I used to use this app all the time. I still love it, but can't do as much with it because of the limited options on the iOS counterpart to this app. If I were only working on a Mac all day, this would be perfect, but the need to do things on my iPhone and iPad mean that I have to settle for Evernote.

I am writing a further review, after struggling with other apps and realising the power of VP5. I have been a user of yojimbo, eaglefiler and the rest.

This is not just a notepad but will import virtually any file type or image and store it for you, sync it via drop box and auto link it with the wiki.

This app is ahead of the game...it doesn't have the interface of a normal document manager but the wiki capabilities allow you to set up index pages for different areas of info you want to store...
All the things I wish the others had this has...synchronisation via dropbox, encryption, easy indexing and wiki links...whats not to like

It costs $40, NOT $25. Flying Meat has an error on their splash page as well.

This is it, its back and its better. It has an iPad App, It syncs in real time with dropbox (none of this only one app open at a time).

Great Job, I have loved this app and found it useful and had to drop it for a while (see comments further down)

The new app does everything it used to and more, thank you.

There is nothing to compare with!
Ages ago I wished to have this kind of tool to can write an essay correctly interconnected, being the concepts themselves so tightly close together, depending by each other, not only to external concepts and therefore links.
Whatever you want explain, can be a theorem, a theory, a manual, a philosophical vision, needs to be explained nowadays NOT trough a common book but trough a Wiki html document, and, as far as i know, ONLY VoodooPad can do it easily like writing a book with chapters, definitions, notes, bibliography, quotes, each one referring to other ones!
If only anyone (having something to say!) woud know this 'TOOL", his chances to can persuade, explain, be easily understood, quickly and happily, would be by far bigger!!

Recently I asked the question about syncing Voodoo Pad without mobileme and its webdav component.

Then I found a webdav storage system called swiss disk ( http://www.swissdisk.com ) which gives you a 50Mb to start with, I know this is not a lot but my Voodoo pad folder is about 2Mb so it leaves plenty of space. Following this I looked at Mydrive www.mydrive.ch which gives a lot more free space.

Check them out and see what you think.

it doesn't work that wel, I give up and will lok at other note takers. Why knowing iCloud was coming out are developers not up with the game...syncing products is more important than ever with multi site and mutli mac use. I want the same stuff on my iPad, iPhone and mac, yet I am supposed to stay with mobileme til its all sorted out.

I love this software. Since I was in school I have been using it. It stores all my classes notes. I love the wiki style, it makes any linked notes so easy to find. This is very important feature for making notes on class since you always have to link one lesson to others.
Pity that the iPhone version is way too high priced and lack of many features. I will buy it if they make it better in future.

I'm using this app more now that there is an iOS version too. The syncing via MobileMe is effortless. If you get it for this reason, though, keep in mind that the iOS version has far fewer features, including no styled text.

In release 5 the Save PDF to VoodooPad action in the print dialog doesn't seem to do anything - the PDF never makes it to a VooddooPad document. Is there a limitation on the kinds of content that works with this?

There is a problem downloading from developer. I have been trying since version 4.00 came out and made it just once after few days trying. Then counter on macupdate tells the story as does versiontrackers. It looks like developers site is down most of the time. Is this being looked into?:
