Everyone can find a good use for taking notes. Whether it’s your grocery list, or novel ideas, or a list of songs to buy, or anything else that you can think of, people as a whole all have reasons to take a note. It’s one of the rare tasks that transcends demographics. Housewives take list notes called grocery lists while a punk rock guitarist might make a list note for chords he needs to learn. So we’ve brought you the best note taking apps for Android. As always, if you’d rather watch than read, we posted the video at the bottom!
First on our list of note taking apps is called ColorNote. This is a solid app that has pretty much all of the features you could need in a note taking app. You can take regular text notes or list notes as you may require. They can be organized by color so if you want all your business notes to be red and all personal to be blue, you can do that. The app even has functionality to search via color so if you want to see all your red notes, you can. People seem to really like it and that’s why it’s here. To check it out, use the button below.
Evernote not being on this list would be blasphemous. It’s not only the most popular on the list, but also the highest rated. It is packed full of features as well. You can take regular text notes, list notes, picture notes, and voice notes. There are cloud storage options. It doesn’t have all the theming options of some of these apps. People generally use Evernote for its features, though, not for theming. It’s a top notch app and we’re talking just the free stuff. There are even more features if you go premium. To download it, hit the button below.
It wouldn’t be a complete noting taking apps list if we didn’t include something for the stylus crowd. FreeNote is among the most popular note taking apps and it’s also the only one on the list that focuses around handwritten notes. Some people enjoy writing out notes by hand and some, especially tablet owners, find it easier than typing on the keyboard. FreeNote offers a variety of stylus note taking options. The free version will hound you to buy the paid version every now and then, but otherwise they both work just the same. To check it out, use the button below!
Yes, folks, we are once again singing the praises of Google Keep. That’s because it’s a truly simple and powerful note taking app. You have all the best options for note taking apps. Text notes, list notes, voice notes, and picture notes. The voice notes are compatible with Google Voice Search, so you can open that up and tell it to take a note. You can organize them by color and even check them online at drive.google.com/keep. It’s simple, it’ powerful, and it has all the features note takers need without all the extra stuff. Use the button below to check it out.
Note Everything is the first app on this list to utilize folders for note storage. So not only can you take apps, but you can use folders to get things organized. Along with that you can take all the usual types of notes. Picture notes, voice notes, list, and text notes. The app looks like it was designed two years ago, but it’s still one of the most popular and solid note taking apps for Android. To give it a shot, use the button below.
Last on our list of note taking apps for Android is called SomNote. SomNote’s main feature is its folder system. You can not only create folders within folders within folders, but you can also choose folder colors. So while ColorNote and Google Keep select your note color to help organize it, you can use this exact same thing for folder color. There are really only a couple of ways to take a note. There are text notes and then text notes with attachments. Since you can attach a picture you take with your camera right there, it technically allows for picture notes. It looks nice and works well. The button below will take you to it in the Google Play Store.
The Best Note Taking Apps for Android Leaderboard
If you take a look at the leaderboard, you can see how these apps stack up against one another. Frankly, there aren’t many surprises in the list except maybe that Google Keep is the lowest one on there. These ratings aren’t our choice, they are based on the Google Play Store ratings. So this is how the people have rated them. There is no bias on our part.
