I would love to switch from Evernote to ShoveBox, but I can't see any way that I would be able to sync between multiple computers or access online. Anyone know of hacks to allow that? I should be able to rig it up to put the library itself on Dropbox (haha, ShoveBox on Dropbox), but it is extremely convenient to be able to access notes from other computers. Ideas?

Apple only allows 50 promo codes per version, so I think that would have resulted in a lot of disappointed heisters smile.

Hmmmm.... I didn't use Shovebox before but had way too much software to learn. With the iPhone version on sale I can see new possibilities. Who here uses it? How easy is the sync (like is it automatic or do you have to tell it to sync?). I could see getting rid of some notes and lists apps.....

You just start the app on the iPhone (or iPod Touch) when it's connected to the same WiFi network as your Mac.  Syncing is automatic at that point.  It really is a great system.

I absolutely love this app. Just drag everything and anything in there for sorting out. From a GTD perspective it's awesome. I've been using it for sometime and think it is seriously underrated. I recently bought the iPhone version too which it handy for sorting out tasks on the go.

Go to the main page and click on "Go to my receipt". You can download the apps and get your licenses there. If the licenses haven't been generated yet, be patient, the servers are heavily loaded right now.

If I was helpful, consider signing up for Dropbox on my referral.

Doesn't do anything. No sign in.  Can  put it in tray and has "open" (which doesn't) and "options." Won't let me put in trash because OS thinks it's open. So is there a trick I'm missing, or is it just buggy?

I've actually wanted software like Shovebox for quite some time. I like to scribble down thoughts I have, and I'm used to use Textedit for that purpose. With Shovebox I save 0.5 seconds and also get the files more neatly organized. The other features also look pretty cool, but I haven't explored them so much, yet. Thank you, Macheist, for the nanoBundle.

PS. I also found another great piece of software thanks to my post here. I accidentally erased the first post I had cut out and found iclip lite, which will save me from many gray hairs. So thank you, Macheist for this indirect help. wink

I've been using Evernote, which is great in principle but it seems to have a lot of shortcomings that are driving me crazy.

Just so I'm clear on this; with ShoveBox the sync is only between the Mac and the iPhone, right? If so, that doesn't work for me, as I need to be able to sync between my Mac, my PC laptop, my PC desktop at work, and my iPod Touch that hardly ever seems to find an open WiFi. :-(

my god... i hate wifi syncing so much... seems this aint my kind of app...

wish google would just keep on developing "google notebook"... that way there might be great apps for mac and iphone for it... and id finally have a simple and easy to use way of getting thoughts off of my head without thinking about syncing or anything else and would be able to access it everywhere anytime...

Look at the history. The BUNDLE apps are not repeats of previous bundle apps. Free apps have become bundle apps in later MacHeists if they become popular enough. It looks like the idea is that you are supposed to pay for an app only once.

A great little app.
As an art student I mainly use it to sort inspirational images from the web, but i was wondering if there is any possibility to see thumbnails? Now I end up sorting and exporting everything into evernote, which seems a bit silly.
