absolutely love conboy! The only thing still missing is synchronisation to a own server. Either webdav or ssh would be a great option. I need to keep my notes in sync with my desktop but I do not want to give my personal data to ubuntu or others... Many thanks for this great application! Stephan
I'd love this software but it has a critical bug that makes it unusable for me. :(
I wonder nobody else has mentioned or reported these, so am I the only one with these?
I have created bug reports out of these.
The contents of notes keeps randomly disappearing, only the title remains. https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8301
Several bullets from the end of the notes keeps randomly disappearing. https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8302
Hopefully these gets fixed. For the time being I must find another note application... :(
@David B: Are you rating the application or the maemo.org Downloads section? Meanwhile this might be interesting: https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6187
Only gets 1 stars from me. From a user point of view when looking at this app here i should see more than what is shown above and below.
There should be basic details of what this is as detailed here:
If there are not proper application descriptions it will be harder to get users to use a store when they have to goto a different website just to find out what an application is.
Eventually people will get sick and not use it anyumore as it does not make sense
Changes since 0.5.8
* New single window user interface * Improved portrait mode * Fullscreen mode on N900 * Automatic rotation to portrait mode is configurable * Automatic linking to various urls (web addresses, email addresses, etc.) * Support for plugins * Many new translations

Like others, I too have tried several such utilities, and this is the one that stayed (I even translated it :-). My one wish is that it could someday sync with (or at least push to) Evernote...
Thanks for the nice feedback - I really like that :)
@Uwe: The upcoming 0.6.x version will provide synchronization with Ubuntu One which is also available for Tomboy. You can test it if you install conboy-unstable. Have a look here: http://zwong.de/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/conboy_sync.ogv http://zwong.de/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/conboy_sync.avi
I really like this application and I'm using it more and more as the only note taking application. It would be great to have the pssibillity to upload the content to a webdav folder to use it together with tomboy on my desktop.
Pure awesomeness. I actually use this one compared to the Notes application that is shipped with the device. Its brilliant formatting options and its speed make this a winner.
Conboy is the place where I keep all my day-by-day notes like travel itineraries and meeting memos.
Looking forward to the version that can sync to Ubuntu One or Midgard!
