8 Essential Cloud Services to Sync Your Life
You’re almost to the office and realize you left your presentation on the laptop at home and have no choice but to turn around. You end up 15 minutes late and without coffee for the boss since you entered the task into Outlook but nowhere else. If the above scenarios don’t sound like fun, there are a number of available tools to help sync your life. When you update something on one device, it will automatically change everywhere else. You’ll always have the most current to-do list and web bookmarks, and all your important files will always be in the palm of your hand. Once you get started syncing your life, you’ll wonder how you survived before.
What if you want to review your meeting notes at home and left your legal pad at work? Or you get to the grocery store and know that there were five things to buy, but you can remember only three? Simplenote is a note-taking application that can digitize all these separate lists and sync them across all your devices, so you’ll never be without an important piece of information. Simplenote has clients for every major platform: Android, iOS, Linux, Mac OS X, Windows and Windows Phone 7. There are Simplenote plugins for Microsoft Outlook, Internet browsers and even VIM.
