Did you know that if you have a Microsoft Windows Mobile smartphone or Pocket PC, you can use OneNote Mobile to take notes on your mobile device (you know the most interesting stuff happens when you are out and about and not chained to your laptop) and then synchronize these notes with a section in the full version of OneNote 2007. Cool, isn’t it?
Some situations when you might want to do this – off the top of my head include:
- You are out smoozing and want to capture business card pictures on your phone and bring them into OneNote, where the text in the images can be searched. This is also useful at the local bar. Need I say more?
- When you’ve been hitting the sauce too much and find that you are experiencing premature memory loss, you may want to take short text notes and voice recording reminders on your phone and they will be synchronized with OneNote
- When it’s time to get out of dodge (maybe you have made a few enemies as a result of the activities mentioned above), you can prepare travel information in OneNote and then transfer it to your mobile device where it will be available to you on the road. (remember that memory loss?)
In case you’re intersted, OneNote Mobile is free when you buy the full version of OneNote 2007.
To install OneNote Mobile on your device, connect it to your computer. Then in OneNote click Tools > Options > OneNote Mobile > Install OneNote Mobile.
Your notes on the device will be synchronized with the “OneNote Mobile Notes” notebook in OneNote 2007 whenever you connect your mobile device to your computer.
