Re: FoldingText and the PAPER notebook app - does it exist?

I have been noodling with Workflowy (https://workflowy.com) for a little while now and I think it addresses some of the issues. It is a web-based outliner with an iPhone client and it supports tags.

Re: PDF Pen for iPad

I just downloaded 'Remarks' from the IOS App Store. It is done by Readdle, the same people who make PDF Expert. After having messed around with it for a couple of hours I think I'm in love.

Re: Vellum for Mac (previously "TheBoard") - feedback wanted

Just tried Vellum out today. I can see a lot of potential. It's always hard to look at new software and not want a bunch of new features but I'm assuming you're aiming for a more frictionless approach, both from a user standpoint and your own time.
