Thanks for sharing our setup. Sounds like Notesy is a useful app here, but
afraid I can't test it myself since I don't have an i* device. Looking for
similar Android apps myself.
I am planning adding markdown support to zim, so that might make your setup
even more useful. I would be interested to know Notesy deals with the file
layout in the folder - is it compatible with the way zim stores text files
in the folder, or different?
