I've been searching for a lightweight note-taking app for a long time. I tried Google Keep, but the lack of an iOS app frustrated me. Evernote (desktop and the minimal browser version) is too heavy. The iOS native Notes app is ok, but I've never succeeded the sync to desktop. I've tried browser-only note-taking apps like Web App Notes, but I like native desktop stuff.
Enter Matt Webb, currently EIR at Techstars, who aside from having founded the awesome company Berg, introduced me to desktop app Notational Velocity paired with iOS app Simple Notes. And I've been loving the lightweight feel on both apps and the great synchronization between them.
I tip my hat to you Matt.
