For those of you who are serial diarists or are always toting around a notebook in which to scribble all your genius ideas, memories or musings, why not combine your love of writing with your love for your iPhone?
Here are 50 journal and diary apps, all of them as unique as the people who will inevitably use them. And while, yes, there are even more out there — including those designed to keep track of everything from food and exercise to clothing and wine, from travel and books to hunting and fishing — I tried to limit this list to apps that were created under the general concept of recording thoughts and memories.
Now whether that’s through text, photos, videos, audio recordings, music or sketches, well, that’s up to you. And up to which app you choose. Hit the jump now to find the perfect one.
Poor Microsoft. After Apple jumpstarted the PDA craze with the Newton, Microsoft’s Windows Mobile became one of the most used mobile operating systems on PDAs and then smartphones for the first part of the 21st century. Fast forward to 2007, though, and Apple once again got the upper hand with iPhone. Today, iOS is much more popular than Windows Mobile, and even the new Windows Phone 7 has struggled to gain marketshare.
Since Microsoft is primarily a software company (they even makes software for Mac OS X), it’s almost surprising that they’ve never made a mobile version of their popular Microsoft Office suite for competing mobile operating systems. That has now changed, as Microsoft has finally brought OneNote to the iPhone. OneNote is Microsoft’s often-overlooked notetaking app that’s included with Office 2010 for Windows, and now with OneNote for iPhone you can take your notes on the go just like you could with a Windows Phone 7 device. We’re going to take a tour of OneNote’s features and see if it’s time to switch notetaking apps.
