I just got my first smartphone today - a Samsung Galaxy S II - and my preferred PC notepad application over the last few years, AM-Notebook, unfortunately hasn't jumped on the Android craze. I would of course prefer an app that allows easy sharing of notes between Android and a Windows PC, but my initial look last week at the PC/web versions of two of the seemingly most popular choices, Evernote and Springpad, weren't entirely positive. The Evernote web application seems to be slow to the point of simply not wanting to load at all (just tried it again ten minutes ago in Opera and Chrome, it just sits there attempting to load) - and I've heard some horror stories (including from my father) about the desktop application suffering from some occasionally crippling bugs as well (freezes and crashes). And while Springpad does a little better in that department, I'm not entirely sure if it's apparent focus on document sharing (seemingly even to the point of flagging some types of note content as public by default) mixes too well with my need for almost entirely private work, hobby and daily life related notes, some of them possibly with if not a need for encryption, then at least my desire to do so. At this point I'm considering whether Google Docs could be an option, but without having tried it extensively, it seems like messing around with full sized word processing documents - and a perhaps not stellar sorting system? - might be a little excessive and cumbersome for taking notes? Any other suggestions for Android/PC cloud based systems, or perhaps just some that use easily shared file formats so I can use Dropbox as an intermediate step? Or are Springpad or Evernote worth giving a try after all?
