Dropbox + OneNote = Awesome

While I think Windows 7 is a complete blunder from top to bottom, products like Microsoft OneNote show that Microsoft is capable of writing great apps when they put their minds to it. About two years ago I finally gave OneNote 2003 a try as a way to organize notes and write down all those ideas, links and projects I needed to keep track of. I was using Notepad++ with dozens of tabs open. It was working pretty well, but OneNote came in and just made everything so much easier.

OneNote 2003 is great and OneNote 2007 is amazingly better. I use 2007 everyday at work and am a huge fan. I even write all my blog posts in it now. I can’t remember the last time I used Word.

Dropbox is also an awesome sync tool which lets me sync files across the web and across multiple machines without even thinking. Just drop a file in there and now I have access to it no matter where I log in.

And now I’ve combined the power of these two apps by storing my OneNote Notebook inside of Dropbox. I create reminders for myself, jot down notes, links to articles, solutions to computer problems, and even article ideas and can work on them wherever I am. It’s an incredibly useful and simple way to transfer ideas and projects around.

What’s funny, I can put files in Dropbox and use the Linux client to grab them and transfer files between Operating Systems. It’s faster than trying to use a thumbdrive.

If you do a lot of writing or need to keep track of ideas, OneNote is the way to go. If you’re working on multiple machines you need Dropbox. When you put the two of them together you can work on your projects no matter where you are. Fantastic!
