hey guys, i really need an App to help organise my life. i want a cross-platform life organiser that'll store personal notes, to do list, financial information and some way of reminding myself of upcoming important dates. i want to be able to make changes while offline and using an iPod touch also. i have a Mac, Windows, and iPod Touch and i want to be able to make changes on all of them. i don't mind using a different App for photos. could someone share what they use as their cloud solution? is there an article i can look at somewhere that compares different life-organisers other than Wikipedia? here's my current solution: i use 'Notes' from Apple on my Mac and iPod Touch and this has been working decently, but it's not available on Windows. also, i once lost some 'Notes' and i've heard of others having the same issue. i think i lost notes because of the syncing feature. i sync the 'Notes' using iTunes 'Sync' feature and so the 'Notes' aren't stored in the Cloud, they're only stored on the Mac/iPod Touch and so the Mac serves as the central machine. i use OpenOffice by manually copying and pasting over notes from the App 'Notes' to store information(upcoming dates) and then i sync it using Dropbox. so far this has been decent, but it's a bit cumbersome and i wanted to know if there was something that had some more features like an ability to 'remind' me of important dates and deadlines. i basically just need something to replace 'Notes' i guess. can i use 'Reminders' from Apple? be great if Apple offered something. i trust Apple and would MUCH prefer it if i could store this information with Apple, but it doesn't seem like Apple have anything similar to Evernote? does Microsoft have something other than OneNote(which is only available on PC)? can i use Gmail to do this? i just installed 'Google Drive', but since Google gets most of its revenue from advertisements, which obviously scan notes to find relevant ads. i'm more inclined to stay with Apple as Apple gets most of its revenue from hardware sales as opposed to Google's ad revenue. what can someone recommend i look into? i was thinking of using Evernote, but i'm just really leery of leaving my whole life into a company i know nothing about. i keep reading how great Evernote is, but i don't know them at all. placing my personal information etc is giving them a lot of trust when i don't know Evernote at all. then i just read this: http://www.macrumors.com/2013/03/02/evernote-issues-password-reset-after-security-breach/ note to mods: i made a similar thread a long time ago, but my needs have changed a lot since then so i decided to make a new thread. what are my options? thanks, i'd really appreciate any help!
