For instance, John Hendy said: ~~ Being able to edit is nice, but that doesn't take advantage of what I really have the phone with me for - I see my phone as mainly a reminder machine, not mainly an editing machine, and would love to see MobileOrg (or some new project) gain the ability to parse every possible agenda feature used in Org files, so that I can actually receive reminders for all the items in my Org-mode agenda. If it came with a better way of simple editing, that would be even better. ~~ Good idea (up to a point, as Marcin pointed out), but writing it here is of limited utility :) There's a chance of some of it being implemented if you take the comment to the mobileorg-android issue tracker. I'm using MobileOrg and enjoying it in general. I find it terribly useful and not especially cumbersome. The initial setup was a bit of a trek for me, because I don't have access to dropbox where I live (mainland China). Ultimately, because of unreliable connections to Ubuntu One, I ended up running my own WebDAV server locally and syncing at home over the WLAN. Otherwise, the only thing I had to adapt in my org/emacs usage was to schedule appointments (C-c C-s) instead of using timestamps for them (C-c .). I'm actually not crazy about that -- I'd rather use timestamps -- but it does work. (Come to think of it, I should propose that as one of the 1.0 issues... or check if it's changed since the last time I tried.) Items with scheduled or deadline timestamps appear in the Android calendar, and there is a preference in MobileOrg to attach reminders automatically. (One remaining point here -- another 1.0 issue -- is that creating a new node in MobileOrg with a schedule or deadline doesn't show up in the phone calendar until after syncing. I'll bring that up on the M/O mailing list.) I find that creating new nodes and minor editing of existing ones is not at all inconvenient. I don't see a big issue for the workflows that Marcin subsequently identified as being critical for this kind of app. They're already there. hjh
