You need to sync text between your iPhone and computer, but you’re not willing to shell out for a MobileMe subscription and you’re not really keen on something like Evernote? No worries: email drafts will do the trick in a pinch.
The AppleBlog’s Mark Crump came up with a simple method for syncing and editing text between his computers and his iPhone using Gmail. The trick: Type up your text as a draft on either the iPhone or in the web interface and ta da! Gmail does the rest by keeping the two synced allowing for fully editable text.
This could be handy for quick on-the-go drafts or to-do lists and could be particularly handy if combined with a Gmail GTD system.
What’s your preferred method of text syncing between your iPhone (or other smartphone) and your computers? How well does it work? Let’s hear about it in the comments.
