I have spent a couple of hours combing posts and haven't found a clear answer on either of these. I want a note application and a to-do/task application for my iPhone, and I want to be able to sync those iPhone applications with equivalents on my MBP where they can be edited and modified, and vice versa. I have Entourage and would be willing to use it, but would like to avoid that Microsoft app if possible. If not, so be it. Of course, apps that would sync with iCal would be ideal, but I guess those don't exist. If there are third party apps that need to be on the MBP with iPhone equivalents, that can speak to each other, that would be great. I love this phone but need it to be more functional to justify keeping it. Thanks for any advice in advance.
