If you want to manage your notes from your iPhone, take a look at WikiTouch, a new note taking and personal wiki app for iPhone. WikiTouch can synchronize notes over the Internet between iPhone and computer, so that you can manage your notes wherever you want. As notes are stored on the iPhone, WikiTouch works online or offline, and Internet connection is only required during synchronization. You can also define links between notes, which is a great feature if you want to organize your notes like on any web site. You can also attached photos, audio messages, videos and any document files to your notes, and share your personal content with friends or co-workers.
