MobileOrg is cool

February 8, 2012 at 4:55 am 4 comments

Recently I began to use mobileOrg to synchronize my org file with
iphone. It works great. Now I can look at my schedule and use Capture in
iphone. The Work flow like this:

For emacs to iphone,

  • Run in emacs:
M-x org-mobile-push

or C-c C-x RET p

This will push org file to a Dropbox folder which share with iphone

  • Click sync button in iphone and thus update the org-file in iphone

For iphone to emacs,

  • Add note in Iphone
  • Run in emacs:
M-x org-mobile-pull

or C-c C-x RET g

Now notes are located in, you can open it and use C-c C-w
to refile to other places.

    I’ve been trying to get it working with WebDav (not really wanting to run random closed binaries on my server). But so far with little success. I can at least browse the current state of the notes on my phone which is useful.

      I have not so far tried WebDav. I use dropbox to do this job. It looks easier to me.

    For those concerned about encryption, Org-Mode can encrypt and decrypt on display so the actual content that lives on dropbox is safely encrypted. MobileOrg has instructions for how to setup encryption.

    I’ve used WebDav on both the iPhone and Android versions of MobleOrg. Works well. Android also supports sync via SSH.
