I have an iPhone and quite like it for music and the phone itself (and for Grocery Zen), but I hate hate hate it for making notes to myself, something I do very often. The lack of cut and paste and any advanced note taking software is terrible.
A friend has offered me a new BB for $80 (she won it but already has one). However, I've never touched a Blackberry before and wonder if its better suited to my purposes.
I use my phone for (in this order):
- note taking
- phone / texting
- grocery zen (shopping list / recipe software)
- alarm clock
I do not browse the web on a phone or check my email (something previous askme questions about this topic have been concerned about). I do not use maps or look at youtube or watch videos. In fact, my preferences is to have my provider disable internet features on my iPhone.
So, would the BB be better for what I do?
Also, how do they synch with Macs regarding my contact list and music/cover art? Are playlists exported? Is it painless or painful? How are they for listening to music (is there forward/back/volume on the headphone, etc)?
Are there third party apps for things like shopping lists and recipes?
I'm on Fido in Toronto if that makes a difference.
