In my very first blog post, I described how Microsoft OneNote 2007 forms the heart of my information management architecture. In that post, I mentioned that an iPhone app is in development. Well, this app is now in beta and you can register for more information at the MobileNoter web site. It looks like the first version of the app will be released at the end of September (not long to wait then). Using this app, you will be able to:
The whole solution consists of 3 parts:
- A web-based sync service, hosted by MobileNoter on their web site
- A small footprint desktop sync application, which syncs changes with the web-based service in near-real time
- The iPhone app, which manually syncs changes with the web-based service.
MobileNoter plan to add a direct wifi-based sync option in a later release. They’re also looking at syncing with cloud-based storage as this becomes more popular (I’m currently experimenting with syncing between my desktop and laptop copies of OneNote through Live Mesh , but more of that in a later post). This latter option is in the very early stages of discussion.
MobileNoter maintain a blog to keep you up-to-date with progress on the beta programme, but you can also find a good account from one of the beta testers (no, sadly I didn’t get invited) here, including some screen shots from the iPhone app.
More on this, as and when I get my hands on the app!
