    If you anything like me and forget things 5 minutes after you think of it then this app is for you. 3Banana is one of the better note apps to help you remember those small things on the run. Snaptic makers of the my old reliable aknotepad takes this app to another level, both visually and functionality. They keep things very simple here, the user interface is simple and the app is responsive and reliable. Whether you use the widget or the normal icon to enter the app you will be taking or editing notes in seconds. Make no mistake this is not Evernote and does not have the wealth of features that it has but 3bananas does what you need it to do, I dont know how you guys feel but to me simple is good and sometimes welcomed. With online synching via there snaptic account or your own google account you can access your notes anytime. Take a look at my pros and cons below for more details on this wonderfully crafted app.

    1. Online note syncing for easy access from another device
    2. Add a picture to any note (1 per)
    3. Barcode scanner (inserts barcode number to the note)
    4. Inline tagging (sweet addition, just write a #tag and all identical tagged notes appear in the list of labels.
    5. Ability to place a note on the home screen.
    6. Google account integration and browser based note creation and editing. You can also create a snaptic account.
    7. HTML tags (allows youtube embeds or multiple image links)
    8. You can also share your notes via Email, Facebook, or Twitter if you so choose.
    9. Pin to homescreen function is included.
    10. Links with snaptics Compass app for taking notes from an exact location.
    11. widget support

    1. No audio recording for voice notes (not really needed but noticed)
    2. Not a fan of the name or icon

    I give this app a 4.5 out of 5. If you need a little hope remembering, a little organization, or just want to jot something down and read it later. Then give this app a try, im sure you will agree with me that it is functional in every way you need it to be.
