I just downloaded the free Dragon Dictation iPhone app. It is really cool.
Here’s how it works:
After installing and launching the app, you tap a button that says, “Record.” You then speak your message — there’s a limit of about 20 seconds, perfect for a text or quick email recording.

To setup Evernote for the iPhone & the desktop, do the following:

I’m an iPhone junky. I’ll admit it. I love the thing. I love it as a productivity app, as a digital voice recorder, as a clock to quickly check what time it is on the other side of the world where some of my family lives, as a quick & easy email client. I could go on and on.
