View Full Version : Windows Mobile 7, Outlook tasks and OneNote 2010

Has anyone tried the combination above for GTD? I am really interested in the idea of having OneNote at least viewable in a mobile device, and then I am assuming that tasks would still sync as per Outlook and older windows mobile versions. I still havent had the chance to take a good look at the devices, so am after any feedback.

My whole system is in onenote so I was pretty interested in ON2010s web services when they came out. The approach I wanted to take was to use the MS Webapps version of OneNote, which links nicely with OneNote2010. then I could view it on any mobile with internet.
Alas whole online sync service that Microsoft is just poor and I must confess even as a tech lover I couldnt get my head around it (see this link) (http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/reviews/2010/06/windows-live-sync-is-frustratingly-bad-it-could-be-awesome.ars) and gave up.
I also sync my ON across 3 computers, but ON2010 uses a new proprietary format that's not backwards compatible, so to sync it I have to buy 3 new copies of ON2010, which isn't worth it.
For the record, I sync ON2007 across 3 computers using Dropbox. Instead of worrying about ON online access, I just export my Tasklist (the tag list in onenote) and my project list as word documents and put them in Dropbox, which appears on my phone.
If I was really on the road a lot with work I might explore some more, but this suits me for now.
Hi all...just to let everyone know that OneNote2010 is available for th iPhone and it is free. I am combining my task management with Outlook and the "ToDo" app for the iPhone while handling projects with OneNote via the free SkyDrive service offered with a Microsoft Live ID.
