A couple of ‘organization’ tool announcements for iPad

Following up on our post about ‘getting organized’ – today, Cultured Code, creators of Things announced a version for the iPad.

I guess this is no real surprise, but it is good to hear. Maybe I will indeed force myself to work with Things again.

“Finally, one other arrival that is approaching very quickly is the iPad version of Things. We’ll have more to share with you about it once April 3rd gets closer, so stay tuned. :)”

Interestingly, reading the comments on their page, there’s a clamoring for “cloud syncing” – which makes sense. I would like to be able to have my data on all my devices automatically sync’d and not have to manually make it happen.

Also, the Evernote crew has announced they will be adding iPad support. “Evernote loves tablets. We’ve got a long and storied history with tablets of all kinds. Got an old tablet lying around somewhere? Chances are we either developed technology for it, had applications that ran on it, or both. Usually both.
Remember the awesome Apple Newton? Evernote’s current R&D engineers developed the handwriting recognition technology that made it so notable (and ahead of its time). Remember those Doonesbury strips making fun of the Newton? You know who cried when those came out? We did. Well, not me personally, I was in college and the Newton was at the top of my unattainable gadget drool-list, but the guys sitting next to me right now clutching their Newton prototypes while watching the Apple liveblogs did. I’ve got those Donnesbury strips in my Evernote account now.”

I’m sure there are a bunch more announcements from products I’m not even familiar with yet, but those are two that I have been following so far. More later I’m sure.
