    Organization/Productivity Apps and Software

    All this discussion of Tablets and Iphones etc got me thinking of how much I rely on my phone and tablet now for day to day use but don't use the full power of them to keep me organized.

    During certain times of the year I have a ton of things going on between family, farm, and work and while the calendar makes sure I get there I am finding that i am doing a horrible job of keeping myself organized and remembering some important things. I am also doing a horrible job of keeping my notes organized so I can find them in the future.

    I have looked into Evernote and Onenote and not sure which direction to head down. What's everyone's experience with either of these and how do you use them or are there other options that I'm not even considering.

    As stated in another thread my current set up is this, Android phone, Android tablet, and PC. Wanting something that will work and share across all 3 like Evernote and Onenote will.

    So you need reminders to wait by the mailbox for the government check?

    This is my specialty.

    The right app is def going to be the one that works for you. Lame but I've found the most success with hybrid of stuff.

    Right now I've had the most success using David Allens's Getting things Done system. Good deal of apps based on system.

    I use doit.Im across web and iPhone. Better if utilized based on GTD but essentially you "capture" all to-dos in inbox and then process by either doing or filing in a set of folders. Sunday I take an hour and empty the brain of anything that I need to do or work on or dream of doing one day.

    Other apps I've used (my experience with iOS unless noted.

    Basecamp - web - project organization and great team collaboration

    Producteev - Web/Mobile - To do and collaboration

    Wunderlist - mobile - simple to do - too simple for me

    Things - Mac - heard good things but UI interface a little odd

    Remember the Milk - fan favorite

    You need to get Kinze working on this app to go with their tractor/combine drones and think of the time you will save.
