iPad Note Taking: iPad/iPhone Apps AppGuide Notes are, by definition, snippets of information— more like a fragment than a whole sentence. Note taking apps, then, are apps designed to help you capture thoughts or ideas quickly and easily, not edit or compose long form documents like your favorite text editor or write daily journal entries. There are a large number of apps that could potentially fall under the umbrella of “note-taking”; however, this AppGuide is for apps devoted to text notes, not text editors (e.g., IAWriter, Pages, or DocumentsToGo), handwriting apps (we covered those in a different AppGuide), or apps designed for use with Dropbox (those were also covered in a separate AppGuide). The remaining apps were evaluated based on their connectivity, speed, organizational options, export options, and reliability.

Today we are extremely excited to release our Chrome Store application that enables you to process Google Drive documents via Teamlab Personal. Offprints » Blog Archive » How I’m Using Notational Velocity, Simplenote, and Merlin Mann’s QQ Trick as a Replacement for the GTD Application Things This post does just what its title says, so if terms like GTD, Things, and Notational Velocity mean nothing to you, you may want to move along: there’s nothing to see here but an excruciating display of plain-text nerdiness. But if you are looking for a way to implement the Getting Things Done approach to task-management on your computer without spending much (or any) money, if you are a devoted user of Things by Cultured Code who has begun to toy with alternatives that support cloud synchronization, and/or if you secretly thrill to posts like this one, read on. I started using Things at the same time I was introduced to GTD, in the Spring of 2008. I got hooked on Things when it was still in free beta. When version 1.0 appeared and quickly began winning awards, I gladly shelled out the asking price. Even today, I still think Things is a great program.

Stickies stores information in a single text-based ini file. App Gems: Honorable mentions It isn’t that hard to come up with a list of App Gems winners. The difficult part is keeping that list down to a manageable length. When Macworld editors first meet to discuss our awards for great iOS apps, the number of nominees runs in the triple digits. From there, we whittle down the names to just a handful of winners. The following apps just barely missed the cut—but they still deserve your attention if you’re on the lookout for outstanding apps for your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
