I'm looking for a software that enables me to manage a large number of notes, short tidbits of information, and to find back later easily the one I'm interested in. I should be possible to add easily and fast a new bit of information, and share it automatically between various computers.
I believe what I need is a note management program that has powerful tag management features. It should allows multiple tags for one item, automatically list all the items that correspond to a tag, show the list of existing tags, autocomplete tag name, have some features to organize tags hierarchically and/or by relation.
I think I'd prefer a webapp solution to a dedicated solution, but adding a note needs to be as lighweight and quick as possible. It sounds like wiki and blog software could be diverted for this use, but it seems to me adding a new element is too heavy, and the tag management feature probably not powerful enough.
So, what would you recommend ?
PS : I should have added :
- I expected the Evernote and Onenote response, but didn't want to orient toward that being the response, and what would be interesting about them is advanced tricks about how to make the tagging workflow most efficient
- I'm mostly interested in a detailed discussion of how the product can be efficiently used for that use case, and how powerful it's tagging feature is. If there's a step where I must create tags one by one before using them, that's a very bad point for me.
- Meanwhile I saw workflowy ( http://blog.workflowy.com/how-we-use-tags ) and it sounds like this could be the answer I'm looking for
