Org mode TODO from cellphone



1 Motivations

I want to quickly add notes and TODO from any of my devices, without emacs, i.e. from my Android cellphone. In my opinion the best way to do this is to use an email trigger witch uses the body of your email as the TODO content. You can send the email from every device you own. A linux script can be used in order to copy the txt file content from your Dropbox into your appropriate org file.

2 Software used

  1. IFTTT
  2. Linux shell
