    I'm looking for an app will do similar to Palm Memo's - ie something able to store simple text memos in catagories for easy recall (I used this ALL the time in my palm days!)

    Welcome to the forum! :D

    You'll see tons of threads asking the same question. ;) What I use is Note Everything, where I've set up a folder for each of my categories, including one called "Inbox". I've also got two desktop shortcuts that create a new (text/voice) note in my "Inbox" folder.

    Note Everything gives you just the basics, excellently.
    There are loads of other apps that also sync with various online list-keeping services.

    I am also on this path for a note app.
    Are there any however that sync with google. The android phone is a google phone, Gmail, Contacts, Calendar. I'm quite suprised there isn't a good Note app (still looking!) that auto syncs with Google Docs perhaps effortlessly like the rest of the G-Stuff does.

    Welcome to you, too! :D

    I'm still in PalmOS-perspective and like to have stuff with me in the device (as opposed to in the cloud), so I don't know about Google-integrated todo-list apps ... but I have the impression they're rather poor, because Google Todo (or whatever it's called) itself is apparently rather poor. :( As I said, I don't know for sure though.

    And Hi, back!

    Yes, it seems googles to-do app and syncability is quite poor.
    i also like it on my phone, but also like the effortless sync, it's good if the phone is stolen or breaks, just re-sync and your off.

    Note Everything is great for local (phone based) storage of memos.

    GDocs gives "cloud sync" documents tied to your Google Documents, however recently I had it lose a document when it sync'd.

    As a former Palm user for almost 10 years, I have chosen to drink the koolaid. And it's really not that bad.

    Gdocs gets you an app *very* similar to memo, with the added benefit that your docs are available anywhere there's a web connection. And your docs can also be spreadsheets.

    Good luck

    I to am looking to replace my Palm stuff, the last item being the memos. I have memos set up on the Palm desktop program on my pc and synced to my Palm devise as a reference and backup. I REALLY like (and need) the category and sub-category feature to keep my memos organised. I have work memos and personal memos with several sub memos branched off of each main category.

    Anybody use AK Notepad, or 3banana? Sounds like they (Snaptic) sync on their website (snaptic.com) with a free account. Not sure about the categories though. Sounds like they just use labels (like gmail?).

    Any other thoughts for a replacement to me (our) beloved Palm memo?

    I like evernote. Might be more robust than what you're looking for.

    Looked at this after your recommendation and it looks pretty sweet. Where does the info reside, phone, computer, or cloud? Assuming it resides on your computer, If you change the info there does it change anywhere else too?

    Both Cloud and computer. All sources update to match Cloud.

    Can you have multiple computers?

    Yup, I use it on my desktop, laptop, and phone. You can also access all your notes at evernote.com on anything with internet access.

    Bummer that you can't have your notes sort alphabetically on the web, or phone.

    Do you know how to have a note with-in a note? I need sub-categories.

    wow... thanks for all the replies, great thread!

    I stumbled across AK Notepad which I'm currently evaluating.

    To ask a silly question - I followed the link to NOTE EVERYTHING kindly provided by KlaymenDK (thanks!) - how do I download the app from Androlib... can't seem to see a download link. I did create an account but still couldn't figure how to download!

    I've had the desire 3 weeks now and STILL struggle with the keyboard... aarrgghh so frustrating - I guess practice make perfect!

    Thanks to all ex-palm'ers who helped with their suggestions - I do miss somethings about palm OS but everything considered the desire is miles ahead of the pre - I just COULD NOT get on with it!

    Be happy!

    i tried several apps, including those you name. note everything is my choice. it imported my hundreds of palm memos once i exported those notes to .csv files and loaded them onto my SD card for note everything to be able to find. check out the help file for note everything.

    why not just do a search for it in MARKET? you can find both the free, and pro version there.
