Create and Update Your Notes Via Siri

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 03:00 AM

"Apple's virtual personal assistant, Siri, can do all sorts of wonderful things, including creating and updating Notes right on your iPhone."

It's as simple as telling Siri to "create a new note" or "make a new note." If you add the name of the note at the end of the request, such as "create a new note grocery list" it will then title the note. I haven't tried this out, but supposedly updating the note isn't as easy as creating it. I'm guessing you just say "add grapes to grocery note" or something like that. What are your thoughts, ever tried creating notes or reminders via Siri? If so, any helpful hints?

Remarks for iPad, Take Notes And Work With PDFs

"The latest iPad app from Readdle, a company famous for its excellent productivity apps for iOS, has perfected PDF annotation and note taking on a touchscreen device."

The difference between this one and PDFPen from Smile on my Mac appears to be that this one actually is a note taking program along with a PDF annotater. Oh, and its about four bucks cheaper at $5.99 USD [affiliate link]. I also think that PDFPen is a bit more polished and has a couple of advantages namely it syncs with the desktop version and has iCloud syncing. But if you just want a standalone PDF program and like to take notes on your iPad, this one would work just fine. If you have used either program, tell us your thoughts!

Syncing Via MobileMe Coming to Notes per Steve

"Steve Jobs is at it again - emailing Apple customers with answers to their questions. This one was sent to CultofMac.com by reader Paul Greenberg, who asked Jobs about a missing MobileMe feature that's been bugging him for three years: the inability to sync notes via MobileMe."

Ah well, I'm short in my replies on my iPhone too.

What is Your Note Taking App of Choice?

"The JAiB Brain Trust met last Tuesday at the offices of Googlius Male to discuss the recent rise of note-taking applications on the iPhone platform. Unfortunately, no consensus was reached, as each team member insisted on naming a different note-taking application as their favorite."

Good choices in this group, including Simplenote and Evernote, both of which I've used. I continue to use Evernote for clippings and receipts, things like that, but for most of my note taking I just use the iPhone Notes app that came with the iPhone. I find, for me, that it does everything I need it to do. I have tried various grocery list apps, note taking apps and to do apps (I do continue to use 2Do for this type of note taking to keep me on track), but for the most part, Notes on the iPhone does it for me. What do you use?
