Zoho Notebook Comments

Could be excellent

So far so good - but while it's limited to Android & i-Apps without a browser based option it remains a niche product.

Comment by RasmusScholer
about Zoho Notebook Jun 2011

I don't know how Zoho defines "Real-time collaborative editing", but it certainly isn't the same as what I've come to expect using e.g. GDocs and GWave. In my view, "real-time collaborative editing" means that other users (including your-self if logged in from a separate location) can view the edits made by other users. This is certainly NOT the case with Zoho Notebook. Just open a note in two different browsers and you can see that it is not "real-time collaborative editing".

-1 from me for false advertising.

Comment by simscass
about Zoho Notebook Jun 2011

Zoho Notebook is a a lot like Evernote only a whole lot more flexible and a whole lot less buggy. It doesn't have the same mobile support, so if iPhone apps are what you're looking for, Evernote is probably still your thing. But otherwise if you just want a great notetaking system that will let you put just about anything you want in your notebooks - Zoho's for you.
