The free Evernote application lets you capture text notes, snap photos, and record voice memos on your iPhone or iPod Touch -- then automatically synchronize them to your desktop (the free Web account gives you 40MB of storage a month). Additionally, Evernote has fantastic image recognition. Take a snapshot of, say, a whiteboard or business card, and Evernote renders text searchable within the photos. Also, you can filter files by tags, date, location, and other criteria.
