Evernote, Awesome note etc etc. what have you. But why should I pay to keep track of my thoughts, when I can do it for free on a private WordPress blog? I must have missed something. Thoughts?

(continuously updating)
  • From time to time, when wanting to search my device (iPad), the onscreen keyboard does not pop up.
  • Newsstand – shouldn’t the downloads sync between my iPad and iPhone?
  • installation process of iOS 5 when quite smooth on iPad vs iPhone. I actually thought something was wrong until I picked up my iPhone and saw that it was actually waiting for me…
  • I have had crashes in app store, safari, newsstand, opera, music, Flipboard. This is not good apple!
  • And why am I not allowed to save photos to existing albums – why do I have to create a new one?
  • Downloading video podcasts does not set downloading state – but actually allows me to que multiple downloads of same podcast.
  • Existing notes on phone were not migrated to iCloud once set up. However, one devices with no notes, choosing device as default for notes, is not an option… I guess they want people to use iCloud.
    (i manually moved them to iCloud including the excellent question that Walter recieved:
    Is it true that women age like fine wine?
    My wife age like milk! – Walter via Jeff Dunham )
  • how on earth do I share a calendar from my iPad?? just show some default page…
  • TBA
As a side note, on – i am allowed to mark the same mail unread twice, making the count for unread mail be two, when the only mail I have is the welcome mail to icloud.
And after I read the mail, and chose a different folder, it turned “unread” again. I had to delete it completely to make it stop. Now I have a strange behavior for Notes. I clicked one as “unread” – but “reading” the note, does not update the unread counter on the folder for Notes.
That aside, I like the simple interface and settings menu. This will be a real seller for non-techy people.

iPhone Photos app error

The Photos app in my iPhone running iOS 4.3.3 has issues! From time to time the scoller bar is misplaced – it is not aligned correctly with the top folder. Meaning, I cannot get into my Camera Roll!

I believe the ZumoDrive is the first real alternative to Dropbox. And their iPhone app rules! It also creates a mapped network drive instead of a folder, as Dropbox does. Their pricing is also more friendly – and that is important – at least for me!

My Iomega Home Media NAS made some funny noises the other day. I am getting scared that my only copy of digital music, and my backup of photos needs a new storage place! And how cool wouldn’t it be if this was in the Cloud!

I need 50+GB, so let’s see if ZumoDrive can give Dropbox a challenge.

I caved!
I have no regrets!
Yes – I will have to get a case, as I experience a significant drop in reception reported by my phone, but currently not a showstopper. Or I am not allowing it to be!

But how to kill an app? Ah – it is so simple! Double click the home button to get background apps listed – and simply press the app until it shows starts shaking – and a small “minus” is visible on each app. Kill it by pressing the red minus sign!
