    I think this may have been answered on here before but I can't find it.

    Basically, all I want is a memopad with the following features:

    1. Storage of text with a description and grouping of items
    2. Syncs to the cloud/PC so data can be entered using a PC.
    3. Offline mode so can still be read on the PDA even if no internet (this is why I'm leaving Evernote).

    I'm at the stage where I don't think an app like exists for Android yet and am thinking I'll create folders for each group and a text file for each item. I'll then copy this to the device using Dropbox. Has anyone tried this yet?

    Thanks

    Well, I ditched Evenote and went with Snaptic/3Banana combination - much better IMO.

    This depends on how and which services you use--I use gTasks as a note pad. I tried Snaptic, which was good, but it required me to use another Web site (besides Gmail) to get to my notes. Using gTasks I can have my notes in the same place as my email.

    +1 on that - I now have my Mozilla Thunderbird accessing all of my GMail via IMAP, as well as synchronizing my calendar and tasks too, so I can use the web interface from GMail or use Thunderbird on my PC, and use gTasks on my phone.

    I have gTasks set with a wizard on my home screen (main screen) so that whenever I wake the phone up it is right there for me to see.

    The big plus for me with Snaptic was the ability to be able to access the notes on the Desire without an internet connection. (Handy if you're in Turkey with no internet connection on the PDA).

    I think Snaptic is great in this respect.
