Notes works well too
Authored by: cmac6126 on Feb 27, '12 10:35:14AM

For those without Messages on all devices ... I've been using an older, but just-as-good method.

I'm running 10.6.8 on my MBP & iMac, and iOS5 on my phone and I find Notes works very well for this.

On OS X, whenever I find something (text, URL, address etc) I need to share, I just highlight it and use the Right-click > Services to get to the 'New Note with Selection' service.
Click Done and it's on my phone almost instantly.

Going the other way is not quite so fast since there is no customisable 'Services', it involves a Hold > Select > Copy on whatever I want to share then switching to Notes and pasting it into a new one.

I currently use both MobileMe and Gmail to sync notes (I have different accounts for diff purposes). Obviously I'll have to migrate to iCloud before June (and a 15" MBA ;-)

And the bonus of this method ... it should work from any computer/email account where you can save a draft email to your Notes folder.
