Y’alright, so it’s about a week since I got my iPhone and thought it was worthy of doing a post about how my workflow has changed since then. I used to roll with my olde Samsung cell (on the right below) a Moleskine Notebook (that looks decidedly traveled in this image) and a Bic four color pen.
Now with the introduction of my iPhone I can capture all that info I got from cell messages/client phone calls in one device. I remember a thing I have to get done it goes straight into Remember the Milk (no more flipping through pages of the notebook wondering if I missed anything). Get an idea for a shoot BAM it gets fired into Evernote for future reference (it takes images, voice and text input so). Have some time to kill ? I can draft up a Blog post with Simplenote (I get and there it is on my browser). It tracks my spending so I think twice about getting that new photo accessory with Left to Spend and Ace Budget. I could go on but…
There is an app for that.
Going from a super base model cellphone to the iPhone has been a day and night change and I can’t believe I waited this long for it. Silly me. The one thing I will miss of my old system is the raw feeling of capturing an idea. Typing onto a touch screen doesn’t seem the same as writing it down with a pen. I’ll miss my Moleskine but at the same time it looks so much more professional to be pulling out an iPhone than my old ratty notebook, sad, but true.
Thank you to everyone who suggested awesome Apps for me to try out and here’s to many more in the future.
