Apple had allowed for Notes to be synced to Google over the air but killed it in one of the latest updates to the OS. This was a great feature. You can still sync up your notes to Google but now you must do it through iTunes. Why must everything for the iPhone go through iTunes?
I wrote a guest post at www.lehsys.com that might help explain. It will be posted on 10/22/2010.
Let’s get back on topic. How can I have my notes with me no matter where I am?
With Google you can download their application and use the Task or Doc service. Task and Doc are not applications on your phone. The Goggle application opens up your web browser to their site. Google does a great job with the web pages.
No, on to Microsoft, I have tried (without have to buy an app) to be able to create or edit a Word or OneNote document online, but can’t. You can view Word, but not OneNote. This is a bad thing for me, as I want to use this service.
So, given what is out in the world, I use GoogleTask for my task list now. To find it when you are on a computer (I know your phone is a computer, but I mean one that is not an iPhone), go to Gmail and click on Tasks under the Contacts link in the upper left hand side.
I hope Microsoft catches up quick.
As for the Notes application on my iPhone, I no longer use it.
