I've known about Orgzly for quite some time. It's an Android app which is available on both Orgzly on F-Droid and Orgzly on Play Store. The thing that's been stopping me to actually try Orgzly out is the lack of options when it comes to synchronization. For example I would like to synchronize using git. There's an open issue for this git synchroniztion #24, it's been open since , so I'm not having high hopes to see it resolved any day soon.
I've also spent some time thinking about this and came to the conclusion that I probably don't want git as a synchronization mechanism for something as volatile as to do lists and notes. But I still want it somewhere in the back end of my system as a way to make sure what changes are actually stored and backed up.
This is when I started to look into Orgzly's other synchronization options, this is, as of writing in the current version of the app (1.8.5) the available options:
- I'm not a customer of Dropbox so this was a no-go to begin with.
- As far as I know I don't have an easily available WebDAV server that I can use which makes it easy to get the files to my laptops and desktop systems where I can use them with Emacs without doing any fancy scripting to sync the files by hand.
- This just syncs to a directory on the device, doesn't sound like much. But it's the option I went for.
