The default Mac notes app can't be made to sync with ... I've started building one that will!

Just updated my Mac client for the Bookmarks app to v 1.1.2 - it now has the ability to export a bookmarks.html file.

I bought both anf on the Mac when they were first released, but I never really used them as I tend to rely on . But just recently I have started using them a lot and I have to say they are both really good!
