Handwritten note taking app?

    Hey guys, I'm considering getting a new mobile device, and this will definitely influence my decision about whether to go Android or Windows 7 (mobile).

    I really like onenote because I can handwrite my notes- and so i remember them better than when I type them. I can also select my text with the lasso (or even individual strokes with a click!) and move it around, in case I don't leave enough room or something.

    Anyway, I'm looking for an app for android that lets me take advantage of a stylus and take notes in multiple colors, and be able to select and move/resize my text. I'd LIKE (but could do without) to be able to sync to my desktop and add pictures or text or whatever- basically what i can do with onenote. However, I haven't found a comprehensive application for android, and I may go with the windows device, just so that I can use onenote (but the performance scares me a bit- android is really snappy!). I wouldn't mind paying for the app. <$100-150

    I already checked out the web apps version of onenote, but it doesn't do handwriting.

    Anyone know if an app like this exists, or is in development?

    Have a look at this, Note Everything for Android.

    And in Android, your finger is your stylus, unless you get one of those expensive capacative stylii.

    I love Note Everything and recommend it highly.

    Also, Mobile Write will translate finger writing into text.

    Huh... that looks pretty cool- can I view my notes on my PC later?
    I think Evernote does the same thing, actually =)

    Thanks guys!

    No problem!

    No, you can't view them on your PC. I don't think any note taking app for Andoid allows this the way the old Palm Notepad did.

    For handwritten notes only, I like Handrite.

    I tried to use Note Everything for handwritten notes, but you get your big writing on a single screen per note. That's it. Want more content, you need another note. Handrite is the same, except your big handwriting gets shrunk down, (maybe to 1/5 size?) in less than a second after you write. So you can fit lots of lines in a note. There's an add-note widget I have on my Home screen to quickly handwrite stuff.

    No lassoing and moving. But you can insert (tap at insertion point, then handwrite anywhere). No selecting, so you can only choose a different pen color before writing, and it's buried under the Menu key.

    I just downloaded your trial software and must say good work. However, I came to this page after experiencing an iPad app called NOTES PLUS. Simply superb. The guy said he would port it to Android but not earlier than 6 months so was wondering if you could have a look at it to see if those features or similar could be reproduced. The result is exactly the same as one writes on a graphical notebook, with colours, highlights, lassoes and clear handwriting with a stylus (I am using Galaxy tab). Tab owners will love you for this.

    Notes Plus does look awesome. Any feedback?!
