Appendix B MobileOrg

MobileOrg is a companion mobile app that runs on iOS and Android devices. MobileOrg enables offline-views and capture support for an Org mode system that is rooted on a “real” computer. MobileOrg can record changes to existing entries.

The iOS implementation for the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad series of devices, was started by Richard Moreland and is now in the hands Sean Escriva. Android users should check out MobileOrg Android by Matt Jones. Though the two implementations are not identical, they offer similar features.

This appendix describes Org’s support for agenda view formats compatible with MobileOrg. It also describes synchronizing changes, such as to notes, between MobileOrg and the computer.

To change tags and TODO states in MobileOrg, first customize the variables org-todo-keywords and org-tag-alist. These should cover all the important tags and TODO keywords, even if Org files use only some of them. Though MobileOrg has in-buffer settings, it understands TODO states sets (see Per-file keywords) and mutually exclusive tags (see Setting tags) only for those set in these variables.
