How about a desktop app
How about a desktop app a'la Evernote that syncs automatically with phone and cloud?
i want to use catch across all my devices including computer ! i know ..... you have a web application but my laptop is not always connected to internet when m on road or travelling abroad. so please make a windows version of catch !!!!!
Because you don't have this, I am not making a switch to Catch from Wünderlist...unfortunately. Good bye!
Wish the PC client version faster comes up.. vote it, love it..
On iPhone or iPad, if there is no wireless connection or wifi the notes that are stored locally can be accessed. On a computer, using the Catch web app, there is no local storage, so the notes cannot be accessed. This is a huge shortcoming; enough to prevent me from committing to using Catch. Your model seems to assume people only need their notes from mobile devices. YOU ARE WRONG. THAT IS A FAULTY MODEL. IT CRIPPLES YOUR OTHERWISE OUTSTANDING WORK. DO YOURSELVES AND YOUR CUSTOMERS A FAVOR AND GET OFF YOUR REFUSAL TO PROVIDE A DESKTOP SOLUTION.
We’ll leave this under review, but for now we have no plans to develop a desktop app. Our primary goal is to provide the best mobile idea capture and collaborative tool available.
I second the request for a desktop client. There are many scenarios where leaving an open tab in the browser in order to use a web interface to jot down notes is _not_ the most optimal way of note taking.
A lightweight Catch client that sits in the tray and syncs to my Catch account would be totally awesome -- I would even pay for one (assuming it's not bloated like the Evernote client). Better yet, make it portable.
1. As a professional, the desktop app is really what is missing with catch. Easier to write, easier to see, easier to copy/paste from mail/documents/internet. The website is not so bad, but slow, full of bugs, the editing is difficult :-( And the professional will be the ones who will pay for the app...
2. For me, the revolution offered by iPhone is the idea of application for web services, really more adapted to the objective of the app than an HTML page. This idea should be brought to the desktop machines' world!
It would be great if there is something like a vertical panel in left hand side of the dektop app that contains all the #tags sorted there. So, it is easy to edit items with same tag.
+1 for a desktop app (Mac) - being the best in a mobile space is great but not everyone only works on mobile and/or has an internet connection 24x7. Until then, I will keep throwing money at Evernote.

Ok, but it really bad thing use other software for better touch with my catch mobile notes. So desktop application must be :)

I would like a mac version.
I would love to use this for note taking in class, but a lot of times there isn't wifi in the class rooms. So, Evernote will still take the cake here. Come on, learn from your competitors! And half the people on this thread!
You just killed Evernote and Wunderlist in my devices, the only issue is the desktop app that we would like to have.

A desktop app (Mac!) would make this the ideal note-taking/list-taking app. Until then, Evernote is gonna stay at the top!

Yes, Trimble! Sure. I have singned to receive updates about ths topics on my email, because I have MUCH interest on a desktop client. I just can not understad what causes these guys to enter on a topic about asking a desktop client just to say that they do not need a desktop client. I have to assume this people are under 12 years old and did not learned YET that the world do not turn around their navels.
I want a desktop app because I want to use it on my laptop in an offline environment. Agree with Persio's comment below.
- I want a cure for cancer.
- I don't need it because I don't have cancer.
I wish those who say "I don't need it" could understand how meaningless the above conversation is.

The guys who think that the desktop app is not necessary, please do it: DO NOT INSTAL THE DESKTOP APP.

I don't see what the big deal is really, just add the Google Chrome app/extension and you're pretty good to go. Granted a native application running in a separate memory space that can be pinned in the dock would be smoother, but the chrome app works for now.
For now: More colors for Spaces!
if there is no desktop client, this app will not be of so much value. most people use take notes outdoor and check them when back.......nd note sth with an desktop when they go out ,such as a location, a list, some words from a im client or email...
Hi. I love this system but I do have an Android phone, Windows tablet and Windows desktop. I would love an app for Windows so I can easily use the system on any of my devices. If this isn't possible I will reluctantly have to seek another way of working.
Connecting with the web browser seems me to be enough, so no need to create another app to get the same result.

If this happens, being able to minimize it to the taskbar would be very nice. I like this idea! Catch is just what I've been looking for and this would make it perfect.

I agree to the strategy of no desktop. What laptop or desktop does not have web access? As it is you can jump on any computer and find catch.com. Put progrmer resourc into the mobile platforms which sometimes suffer browser connection, and into consistency of application across Android, iPhone and web platforms.
I love Catch but I am not using it because I miss to work with the notes on my Windows computers.
I guess it should be easier to make your web app available offline like wunderlist does(HTML5). Everyone would be appeased. Please consider this. Offline access on desktop is Catch's last stumbling block.
