I would like to use apps I get from the Apple App Store, but I wouldn’t recommend using Evernote from that store at this time until they get a bug fixed.
The bug I’m referring to is the Save PDF to Evernote function in the Apple Print Menu dialog is not working. It acts like it is saving the document to Evernote, but nothing gets saved.
The one work around I have found is that you need to remove the version of Evernote you downloaded from the App Store and then download and install Evernote from their website. Then reboot your Mac and it works just fine.
Its kinda frustrating and I hope Evernote fixes it quickly.
One note, I am really liking Evernote 5.0. It is definitely worth it.
I have been a user of Vitalist for quite some time and have found it quite useful. I have tried other systems, including RTM, and have kept coming back.
But, it has not changed in quite some time and a promised update for last winter has not materialized. It is quite frustrating when you are a subscriber and it feels that nothing is happening.
Why do I like Vitalist?
Vitalist does a good job at keeping track of the items that I need to do. It does what it is supposed to do and I can really adjust my to do’s based upon my priorities for the day.
It is also a really good capture program. It is great just to email my to and it is captured in the system. Or even better, I just use Jott and it is there.
What my hope is My hope is that Vitalist will continue to develop and I am looking forward to their beta being opened up more and I hope that it is deployed pretty soon. If I am a subscriber I am looking for things to develop and keep moving forward.
Vitalist is a good product, I can’t wait for the new version to come out. But I can’t wait that long.
There is a new app coming to Backpack and I am looking forward to it. They are calling In/Out and provides a way to update your status and keep track of your accomplishments for the day.
This new application was built out of the internal workings of 37Signals and they further expanded it into Backpack where they are testing it. So what is In/Out, I will let Jason Fried explain,
In/Out let everyone set their current status (“Working on the Affiliate Program” or “Preparing for my presentation on Friday”), plus In/Out allowed you to make journal entries for the things you’ve finished (“Updated book proposal” or “Modernized list reordering” or “Deployed Backpack calendar reminders”). People were encouraged to be as specific as they wanted to be.
I think that this is quite promising and a good addition to Backpack. It will provide me an opportunity to keep my status up for my co-workers and let them know what I am doing. I look forward to this deploying soon to Backpack.
I have tried Evernote a couple of times, but because they do not have a way to sync without hauling a USB key around. It was just too hard to try and use at work, at home, or on the road.
Well they now have a version that will allow you to use the web and other devices that you may use to take notes and use. To me, that is a good step in the right direction and I look forward to the upgrade.
