Hi Gordon, 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?
