Mobile Google Notebook

Google Notebook was one of the few Google apps that we're not available from a mobile phone. Now you can go to http://google.com/notebook/m and find a HTML version of Google Notebook optimized for mobile phones. There's also a new notebook "Mobile notes" where you can add notes directly from the homepage.

The "Unfiled" notebook is a great way to access your bookmarks, but you can't add a new one from the mobile interface. Other limitations: there's no search option, you can't edit notes, add labels or change the settings.

  1. Is this a hack to compensate for Google Docs mobile being read-only?
    And if so, do we expect Google at some future point to merge Google Docs and Google Notebook?

  2. If this icon is a hint, I think they'll merge. After all, OneNote is a part of Microsoft Office.

  5. Additionlly, you can send a mobile note directly to one of your other notebooks/folders. That I like a lot :-)

  6. Ref the latter comment, an improvement would be if the 'add a note' window came at the top of the notepad you are in. Would save scrolling down to the bottom of all your notes in that notebook/folder..

  7. What about search!? If you have a large notebook search would be very useful, I can't believe it's not there!

  11. I aggree with Hal -- I want to be able to add notes by sending an SMS. -- Seems like this should be so simple. I can text events to GVENT to add them to my calander. Why can't I send an SMS to ?GNOTE? to add the verbatim text of the SMS (and maybe time info) to a new note in my notebook.

  13. You can delete notes from the desktop interface: http://www.google.com/notebook/

    Click on the small blue arrow from the right corner of each note and select "Delete".
