My top 6 Android note taking apps - and the one I really use  by Chris74

Missing
Chris74 says: As a tech junkie I wanted to find an Android app that helps me taking notes and remembering things. There is an overwhelming number of related apps flying around, even free ones, all about note taking and task lists and reminders. So I went and checked a few, here is what I found for myself. (I like the idea of providing app lists, this is my second one here) Update: added Catch, thanks reachlorenzo for your post
Chris74's picks
  1. Evernote
    Evernote Seem to consider themselves market leader. Lots of fuzz about the company, their business and the heaps of money made. Actually this was the first notes app I checked. It has lots of features and seems to aim at doing office like work. More than just notes. They claim people use it for expense management and even private investigator work. I am doing neither. This app is great, thought I want it but it's definitely not what I need.
  2. AK Notepad
    AK Notepad The classic, good app. Nice tool to write down a few words. No reminders, photos, little integration. Looks a bit oldish. I want more.
  3. ColorNote Notepad Notes
    ColorNote Notepad Notes Popular download but I never got in line with it. Doesn't have what I want. No idea why this such an immensly popular download, people must like it for some reason. I like the idea of sorting topics/notes by color.
  4. Handrite Note Notepad Lite
    Handrite Note Notepad Lite That's been a hyped app for a while. Think it's a fancy technical goodie. Used it a couple of times and then decided the actual value in daily usage is near zero. Kicked it out. Maybe it's better with a large screen smartphone or a tab, will re-visit when I have one. I use a HTC wildfire.
  5. Note Monger - remember things
    Note Monger - remember things Can do notes, reminders, photo notes... I found the app pretty useful when it comes to juggling with tasks and reminders. Right on the spot ... Pretty straight forward. Doesn't look as stylish as some others. The app keeps bringing new features so I expect some more goodies. They even promised to put in adjustable text sizes when I asked them via email, seems others have asked for this as well. We'll see. Anyway, this is the notes app I am using now.
  6. Catch Notes
    Catch Notes Good note taking app, though pretty slow on my HTC Wildfire. Somehow related to AK Notepad - which is better.

Chris, your list is incomplete, in my opinion, without 'Catch'. Tightly integrated in Android, and it synchronizes with the web, or Desktop version. The Android version has many features that Notemonger seems to have, so I haven't compared them side-by-side, but it is a worth competitor, and my most-used App by far.

Thanks for the hint Reachlorenzo. Took a look at Catch meanwhile. Do like the synchronizing but Note Monger just 'feels' better - I am much faster that with Catch. Maybe that's just because I am used to it. Anyway, I feel I should adjust this list and include Catch instead of Handrite now. Will do once I find the time...

Hi Karolina82,
there is no app on www.everdo.it - just marketing blah blah for a future project. From your post I understand you work for Evernote, you posted the very same text also on other places: Please do not post such marketing spam on my list:
(1) my readers may feel bored
(2) other social marketing assistants will do the same and also post spam comments.
Evernote should not do spam, this is disrespectful towards the other apps. Taking such desperate measures ... seems they are on a decline, somehow

I'm sorry for misunderstanding, I'm not from Evernote, actually we are just a group of people who've tried to find the best solution as a GTD and evernote fans. Some tool - task manager - the best for us, so we develope a new app EverDo.it, is going to be launched later this year.The EverDo.it application will be available for iOS and Android. This tool will not only enable full synchronization with personalized content of Evernote, but will also allow the user to create personal tasks and to do list independently. I thought you may want to know about it :)

Karolina, let me be blunt: you thought wrongly. Non-existing apps cannot be added in these app lists. No review based on a site description.
I appreciate your desire to marketing-talk-up about your project. Tough please do not spam this list with such talk. May I ask you to remove your previous marketing comments to keep my list fact focused? Thanks.

Happy New Year everyone - time to take a fresh look at things. Checked on EverDo.it today to give their app a try now that it's available. And I was suprised...

They told me to launch it last year. Nothing in sight at all for Android today, iPad supposedly "comming soon". I'd call this a miserable failure, just wish they'd remove their spam postings from this site.
