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.

only thing missing for me is scp/sftp -sync to external server but writing a script for it takes about 15 secs or so.......

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:

Nice work! I am trying to sync with Linux Tomboy via Unison. Reading works perfect, but how can I get Conboy write in Tomboy format?

A crack app. Simple and quick. Syncing works well. Only thing it needs is note categories/notebooks.

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'm using GNote on my desktop and Conboy is nearly perfect mobile brother, but I'm missing some synchronization option.

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
