One of the features of Microsoft’s mobile office is OneNote on the phone. This application helped me keep notes on a number of things while I was either on the road or not near pen and paper. The information was synced with my laptop nearly every week, just in case.
There is a desktop version of the program but I have not found a way to utilize it other than when I needed to switch to te new phone. It took a little time to figure it all out but after some converting and linking with a cloud service I can return to jotting down notes and even writing short stories from my phone.
Besides, I really need to start doing more creative stuff to keep my brain healthy. 🙂
