I’m not sure what to think about the new direction for Folding Text… I bought TaskPaper years ago (2008 or 2009 from what I can remember). I LOVE the idea of keeping plain simple todo list & notes in a very portable format with great presentation and powerful query language.
The biggest things I used were ability to tag with a start date, done date, and status. I would have one file per month in a folder named for the year with the misc. stuff I had going on and then one file per bigger project.
Along came the iOS version and life was good.
Well, then the iOS version kind of went away and Folding Text came along. It looked like an outliner + notetaker with MarkDown syntax and the promise that some day it may do everything TaskPaper would do. The only major component missing was an iOS version. I worked around that by using another DropBox-enabled text editor.
Now this FoldingText Atom thing comes along. It stores things in some sort of HTML with its specific syntax? Wha? At what point will this be available on mobile platforms?
I want something cross platform, open and mobile that I can easily edit with other programs. Plain text gave that. MarkDown gave that. Custom HTML - I am not convinced at this point.
For now I am doing the Notebooks app for my notes. It’s MarkDown and works across Mac & iOS. As well as PC.
