        I have used it and it's just lovely. The only things that I didn't like is that it was not supported by my blackberry mobile browser. Luckily when I made a bridge with my playbook I was able to access and create more note on it. But i really like it because I can now take notes and write down personal ideas and easily recover them when I need to. But I use a single file name and just add a date and use the same password so I don't get confused! Very very good one! thank you again!
