If there’s anything wrong with Dropbox -- and we’re not saying there is -- it’s that its friendly, free file storage is a little too reliant on outside apps. Getting an edited Pages file from our Mac to our iPad and back to our Mac, for example, is a multi-step affair: 1) open Dropbox; 2) export the file to Pages; 3) make changes; 4) email the file to our Maclife.com address; 5) open the file on our Mac; 6) save; and 7) overwrite the old file on our Dropbox account.
There has to be an easier way. And Notesy for Dropbox has found it.

As great as iOS is, it’s had one missing feature since the days of the original iPhone: lack of built-in to-do management. That will change with iOS 5’s upcoming Reminders app, but you can take charge of to-do’s today with BusyToDo, which brings familiar to-do management to your iDevice. How familiar? Picture iCal’s to-do features, then imagine most of them transplanted to a no-nonsense iOS app. That’s BusyToDo.
Let’s face it: We’re all looking for ways to spice up mundane photos, otherwise apps such as Instagram wouldn’t have explosive growth.
