    Use practices in personal information management (PIM) evolve continually. The data from our two studies, a survey study (n=61) on to-do use practices and a diary/interview study (n=11) on smartphone use in PIM, suggests that electronic PIM has finally reached paper-based PIM in popularity. Mobile phones and their development have been integral to this development: Better input possibilities and better screens together with improved Internet accessibility have made it possible for us to increasingly organize our lives with mobiles. Thus, mobiles have to be in the
    epicenter when designing the PIM applications of tomorrow.
