Lists, aren’t they wonderful? Without lists Christmas would be a hell of a lot trickier for me. I use a program called ListPro by Illium on the PC and the handheld. It costs about US$30 and is a gem. You can create a tick list for repetitive boring maintenance jobs or the last few Christmas’ gift purchases. Utilitarian in appearance but a real gem.
But if you want pretty you have to look at EverNote – A single place for all your notes!
Quickly create, organize and find any type of notes on an endless, digital roll of paper. EverNoteÃ‚Â® is a slick FREE note-taking application, designed for users of all Desktops, Laptops and Tablets but NOT handhelds. Bummer. It really is a nice piece of work it just isn’t all that useful to me if it wont talk to the handheld.
So lets move on to the dead tree version. The first time I saw this site all I could think was “what a cool use of origami.
PocketMod: The Free Dead Tree Personal Organizer
Now as a lot of you know I use an electronic organiser. I have for a long time, 2 Psions ( a 3 and a 5… the 5 was and is my all time favourite), a Handspring and Currently an Ipaq 3870 (yeah it’s old but it still works… just). The PocketMod is a new way to keep yourself organized. Lets face it, PDA’s are expensive and cumbersome and have a learning curve (I should know I use to carry two of them), And even I still scribble stuff down in a notebook. From a keep it simple perspective nothing beats a piece of paper.
That is until now. With the PocketMod, you can carry around the days notes, keep them organized in any way you wish, then easily transfer the notes to your PDA, spreadsheet, or planner.
The PocketMod is a small book with guides on each page. These guides or templates, combined with a unique folding style (origami is fun), enable a normal piece of paper to become the ultimate note card. It is hard to describe just how incredibly useful the PocketMod is. It’s best that you just dive in and create one.
There a million others out there and the MAC users are even better looked after than the Windows users for this one.
