    I recently started working at a used video game store and have been noticing a bunch of games that I'd like to buy down the road. The only problem is, I see so many that they're easy to forget. I don't really want to pull my phone out and have to scroll through my apps to find Evernote or something to be able to take a name down during work, so I'm looking for something a little specific.

    If I could have an app that allows a widget on one of my homescreens that displays my text and a quick tap of it would allow me to edit it, that would be great. Same goes for looking at the hours that I work and taking them down. It would all be quick and sloppy (like grabbing a piece of scrap paper and noting something) but I could have it cluttering my homescreen so I would remember to sort it all out when I get home.

    Does such an app exist?

    I like whiteboard for pure simplicity and nice widget.

    How about simplicity without a widget? I'm thinking those game boxes have barcodes, right? So I'd suggest using one of the shopping apps. For example, Google Shopper allows you to keep a saved listing.

    Google Shopper for Android
    Save your history and favorites
    Shopper saves your history and lets you star your favorites for later.

    I'm thinking all you would have to do is launch Google Shopper, scan the barcode, and save it as a favorite for later. The only issue is if it can't match the barcode to the product then your back at square one.

    Anyway, if you find a note app you like, I'd suggest using speech to text to take notes instead of the keyboard.

    Easy Note is free. supports handwriting, text type.

    HOWEVER, if you want records on steroids, google MEMENTO... supports barcode scanning, stores lists of things you already have, things you want, anything you want in self assigned and named categories.

    I keep my DVD/Blue Ray collection handy with it, and so I can verify I do not already own what I'm about to add to my "wishlist"

    Just started using it, but seems to work well, with more features than most apps allow for.

    I bought Widget Notes - Whiteboard Pro...
    Write notes!
    Draw notes!
    Write AND draw notes!
    Speak notes!
    Share notes!
    Take notes on top of other applications!
    Pinpoint notes on your photos!

    Not the easiest at first, but it does a lot.

    The "Note 2 Self" app would be an alternative approach.

    - Pop it open from the lock screen.
    --SPEAK YOUR NOTE --
    - The voice note is converted to text
    - 2 taps and the note is emailed to your pre-selected email account
