Evernote is one of the most popular digital notebooks services, and it has been very popular with iOS users for some time now. There have been many complaints (mostly plain text fanatics) about Evernote’s export ability if you choose to leave the service, but I feel that Evernote is better fit as a digital archive rather than an ongoing list of notes. What has brought people to using Evernote in the past is how easy it is to save info from the web for reference and items to remember later. Have a great meal? Save the image into Evernote along with the recipe for when you would like to cook it.

While features are not touted as the main new items in the new Evernote, the redesign is. The old Evernote seemed to suffer from an identity crisis. On iOS, the app was not uniform and looked completely different when using the iPad and iPhone. With the new redesign, the app and service has become more uniform and looks consistent, with extra features on the iPad due to screen real estate. Let’s take a closer look after the jump.  (more…)

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?

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.
