Bug Description

As suggested by ciemon in bug 588159, it would be nice to create a note when running Tomdroid for the first time. This could serve as an introduction and provide first steps to the user. I believe Tomboy does this as well.

Tomdroid's first note

Welcome to Tomdroid!

You have no notes here yet. To get started, set your Synchronization preferences under Settings. There are two synchronization options described below.

Warning: Changing synchronization service will empty your note list.

Tomboy Web
Tomboy Web is what you are looking for if you want to sync to Tomboy-Online, Ubuntu One, your own Snowy server or any server supporting the Tomboy Web REST API.

To use it, set Sync Service to Tomboy Web in preferences then provide a Server URL. Here are some of the public ones:
• Tomboy Online -
• Ubuntu One -

Once set, hit the Sync logo on Tomdroid's top bar to synchronize your notes.

SD Card
Put your Tomboy notes (*.note) on your SD Card under tomdroid/. The notes can be found in ~/.local/share/tomboy/ on Linux. Once the notes are copied, set Sync Service to SD Card in preferences then hit the Sync logo on Tomdroid's top bar.

See for the notes' location on other platforms.

Back to Tomdroid

Quick mentions to tell you that unfortunately Tomdroid can't edit notes for now but this will come. Thanks for your patience.

Also, Tomdroid is always looking for new contributors. If you are interested join the tomdroid-dev team on launchpad:

Lastly, if you encounter any issue, please report it at:
