Nice overview of iThoughtsX ( and iThoughtsHD for iOS). I appreciated the export overview for presentation, markdown and document, since I have only used PDF and OPML to date. They have possibilities. Thanks Don and Allison.

This is an excellent screencast - but it doesn't cover the one area I find really confusing - syncing the Mac and the iPad using DropBox. Any chance you'll be covering that, Allison?

Great job. Also voting for coverage of maps that you want to edit on the Mac and on the iPad.
