Hi all,
So I have about 5-6 notepad apps on my phone & I've been evaluating them for awhile. I've realized that unless I can view/edit/synch/save them equally AND easily between my phone and an internet connected PC they do not hold much value for me. The key here is being easy. One or two mouse-clicks and I'd lile to be on my notes list. I've yet to really find an app that is bringing it all together.

So do you have a notepasd app that is easy to use and accomplishing this? What is it and why do you like it so much.
Thanks for your time and be safe out there.

Hi Doug,

AK Notepad is actually one of the first programs I loaded. However, I do not know of any live-synching this program does. I remember being able to backup the notes to the SD card but not online synching. Do I have this wrong?

Evernote or Springpad. Instant synching and so much more than a mere notepad.

I use Evernote for exactly that. I keep it safe if I lose my phone it is all up there in Evernote.

Check out their site and listen/watch the demos and case studies. Very impressive for free.

Also has a paid version which gives you a very generous space and upload capacity.

I have found it to be totally reliable and have been using it for the last 3 months.

This is really worth a look, so please go to the site and try them out.

Before anyone asks I am not connected to them in anyway except as a user who has had his life put in order using this free product and service.

I am using it on the HTC Desire with Froyo

Evernote seems to be just the right App for you.
Evernote provides an app for your mobile phone and a program for the PC. The App can be synchronized with the desktop app via an online service.
On the PC, you can manage and edit your notes, etc. There are now well on the way plugins on the PC in a browser the ability to automatically create notes. Either the URL of a homepage, a selected text and much more.

Hi all,
Thanks for all the words.
As an update I have moved to 100% use of the program 'GTasks'. This programs syncs instantanously with Google Tasks. As I have three email accounts all forwarding to Gmail, and the sync is seemless, and I do not have to open another webpage, this program is just what I was after.

I too have switched to gTasks.. mainly used the web version of Google tasks with a shortcut icon on home screen until I came across Android Agenda Widget while looking for a scrollable calendar widget.

As I was looking through the settings I noticed it had the ability to include Google tasks by way of "gtasks"..

so for those that already are using gtasks you might want to get the Android Agenda Widget to keep all your calendars and tasks seamlessly together. :-)

The gtask app is not by Google.. but its sole purpose In life is to be a Google tasks app Basically.. and does it very well. It lacks some of the features you find un the other apps mentioned above like the abilities to lock the app with a password... but then again most of the task I need to get done are not a matter of National Security.

and Google Tasks in GMail doesn't exactly roll off like butter either. IMHO, GTasks is better integrated into Google Tasks then Google Tasks is into GMail. GTasks is not Google as I know it too.
