Great. We share the same goal.

I'm a professional Android Developer from Berlin, Germany and lately
choose to do some fun coding for the Tomdroid project. I've started to
tackle the Sync-UI bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/tomdroid/+bug/549643
to warm up.
Happily me and my girlfriend just had become a family five days ago. So
my spare times are down to zero for the moment. But I do not intent do
drop my efforts entirely.

I would love to see my UI improvements at
https://code.launchpad.net/~trappe/tomdroid/sync-ui (which is a fork of
Benoit's web-sync brach) some day merged back. You could help by
installing my version to your phone and do some bug hunting. Please give
me feedback about how you like it. I just fuddled with the UI and error
handling, so all web-sync stuff is working as before.

If bug #549643 is done, I'd like to start with "Two-way
synchronization" (https://bugs.launchpad.net/tomdroid/+bug/549647). 

I've not checked the current state of "editing" Notes. There seems to be
no code to do this in the web-sync branch and I could not find a bug for
it either. Maybe someone could give us a pointer to find the right
branch. It's good to make sure the code is not diverging too much.

Best regards,
