Amount of space a Note summary takes up
The notes summary takes up 9 lines on the screen so you only see 3 or 4 notes. As a result you are doing a lot of scrolling up and down.
If you had 1 line for the notes title and another for Tags then you would see many note on the screen and the tags could show you a quick status of that note.
So instead of 3 or 4 notes per screen you would have 10, maybe 15 notes.
Just a visual thing.
Agreed though I think it is more than a visual aspect. Would make dragging tasks from one note to another easier as well. Particularly useful if you have an "email to note" to help collect all tasks from your inbox or a similar catch all for your task manager like many folks have. Once you open this note up would allow you to allocate the tasks after clarification to the appropriate project notes easier as you would have a broader visual project list to draw upon.
