The MobileMe syncing stuff has been working fine for my calendar and contacts. I mentioned previously that there was one annoyance with this — there’s no way to get the birthday calendar down to the iPod Touch. I’ve now gotten around this by turning off the normal birthday calendar in iCal, and instead using the ability of MenuCalendarClock to copy birthdays from Address Book into a “normal” iCal calendar. So, long story short, I’ve got all my birthdays on the iPod Touch. MenuCalendarClock costs $20 to register, which is pretty reasonable, given that it does a few other useful things.
I still haven’t found a good note-taking app that syncs between the Touch and either my Mac, PC, or the web. I’m going to keep an eye on the app store and see if anything new and interesting appears.
