Default Document or List

Please Login to Remove!

I have a curve 8330.
Right now I am using Google Documents on my PC(Windows XP) to make my shopping list etc on my BB
I am looking for something that I can still use on my computer but can add or remove things for the list With my BB when I'm not home.
To me it doesn't sound too complicated but does this exist?
Thanks.
Rita

How about just using the regular notepad? You can edit it through Outlook when you're home, otherwise edit it on your device when you're away.

Not an answer to your question, but the MaraTick application is pretty good, and freeware. Search. Not sure it's still downloadable, but you'll find the thread, and then the links. Maybe the links are still good. Don't know.

I have Outlook Express.
Getting a new computer and thinking of going with Office so I could have Outlook. I have a feeling it might things easier for my BB. I now have to use Google calendar and don't like it at all. Can someone tell me if Outlook would be more compatable with my curve. Thanks.

It might be MaraTic instead of MaraTick.

Outlook may be the best for use with the blackberry. Debatible whether its the best on it's own; but probably the most seamless for using with blackberry.

That said, I'm using Outlook hardly at all. I connect to the computer to backup, but seldom sync anymore. That's me though.

eOffice has integration with Google Docs. If that helps, eoffice also has a trial you can use.

because you are really trying to use the list you have saved in google Docs right?

I would really love to hear what Office or Outlook could do to make it easier with my BB. I do not like Google Calendar or Outlook Express contacts, but that's what I hve been working with for the past year. I used to have Palm; LOVED it, but it died and that's when I went the Blackberry route.
I know there is now a Palm phone but came to late for me.
I appreciate any input here; thanks.

Outlooks works relatively seamlessly with the BB as it is a popular software. Your contacts, notes, tasks, and calendar synch up easily between the device and Outlook.

You can try installing the Bolt Browser and you use Google Docs via the Web Interface through Bolt.

You will be able to sync PIM with outlook without a problem.

As far as syncing Documents like MS Word, you can purchase DTG Premium. Or run the trial it has a document sync add-on.
