Combining digital and analog

March 19, 2010

No matter how much we might try to go 100% paper-based or 100% digital for our task and schedule management, it’s unlikely we can achieve either one. You’ll always have information scattered around your hard drive or your email, and you’ll always have some index cards or post it notes laying around with jots and times/dates. Combining analog and digital inboxes is a major obstacle to an efficient system. There are a few apps that try to bridge this gap for you right out of the gate.

Toodledo Booklet Printer

Look familiar? Based on the Pocketmod format (now resurrected as rePocketmod), the Toodledo booklet prints out your tasks in a convenient foldable pocket booklet. If you have a Pro account or higher, you can customize your booklet to meet your specific needs.

Scrybe PaperSync

Another Pocketmod clone. Scrybe got a lot of buzz several years ago, and it seems like the developers just gave up on it. The blog was last updated in 2008. However, one of its most unique features was the ability to print your tasks and calendars into a small and foldable booklet. Scrybe was the first app I came across that seemed to care just as much about your paper-based productivity as your digital task management.

What other suggestions do you have for productivity apps that make it easy to flow back and forth between paper and digital?
