    Above is a link a friend gave me, it got me worried

    I'm buying a macbook and getting one for free but am planning on using it as a PDA ( in addition to music etc) to boost my productivity and keep track of dates and stuff. I was just wondering about your experiences using the touch as a PDA replacement and if this calendar thing has been resolved because I really would like to keep track of my events and such.


    Thanks for your help!

    What calendar thing? It has a calendar, and you can add/view events.

    Edit: Unless it's dramatically different from v2.0 software for the iPhone.

    I love it as my PDA I am adding and deleting calendar events all the time on the touch and finding when I get home all three of my macs are up to date via push. No more Palm for me. You will love having the touch as your PDA :)

    As soon as I can figure out how to sync it with Outlook 2007 my Touch will become my PDA of choice.

    I think this was resolved circa November. The iPod Touch now has all of the PDA functions of the iPhone.

    what software do you use to transfer the palm info to an itouch?
    did your calendar and contacts transfer accurately?

    did you find software to substitute for memos? notes? word docs?

    thanks

    1. I was syncing my Treo to ical/addressbook already so there wasn't much to do when I got the iphone. If you were using Palm Desktop, you can export most everything to files that the Apple apps can import. Failing that, you can export to text files and then cut and paste into the equivalent apps.

    2. yes, transferred fine

    3. The 2.0 firmware can display MS office files (xls, doc, ppt). Not sure if the touch has a notes app, but on the iphone the notes app won't sync with the desktop. There are plenty of free iphone/touch apps for notes, but none of them sync yet.

    What I dont understand is why apple doesn't have a simple to-do list app (or even a to-do list in Mail) that syncs with Leopard's system-wide to-do system. It seems like such an obvious feature.
