Why email is still my favourite “app”

I can imagine a lot of you already “moaning” about this but lately I just got the confirmation that the only app that works for me is my email. Why? Easy, consistency.

I try a lot of apps, cloud solutions and whatever else there is but the only app/solution which gives me always the same content with basic possibilities is the email client. As many others I use different devices but not all might use different OS as well. My mobile devices are a BlackBerry, a Lumia and an iPad wich means BlackBerry/Android, Windows Phone 8.1 and iOS operating systems. Besides those devices I also use OSX and Win 7 systems.
Now there are a lot of apps which can help getting your data from one device to the other, create Todo lists and more and I’ve been using some of them for some time, amongst others Evernote, which I still use as a note taker, Wunderlist, Horizonate etc, but I never had a consistent experience over all devices and especially most solutions are a pain when you need offline access to the information. So for now I’m sticking to my mail database and the good old paper notebooks for taking notes, sketch ideas, work with Todo lists and calendar items. IBM Notes with IBM Notes Traveler make sure that my information is always at my fingertips. And the paper notebook never runs out of battery..
