NOTE PROGRAMS IN GENERAL: MUCH COP?
im trying to use Evernote a bit, too.
maybe sync it with IFTTT somehow?
anyone got any good uses of IFTTT?
But be careful about saving your work. If you close it down without saving it doesn't give you a pop up reminder to save first. It's supposed to keep it automatically somewhere, but that function doesn't always seem to work.
Quite handy for making brainstorming type notes. I like that it's easy to combine the writing and drawing tools.
Although I've borrowed one off my boss and I can't get that to work :-/
or, google TAKING OVER THE WORLD depending on your persuasion
I hope to fuck it's priced sensibly below the iPad Mini.
It won't be, though. :(
I'm too in love with my Nexus 10 to know anything about it though.
However, I could see about getting it brought in by the rellies...
There are four versions of it though:
Office 2010 is the full version, with full formatting and ability to import Excel sheets into it. Like a full-power Office program rather than a little notes thing, but does 'small stuff' well.
There's the web app that you get on SkyDrive. You can use it through the browser, so it's a cut-down version, but still stacks up well with Evernote etc. Can add pics and links, rich formatting, and it 'syncs' to the 'cloud' automatically. As handy as Evernote, but also comes attached to an email account.
There's the Metro app in Windows 8, which is a bit pants in comparison to the web app. Has a touch-friendly interface with pie menus (radial menus, not lists of pies sadly). But you can't create headings, for some bizarre reason. Bit too stripped-down to be useful, especially since Windows 8 is all about SkyDrive, which is where the web app lives.
There's the Windows Phone 8 version, which syncs with the SkyDrive web app. Haven't used it as I'm not one of the twelve people with a WP8 phone.
Overall, nice program. I have Office 2010 at work, so I can use the full version at my desk, which syncs to SkyDrive. Then, I can use the web app at home (only on Office 2007 there). And because I'm on Windows 8 at home, I can try the Metro version, then instantly regret it. All in all, it offers good syncing with the cloud, good functionality and usability with that edge of disappointment that Microsoft deliver so well.
