Thanks for the suggestions. I will start reading about these things your mentioned.
> No databases yet in iOS; no externals at all in fact, although they're

> in one of the "approved" Apple folders, probably Documents. Writing and
> reading from text files is a one-line operation if you use the url
> syntax and is also very easy. Read the file in whenever the user wants
> to see or edit their notes, and put it into a field. Save it back to the
> text file when they're done.
