    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to this forum and new to smartphones, with a Nokia 6230 being my daily companion before a recent switch to the Samsung Galaxy S.

    I'm a person who likes to organize and make lists a lot and i have a certain type of App in mind, that i hope you can help me find.

    What I'm looking for is an App similar to the "Memo"-App that comes with my Android phone; maybe you're familiar with it. However i'm looking for slightly more functionality:


    • List-like structure
    • Sufficient text-length allowed per item (2KB is more than enough)
    • Items are collapsed/compact by default, can be expanded to read their whole content
    • Visible numbering of said list items (1., 2., 3., etc.)
    • The ability to comfortably rearrange their order; think priority list (Drag&Drop would be perfect)
    • An interface as simplistic as possible (e.g white text on black/grey background.)

    I hope you can help me out.

    Thanks,
    Adrian

    I'm currently trying springpad. It's pretty simple. Has note feature, add audio or a pic to the note if you want, can do a task/check list. And you can sync the notes online
    In compact form you see the first line of the note or you can create a title. Then tap to expand for the full note/list

    Did you check out Catch Notes or Astrid? I use Astrid on my home screen of my incredible so i can see a quick list of things i need to do.

    ^ ah I think it was catch note I used before springpad. I should try to keep track. I just search note pad in the market and have been making my way down the list.

    I did the same thing - except for about 3 months I kept them all so I would know which ones I had downloaded. That's how I came to have the two I have now. I didn't like the rest of them much.
