Note Taking Software

Question for anyone out there: I’m looking for something that’s like del.icio.us for taking notes, but I don’t want to have to input a hyperlink. Basically, I want to be able to type a note and add a whole mess of tags (which will autofill from my previously used tags) and save it, either locally or to a remote server.

Oh, and if it’s local, it’s got to run on OS X.

Contenders so far: Google Notebook, Tiddlywiki, Notational Velocity… but none of them do the kind of tagging that I want. I’ve also looked at del.irio.us, an open-source clone of its more famous cousin, but I think you’re required to input a URL.

The other option I’ve considered so far is setting up a static Web page to link to every time I post to del.icio.us, just adding different tags and different notes to each bookmark. I would then import the tag clouds onto the static Web page so it would act as a kind of index to the whole operation.

Other suggestions?

  1. What I am looking for is del.icio.us-type tagging, where the interface will auto-fill categories that the user has already created. From experimenting with it, Tiddlywiki doesn’t offer that feature.
