Remember the Milk (RTM) came out with a long overdue iPhone update today! And it is really nice. I recommend that if you haven’t signed up for RTM, you should right now! It is the best online and mobile To Do List and Task Manager out there…
Today I was sorting through some past articles to share on Twitter and came across my review of the recently developed ToDo.txt. back in Feb 2011. I wanted to see if the project was still running and whether my links were working, and lo and behold there is a fresh update! It looks like only a couple of days ago they released the iOS version!
I’ve been trying to get in better running shape at the same time as try to maintain the
fitness I had during the earlier part of the year when I had way more time to mountain bike ride.
With my toddler becoming more active, and destroying our house on a daily basis, by the time my work day is done, I try to get home as soon as possible to relieve my wife. It has really effected my fitness levels.
One thing I’ve never used is my iPhone to help me get fit. I have typically used it to play good music while I ride or run. But, smartphones nowadays can be so much more… I follow someone on Twitter that uses Strands Fitness on his phone to track his routes and progress.
So, I ask you, my three readers, what mobile apps do you use to track your fitness progress?
I am a sucker for new ‘free’ software updates. My iPhone is no exception. I normally update my software, whether it’s on my Linux laptop or my phone on a fairly regular basis.
I jailbroke my iPhone a while ago but it was feeling a bit sluggish, and I wasn’t really using much of the features or applications to justify holding off on this update.
The only hiccup I had was that because of the jailbreak, iTunes couldn’t just do an upgrade from iOS4 to iOS5. It had to reset my phone back to factory settings first. And as such my music on the phone was wiped off.
I’m going to spend the rest of the evening getting my music back on the phone for my ride tomorrow night.
I have been thinking about my information workflow recently, and more specifically have started to examine what works best to control the flow of data that comes my way throughout my work day, and make sure I record it.
I have two parallel information systems running in my life. The first is my Remember the Milk GTDish system where I document all the important stuff I need to recall later on. Birthdays, appointments, grocery lists, multi-step projects like mortgage applications. Anything that isn’t done on the fly or during the day, gets dated, context added, etc…I use RTM for pretty much everything I need to do or remember in my personal life. I also flag future reminders(tickler list) and my Waiting-For list for both work and pleasure. But not everything seems to go in there… Continue reading “My Moleskine – Remember the Milk System. Old vs New.”
