    Color me embarrassed — I actually didn’t know about ANY of those apps. But thanks to this, I’ll check ’em out.

    As for everything else: I just have my iPhone as the hub for everything, and have to use a bunch of apps on my Mac to track details:
    – in iCal I have a separate “acting” calendar where I track auditions, etc.
    – I use iBank for finances (essentially uicken for iMac, expect it has a great partner app for my phone), and have acting-specific categories to track acting income and expenses so I can generate reports on my deductibles at tax time
    – I use tags/categories in my contacts list to keep those organized (agents, casting directors, theatre companies, actors, etc)
    – I use “Dropbox” as a store for monologues, sides, etc. I use folders to organize them, and with Dropbox (which is free) I can sync them anytime to any computer or even my phone

    I think the reason that no solution works for you yet is that a one-size-fits-all is impossible because everybody’s career is different. Speaking personally, I have found that any attempt to track “actor things” that involves DUPLICATING data from other sources (Quicken or iCal or my calendar) is doomed to failure.
