Bricklin Note Taker

Many of us that have been involved with personal computers since the beginning have a warm spot for Dan Bricklin. He co-invented the first PC spreadsheet package: Visicalc, which bridged the geek world to the world of corporate knowledge worker. I saw many accountants eyes light up when I first demonstrated it.

Now Bricklin has a note taking application for the IPhone that is also quite useful. It bridges the problem of big fingers and the small note taking area of the smart phone. Nicely done, easily learned. Should be on every IPhone if you like to take notes. More here. Pages are stored as jpegs. Would further like character recognition so I could search the results, but keeping it simple is good too.
