I suggest you ...

Display "notes" from Google Contacts' notes

This is similar to Joe Aston's request to save Rapportive notes to Google contacts "notes" field. I would also like to SEE notes that I have stored in my Google Contacts "notes" field. It would be great -- and super powerful -- if these two fields could be synced.
Similar to Joe Aston, I use Google Notes field to record the history of conversations / contacts I've had with a particular individual, how I know the individual, personal details about the individual that are easy to forget but important to ask about when interacting with the individual, etc.

        Glad this is under review. I'd like to be able to see the notes I've added about people in their rapportive profiles; as it is, I can't tell where to go to see the notes I've made!

        I'm with John Milner, although I don't really see the value of it being an option. You should be using the GMail database - there is no reason to not (from the users perspective).

        I do use the Rapportive notes, but only for later transposition to Google Notes. I have no expectation that they will be there when I need them. If I truly want that info to be persistent, it goes into GMail notes.

        It's not that Rapportive notes aren't awesome - thay are - awesome and handy. It's simply that I want (better said, require) a unified database, or complexity gets things out of control and I won't abide that. I already have too much complexity.

        Now that you have connected google contracts this is important to me. I've avoided adding note to rapportive contacts since they are not really portable, google contact notes are. Even if its just an option for us to use google contract notes rather than Rapportive (ie, no sync just switch the notes field to google) that would be helpful.
