    I'm looking for a notepad app that saves your notes to your Google mail account so you can access them on your desktop if you so need to do so. Any suggestions?

    If not, what's the best notepad app out there?

    If you are a Dropbox user, try Epistle. It is very simple and basic, but syncs perfectly and seamlessly so you can see your notes on all your dropbox-enabled devices.

    No, I'm not a DropBox user and won't ever be especially after their recent TOS changes.

    Why don't you just use Springpad? I don't believe it integrates with Google Docs but it can be accessed from your phone or from any browser (PC) and they have very good extensions on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. I use it to implement GTD methodology for my personal life. There are so many things you can do with it and they've been constantly updating end enhancing it's feature set and user interaction functionality and I've been recommending it to everyone I know as a very useful if not essential Android app. You can use your google account as your user account, just click on the Google icon on the line that says: "Already have an account on these services? Sign in with:" below the create account dialog box. Also, Springpad events can be synced with your Google calendar.

    You're welcome and I hope you really like Springpad and find it as useful as I've found it to be. Don't forget to check out their website and their Blogs and Support pages for usage tips. Enjoy!

    I wouldn't worry about the DropBox TOS. They weren't trying to take control of your stuff, all they wanted was to be able to run their services. As explained on July 6th:

    Evernote is pretty cool, but you need the app on both your phone and your desktop...
