Pocketmod low tech iPad

I am not exactly a technophile, and I am not really a gadget freak - I don't buy the latest technological toy or keep up to date as to what is great about the iPad or the Playbook. I did, however, realize that with all of the activities my kids are in and all of the volunteer meetings and events that I am involved with that I needed to have a better way to track things in a portable way that allows me to update it and read from it whenever and wherever I need to.

In comes Pocketmod. The Pocketmod is a single sheet of paper that, through the free pocketmod software, you can choose from a variety of different things to put on each page, then you print it, fold it, and now it is a business card sized agenda/notebook/To Do List/music staff sheet/etc... that you can carry around with you wherever you go.

Another really neat feature, the way I use it, is the PDF to Pocketmod converter. This has allowed me to make a custom pocketmod from an MS Excel spreadsheet that I then print to PDF, and then the PDF to Pocketmod converter turns it into a Pocketmod.

Another use I have had for a pocketmod is to schedule and keep track of my gardening work, so in it I have put entries like: when I am to start some seeds indoors, when am I to plant them, harvest them, fertilize them and so on.

Another use I thought of though I haven't needed to use it in this way is to use the pocketmod as a food tracker if ever I needed to watch what I eat for a diet program. Other things that could be tracked are cash spending events, review notes of movies, ideas for future hubs or other ideas for things like paintings or poems or stories or songs.

I recommend the pocketmod for anyone who doesn't like to be encumbered by devices or large agendas but who has to keep track of a bunch of things.

See the video below to learn how to fold the pocketmod.

      Thanks for being the first to comment here! I may eventually get in Ipod touch to replace my pocketmod, but for now the pocketmod stays.

      Hmmm. Informative. From someone who carts around my iPad everywhere I go, this seem easy enough. Thanks for the information!
