10 best note taking apps for Android
One of the many great things about having a smartphone is the ability to take notes. You have your smartphone on you at practically all times. That makes it a prime spot to put your moments of inspiration. Or a good place to put that you need to get milk at the store. Either way, it’s a great place for note taking is what we’re saying. Of course, you’ll want the right app for that job so lets take a look at the best note taking apps for Android! We also recommend checking out Mozilla’s Notes by Firefox if you don’t mind beta software.
ColorNotePrice: FreeDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYColorNote is one of the most popular note taking apps. It allows you to create text notes, lists, and more. Its namesake feature is the ability to change the background color of notes to help you stay organized. That’s a feature many other note taking apps borrowed from this one. Some other features include calendar support, backup support to both internal storage and cloud storage, and more. ColorNote also has to-do list features as well. Best of all, it’s completely free.DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
LectureNotesPrice: Free trial / $3.89DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYLectureNotes was one of the first really good note taking apps for students and academics. It was one of the earliest apps to include stylus support and continues to be one of the best with that feature now. There is support for OneNote and Evernote along with PDF support, audio and video recording capabilities (for recording lectures or meetings), and a lot more. It employs an open layout that’s great for writing notes or typing them if needed. There are enough tools there for almost any college student or anyone else who needs to take detailed notes. We recommend checking out the free trial before buying it. It’s not great for general use, but it’s definitely great for academia. DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Omni NotesPrice: FreeDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYOmni Notes is another very simple note taking app with a Material Design interface. This one uses a vertical card layout that is both easy to scroll through and easy to keep track of. It also has the ability to merge, sort, and search through your notes for better organization and discovery. On top of that, the app has DashClock support, widgets, and a sketch-note mode where you can draw and doodle if you want to. It has enough features to be competitive without bogging itself down. It’s one of the great note taking apps for those on a budget as well.DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
SomNotePrice: Free / $3.99 per month / $39.99 per yearDOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAYSomNote is a bit of a wildcard in the note taking apps space. It caters more to the long-form note taking style. That makes it great for things like journals, diaries, research notes, story writing, and others. It has a folder system for easy organization, a locking mechanism to keep things secure, and theming options. There is also a syncing feature so you can go back and forth between devices. The free version has ads and limited cloud support. The premium subscription gives you 30GB of cloud storage, no ads, and more. You do have to subscribe to get rid of the ads, but that’s about the only downside. There is no single payment option.DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
