    Hey guys,

    I've just gotten my first Android phone and am trying to get stuff set up for ordinary ol' daily use.

    Does anyone know of a free or low-cost app with these features?:
    • Write plain-text notes and organize them in categories (folders)
    • Select font size
    • List notes in actual lists (not like Post-It notes, etc.)
    • Sync to a Google service, email address, Dropbox, etc. (anywhere other than the developer's site)
    • No ads
    • NOT be a bloated do-everything app with media features, social networking, blimp navigation, etc.
    Bonus (but not necessary) features:
    • Bulleted lists
    • Checkboxes for to-dos
    • Select background color
    This seems like pretty basic functionality, but I've been unable to find anything like that it far. Thanks for your suggestions!

    This one pretty well hits all those bases, and the varied ways of making a note are just about endless. You can do a voice recording if you like.

    Free and Paid to get rid of adverts....
    you MUST reward the developers for their work.

    I think Google Keep will do all of that. I use it for quick things mostly, it's a decent little app.

    Yep, Note Everything. Nice app and worth the price. Sign up for google opinion rewards and never pay out of your own pocket for apps again. That's also an app btw. You get paid for your opinion. And we all have them!

    I've used Note Everything but you have to pay for the add on to backup to sd card.


    Google Keep syncs to Google automatically.

    Thanks very much, guys! I've tried both of them now.

    I like Google Keep's effortless syncing. However, I wish there were a way to list notes by title, rather than always having to see graphic representations of them—including a good deal of their contents—as though they were "real" notes. I realize Google's just trying to be (non-technical) user-friendly. For the rest of us, though, it's such an inefficient use of limited display space. It'd be great if a list-style UI were an option.

    Note Everything is terrific, very well designed. I don't mind paying for the SD-backup version, but I wish it had integrated online backup. (It may be hard to believe, but people actually lose their phones now and then.) Do you manually back up your files online? I just wonder how you handle that.
