Thanks for reaching out to us. We certainly plan on supporting VoodooPad for a long time to come, and to provide regular updates based on feedback. I'll pass your suggestions for increased portability and content-extractability along to our team and see if we can incorporate them into a future update.
If I understand correctly, Dropbox sync isn't allowed for the purposes of your workplace. Is there another sync system that would better meet your needs?
I think whatever method needs to be platform agnostic. They have changed cloud services 4 times in the last 5 years, and all of them have a custom layer added after the fact to track who is using/editing the files; they are trying to comply with practices that meet legal mandates, security, accountability while still maintaining accessibility and with no extra funding. I’m lucky to be able to use any cloud services. If there is a form of syncing, even if it was only a side channel, that was content-only-ie plain text/html/xml(and optionally images eg/jpg/png), but got synchronized at regular intervals through the cloud client, that would be worthwhile.
For example, the system that works for me is use the specific desktop client provided by the service. On the Mac, the files go in the filesystem folder designated by the service with the help of a filesystem client. On Windows, same. On iOS, the 2 services that work the best work like Dropbox-the files autosave to the DropBox/OwnCloud folder and I guess the cloud app then does the heavy lifting? A little fuzzy on that. Heck, even a WebDav client would do the trick for phone/iPad access-I could point it at my own web site and dump the files there, then let my Mac rsync it to the desktop client. Or even more outrageous, a BitBucket client. <mutters into beard about proprietary formats being the work of the devil ;-) >
Thanks for asking-let me know if I can confuse you any more…
