It's a free lightweight app by Google that works as a reminder, organiser, list maker, alarm... etc. Why is it my favourite? You can log into it from practically anything that can connect to the internet and access your info. Got an Android App, IOS App, Chrome App and a Web App.
You can also have multiple people collaborating on certain lists, reminders, posts... etc. It's also compatible with Whatsapp, Google Docs... etc.
I tried a few organiser apps before this but none was as light weight with these kinds of features and access points and most were not free.
Did you try Google Keep? It's a great app to take notes and create checklists.
The browser version is available here and you can even share individual notes with others if you want to.
Hope you like this one.
Keep covers most of those. It doesn't delete items but does move them to the bottom, however there is a button in the three dot menu to untick all items and they will restore in the original position. You can easily add, edit, reorder etc.
It doesn't do swipe to mark as checked.
There's either the Chrome app or you can just use it in the browser
Then there's the Android app
100% Google Notes (offiziell: Google Keep)
Synchronisiert automatisch in die Cloud, funktioniert super handschriftlich und über Tastatur. Geht sogar in iOS.
Edit: und ich mag es auch einige Notizen (Einkaufsliste) mit einer Gruppe zu teilen (in dem Fall mit der Familie)
Google Keep works well for many and I've heard that Evernote is wonderful as well.
2 very powerfull and great alternatives :
Best one overall is Google Keep with itd deep integration on Googles echosystem [link]
The only other one wich is as powerfull is WeNote from XDA wich Can Sync with Google Drive for online backup [link]
IMO, these 2 are the only ones to compete, and even be by some ways, better than Evernote
<strong>Google Keep</strong> for OCR.
Create a new note by clicking the camera icon
from the "Add image" pop-up choose either "Take photo" or "Choose image"
Click on the image you chose.
Click on ... (hamburger menu)
Click on "Grab image text"
Scroll the image down to see the OCR text conversion.
Just to get it out the way, I use Google Keep for almost everything. The recently added ability to pin notes to the top makes it excellent for a brief summary of the day's events.
Additionally, the colour coding, tagging, and sharing makes it a super-easy way to make quick little notes throughout the day, and organise at a later date.
Using the Google Assistant ...
"Ok Google take a screenshot"...
... which takes a screenshot AND brings up the "Sharing" menu
...then SHARE TO (.e.g) ...
... <strong>Google Keep</strong> where you can use the drawing tool ...
OR SHARE TO ...
... Screen Master where you can edit it ...
... and when done with either share it on to your friends
(no local saving effort required although it will automatically be in the apps)
Google Keep. It has an app as well as a browser version.
It's perfect for creating To-Do's and setting up reminders.
Google can set reminders by location, for example using Google Now ("Ok Google, remind me to call Fred when I get home") or Google Keep. You have to set your Home location in your Google app preferences so it knows when you're home.
If you check your (Android) phone a lot, you can download this app: Google Keep which lets you make lists and stuff. Then you can make one with just 'Reality check' or something. After that, you can make a widget on your homescreen with that reminder, so you'll think about it every time you look at your homescreen
Edit: made a quick example for you: Screenshot
As far as I know, Google Keep does all of this. You can add notes at keep.google.com, it syncs with your Google account, labeling notes was just added in, and it also supports time-based and location-based reminders.
Google Keep is a simple, nice looking app, though maybe a bit cluttered for some people: [link]
I've heard good things about Todoist: [link]
You'll get a larger window to work with your note if you install the Google Keep Android app and people won't be able to see your other notes in the background.
If you maximize the app window you'll get an even larger window but people can peek at your other notes.
Best solution is to not maximize the app but instead to drag to resize it. You'll find the sweet spot where the note is largest ... beyond that it'll show background notes again.
You can work with the chrome and Android interface at the same time. Quite handy when working with two notes & copying & pasting etc.
"Ok Google take a screenshot"... Then share with Google keep
Sometimes note needs to be closed & reopened for it to be able to grab the text.
For line by line handwriting OCR correction:
Pen to Print - Convert handwriting to text
For me what's worked the best is the google Keep app. Since I'm a in-house biomed who does OR/Cath Lab/PACU some days I get a lot of calls and don't document all the work I did. I use the google Keep app now and created a label called work and it's helped a lot. It also keeps all of my work photos from mixing with my personal photos on my phone. During the day I take photos or type notes in my work group label for each repair I did with details. When I get back to my desk I can pull up the Keep app in my chrome browser and document all of my work. If I took photos in the keep app (which is a lot), those photos sync up also which I can then use as well.
Use the "Keep" app. Make multiple lists, share with family and friends. My wife and I use it, and she can update lists while im shopping, or whenever we think of something we put it on the app. Very easy to use and super convenient.
1) Google Keep has tagging; you can add tags to a note either from ... menu / Labels or by just typing # into your note which brings up a dropdown of your existing tags.
2) Personally I like an alphabetical ordered tag list so, as I do with Pocket and other "flat" tag systems, I create a de facto tag hierarchy such as:
Keep for basic lists/notes.
Nimbus note if you want some text formatting and/or folder organizing.
Both can be accessed in through web clients.
I use Keep, together with Calendar (I use the google one as well) it works great!
Just like sid32 said, you need to have Google Keep installed and logged in with the same Google Account that your phone is logged in with. Then the Google Assistant would be able to give you a reminder at that location.
Google Keep is probably the best in general. [link]
However, for handwritten notes with a stylus, Squid is the best. [link]
Awww! very kind of you! I may message u! Thank you! <3
As for journal writing, I am not a fan of my handwriting either, so I use Google Keep app. it's super-easy to use and to organize. It can be fun too! :-)
The cost of bottom surgery is indeed much but I moved to CA last year to use its medicaid, which covers such procedures. I finally got my 2 letters last Friday, so I guess I should hear from a doctor in the next month and get it done by the end of Summer. I do want them gone totally asap and I have heard there's still a way to leave some skin for future -- in case I want to the big thing!
Good luck with dilating! I am sure it is all rewarding in the end! (I have heard dilating takes a lot of time and energy. So, eat well! ;-) )
Have a gr8 Sunday! <3
Use Keep with below intent to make audio note. You need to figure out how to start this intent on press volumme twice and retrive the content note from Keep to add it to your todo.
A1: Send Intent
If I plan to make a post, I typically write it up in Google Docs beforehand (on my computer, at home) and then copy-and-paste it into a Reddit comment on Friday (from my phone, before eating lunch at work). I also use Google Keep to remind myself to add a topic to the Google Doc in the evening.
Google Keep is a note app, Android Pay is a payment app that can also store loyalty cards (Wallet was the old name).
Try Google Keep:
sections/categories: yes, labels
pdf: not yet
highlight: not yet
support from desktop: yes , web version , auto syncs with App notes.
reminders: yes, location reminders, recurring reminders.
Try Google Keep.
It's got an app here and a web version here.

I like to use the Google Keep app for my grocery list because i can share it with my SO and update it at any time. Whoever goes to the store first already has a list of what the other person wants at their fingertips.
I'm also really lazy and like my Google Now feature on my phone. I can just say. "Ok google, add milk to the grocery list" and it sticks it right there for me without even having to touch my phone! Comes in handy when I'm cooking and use the last of something and want to put it on my list before i forget.
I think there is also an app called "OutOfMilk" and it does the same thing but has more features like storing the average price like you're doing now! It didn't really work for me when I used it two years ago though so hopefully they've improved it since then.
I like Google Keep for ideas as it's fast and fuss free, and ZZZI Random Music Alarm is great for waking up. It shuffles all your music and plays one track randomly. I find it great for morning motivation and mood.
Of course, I'm presuming you own an Android phone.
I think it really needs a lot of more detail into the title, description and photos. At first glance I don't really get what the app is for. Is it like a note taking app? Like sticky notes? Take a look at Google Keep's product page, it has so much detail on the title, description and photos. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.keep
Think about SEO, how would people find your app? What are they looking to do that your app would help them do?
I mean if you like social media layout for notes just make a private twitter. With the twitter app you can be logged into multiple twitter accounts so no need to log in an out. Just switch to the note acct and go.
If that idea isnt appealing to you have you tried these apps?
I use Keep on Android! I've tried symptom trackers but never found one that was as good as my just logging things in Keep.
The best tracker app I could find at the time was actually Period Tracker which allowed me to add symptoms and pick icons for each so I just tapped those icons when I had those symptoms. But that was several years ago. I'm sure there must be better apps or there by now.
I have answers for your two problems
Use Google keep instead for Samsung notes and use Google dailer instead of phone app to get more screen estate
And about the side panels and back gesture, you can easily open side panel without going back by holding the side for 0.3 secs and then swiping. ヾ(⌐■_■)ノ♪
I use these ways - and if its really, really important, all three ways for the same thing with multiple snooze alarms. Put it on Google KeepNotes and set an alarm for it [link] or my speaking alarm clock and program it to tell me. [link] Or some people swear by Google Assistant (I personally find it creepy, but a lot of people like and use it all the time).
Good for you, so happy.
Sounds like you're doing well in school.
This suggestion sounds a little remote but will suggest it anyway.
See if you can find a good app for organizing your life, time, schedule and notes.
It's important that you plan things out some so you avoid your earlier pitfalls.
Plan events to help you maintain a course or direction for yourself. Know when appointments are and have notes available to help remember stuff. Be reminded when something is coming up.
If you can organize your life you will feel soooooo much more in control and reassured that you are true to your compass.
Lots of apps.
A simple one: "Google Keep". [link]
More bells & whistles: "business calendar" [link]
Dad for a minute.
from the "Add image" pop-up choose either "Take photo" or "Choose image" (of your annotated powerpoint or worksheet)
You might also be able to directly share your powerpoint or worksheet to Google Keep - I haven't tried that.
I use Google keep for that, so I can also set at which time I want it. I don't know if there's a limit to how much text the mi band can display, so for that you'd have to try it yourself
Here is the link to the app: [link]
Google Keep has a companion app that is automatically installed if you have Keep on your phone. I use it very often when I do groceries. You can also share notes and lists with other peoples.
I'm assuming you don't have a desktop pc or Chromebook where you could get your Android tabs via ...
History - Tabs from other devices
So without a pc or Chromebook if I were in your shoes I would use Google Keep and Labels.
You could create a bunch of labels in Google Keep.
At your leisure go through your Android tabs and share them to Google Keep & assign them one of your created labels immediately as you go.
For each of your tabs you'll wind up with a Google Keep note with the tab's url, link & picture icon neatly ordered alphabetically by your chosen label names.
The chromium based Kiwi has many neat features including bookmarks import and support for Chrome web store extensions - worth taking a look at.(& soon chrome, firefox bookmarks sync)
Google Keep can copy-paste but you need to manually paste once it's copied to the other device. And it needs an Internet connection.
I've found it to be far more reliable than any other Internet/network clipboards I've tried. All the others occasionally unsync and I need to restart either the phone, or Chrome (pc), or both.
Google Keep has a Windows and Android version that can manually sync between them. It works more reliably than other sync clipboards I've tried. Only syncs text.
from the "Add image" pop-up choose "Take photo"
(or "Choose image")
(or "Ok Google take a screenshot"... Then share with Google keep)
tap on uploaded image in the note.
then click on drawing tool icon now displayed on top
start annotating/drawing [how-to]
(you can continue editing your annotation at any time - even on a different device thanks to Keep syncing)
... immediately: (top right ... menu)
...after reopen: (bottom right ... menu)
copy to Google Docs( ... save as pdf)
send to other apps (Google Drive, Gmail, ...)
sometimes picture note needs "close & reopen" for drawing changes to show.
Google's Keep Notes does that. It listens to the microphone and saves both a transcript and the audio recording. It doesn't seem to accept an audio file as input tho.
I use the Samsung handwriting recognition with the pen and Google Keep.
You could easily type as well in keep but I like using the pen because sometimes I use the drawing board function to either sketch ideas so attach pictures to notes to draw on.
You can color code your notes as well as adding labels. You can also search in keep and access it from the web.
That way if my next phone is not a Samsung I don't have to worry about losing anything I saved in s notes.
Don't force it. Sometimes a few words will pop into your head that sounds good. Write them down. I use Keep on my phone. You can also access via the Web or Chrome. Saves to the cloud as well.
Another thing I find helps is, if I've got a good chord progression or riff, try different sounds. Clean, with distortion, with fuzz, with phaser, etc. Just a change in sound can stir something.
You could do the same very easily on Google keep app . By repeating the reminder whenever you want... plus it is synced to your Google ID so it is consistent on every platform.
I've recently started to write down names of people I meet and expect to meet in Google Keep, the best note taking app ever made. Get it on play store here ��
Both Google Keep and Text Fairy can import images and convert lettering to searchable text. Text Fairy can also export as PDF. Don't know of any screenshot app that can handle all those tasks.
I've found that online OCR websites do a better job than apps of converting bitmap lettering to editable text.
> looking for Apps that sync with apple calender and Google notes. The first of those I can find Apps for, but many don't show shared calenders, and I really need that functionality.
Google "notes"?? Do you mean "Keep"?
As for iCloud calendars, try to set up sync with iCalendar Sync and then you shoudl be able to view these calendars with any calendar app.
> Also: If you need to remember to do something tomorrow, change your phone's lock screen to an image that will remind you of it.
I use Google Keep, IMO it's much more, better then that suggestion.
That's why I recommend using Google Keep it's an app that shows you notes that you have made and you can set reminders for yourself to do things later.
Of course you shouldn't have to do this, but it's necessary nowadays.
Incoming Android link!
Google Keep $0.00
My fave feature is personally the widget. I have an entire Desktop page dedicated to the widget.
You should also take a look at:
If you're on Android, you can also try Google Keep which is really similar (it has reminders, multiple colors, lists, etc.) and you can access it through a browser
Google Notes - it's a simple notemaking tool I personally use all the time and it automatically syncs between all devices. Comparable to Evernote, which has a pemium service though.
Google Rewards - an easy way of making some Google Play money, can be uses on everything you can buy in the Google library.
Google Translator - a super handy tool if you habe to deal with more than one language, it is able to translate most languages and you don't even have to type it in, you can either tramsalte directly from a photo or just talk to it.
LastPass - my preferred password manager, it will memorize your passwords and create secure ones if you want it to.
Netflix - a subscription based movie service, I really enjoy it as it makes super long work commutes and idle time more fun, and on mobile you can also download the movies and series for later offline usage.
Pixlr - is my preferred photo editing programm, though I am actually sure that there are better apps for that out there.
Reddit Is Fun - in my opinion the most usable Reddit app and makes Reddit on mobile even more enjoyable than on PC so your poop time will increase drastically.
Shazam - ever wanted to know how that one song is called? Just shazam it and it will most definitely deliver.
Spotify - probably the best music service out there and I thougroughly recommend that you get the premium subscription, not only does it give you better quality audio, which isn't really noticable on mobile though, but you aren't forced to use random mode anymore, as you sadly are otherwise in the app, and lile in Netflix you can download for offline usage.
Sudoku - helps to bridge those spare ten minutes and is actually kinda addicting.
Whatsapp - everyone probably uses it, but it's my favourite way to stay in contact with other people so I'll include it.
Linguee is a nice alternative to the Google Translator in regards to comprehension of the translated texts. - recommended by u/YellowishWhite.
Bitwarden is said to be a nice alternstive to LastPass, by u/Szymas255.
KeePass is apparently an even better password manager as the two previously named ones, as it stores the passwords more secure. It doesn't seem to have an official app in the Play Store though, you might want to look into it for PC usage though. Recommended by u/FierceDiety_.
Beatfind is said to hog less resources, was recommended by u/kapitonas.
Snapseed looks like a good alternative to Pixlr in regards to photo editing, thanks u/dr-dialup.
google keep + alarms + doitnowrpg app + stay focused
do it now for regular schedule (wake up, shower/brush/shave, clean house, gym, etc.)
google keep for all on my other 1 time tasks (client schedule, invoice clients, get slip number for new client, change out anode on x client, get tank fill, etc.)
add google keep with an alarm clock to stay on track (website mockup = 1:00, naruto = 0:25, get before and after screenshots from client videos = 0:30, etc.)
if I'm going to screw around on reddit I'll add a timer to that for say 0:15 on another tab so I have to physically click off here to turn it off.
stay focused extension to block everything when it's time for bed, plus a nightly/ morning alarm clock for when I need to get ready for bed and wake up.
extensions/ links (all of these are for chrome/android not sure if they work for other browsers/ios)

It has a share feature
Have you tried google keep
Google Keep is good, does all the basics all in one package.
If you're really super into checklists, and you want several check lists to each have their own widgets, and you want a calendar to help you organize your lists, and remind you when things are due, etc, etc. I recommend TickTick. There is a free version and a paid option ($28/year), I generally hate subscriptions, but I think this one is worth it. The only thing I don't like about TickTick is the windows app, it's not great. When on my PC, I'll generally opt to use the website instead of the windows app.
For notes I use MS OneNote
Google Keep seems to be the one note app that people love, and I like it , but it can not sort lists in alphabetical order. With a long grocery list this can be a pain, so I found out about Memorix Notes + Checklists here on this sub. It is like keep, but you can sort lists in alphabetical order.
Another I really like is Sportractive GPS Running Cycling Distance Tracker, most of the other apps like Runtastic force you to login, and try and be a social media app, which I loathe.
Chrome will be your best friend here. One of the best parts about Google's ecosystem is that it includes iOS! And Mac (via Chrome). Chrome has its apps on the Chrome Web Store.
Google Keep on: iOS, Android, Chrome
What other services are you looking for? Definitely check out Google Music too!
Google Keep - Notes and Lists
Open to suggestions/questions.
The absolute best? Not sure. But boy, my Tabletop App folder is getting beefy. Android stuff ahead.
The vast majority of my notes goes into Keep. It doesn't support standard formatting options, but it's free, works well with tags, and is super seamless to sync across devices. I can just select whatever tag I use for any given campaign and everything is right there. Locations, characters, quests, session notes, all easy to access. You can add images, hyperlinks, and even draw with a stylus if you need to. Contains a pretty robust search function too.
I use Squid on the side, it's great for quick handwritten note taking. After a session, I reference it to permanently record data into Keep. It also supports multiple "notebooks," so you can have one for each campaign.
Battle Tracker for initiative. Made for D&D originally though, requires a bit of grunt work tweaking monsters. I wish it was a bit more robust, but for now it does the job.
Lion's Den's d20 Calculator is my go-to when it's more convenient to go digital that spend ages adding up fistfuls of dice.
Masterwork Tools is my reference app for when it's too time consuming to access Archive of Nethys or d20pfsrd. It's not up to date, but still very useful.
I have a bunch of other apps I use fairly infrequently, but I don't want to go nuts with this list. Special note for Treasure Generator though, there's something so satisfying about throwing in some random treasure chest every now and again.
Try Google keep.
Welcome. Keep in mind that you've just entered a world where "there isn't one built in" is a positive. This might take some time to adjust to. Give it some time. Android has historically been for people who want their phones to work for them, rather than having to work for their phone.
Think of it like this: experiment, experiment, experiment. Install apps, ask questions, and start to draft some "I wish I could..." requests. You'll likely find that whatever it is that you wish you could do is possible on Android. This freedom leads many of us to get quite anxious about the claustrophobic world of iOS and its "built in" one-size-is-supposed-to-fit-all nightmare.
As to your question, there are a ton of great options. You'll have to determine what will work best for you.
Google Keep is a good place to start. You can create grocery lists, share them with you partner, set reminders based on time or location, etc. You can also add items via talking - "Ok Google, add milk to my shopping list" to add items.
TickTick is a more advanced solution that may or may not work for you. It's not as popular as Todoist, but it's far better, in my opinion. It's somewhat less expensive and provides a better experience overall.
Then there is the "built in" "Ok Google" reminders. "Ok Google. Remind me to buy milk at 6:00pm".
I find Google Keep is pretty great for notes.
Unfortunately, I don't think there's an easy way to transfer notes. I'd say your best bet is to download Google Keep on your iPhone and just copy paste all your notes into it. iOS link, Android link
Side note: I'm glad to see more people switching to Android! If you haven't already, I recommend getting a new keyboard and launcher, Samsung's ones aren't so great. I use GBoard and Nova Launcher, but there are many alternatives. Have fun!
This is free, and it's on iOS too.
Looks like an uglier version of Google 'Keep', which even has a synching desktop app:
You can do that on Google Keep.
I would suggest using <strong>Google Keep</strong>:
Create a Pseudo Label Hierarchy.
Use a personal label system such as e.g.:
sn. -> school notes
Keep will maintain the labels alphabetically sorted.
II) Annotating / Drawing on notes
from the "Add image" pop-up choose "Take photo"or "Choose image"
For regular use or longer notes Google Docs(Web version in Desktop mode NOT the app) is a better tool for OCR than Google Keep
Cursive writing OCR comparison I made
(Pen to Print vs Google Docs)
Hey, I'm so sorry you are having such a hard time trying to get diagnosed! I was diagnosed relatively late in life as well (age 22) and by that time I had gone through my entire education without a diagnosis and my grades reflect that. Just the fact that you are convinced and that you have done your research will help. Knowing what ADHD is and how it can effect you and what parts of your life it can effect is already one big step forward!
Some coping mechanisms that have worked for me are:
Setting reminders on my phone, that is also connected to my email (if you have a smartphone with this capability)
Google and gmail are fantastic. There are so many apps you can use from google in combination with your email it is great! Many times, when I remember something, or have a creative thought that I don't want to forget, I have an app from google (keep notes: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.keep&hl=en ) and you can do a lot with that. I would suggest to check it out. You can use it on the computer on your gmail, or as an app, and they will sync up as long as you are using the same account. You can add images and notes under, make lists (checklist style) you can also just use it as a note pad. It also has the possibility to record a sound note, if you don't have the motivation to type it up etc.
I'm not great at keeping track of time, so I become extra paranoid that I will be late, I generally try to give my self an extra 30 mins to get to where I need to be. and most of the time it means I'm early, but it beats being late :)
Keeping a visual aid may also help, a laminated blank sheet or a white-board with erasable markers, and you can keep that somewhere in plain site. What I have also read somewhere is people use the erasable markers on mirrors, one that you will always see before you go to bed, and after you wake up. I haven't tried this yet, but it definitely seems like a good idea.
I'll add more if I can remember them. I hope this helps! And good luck, I hope you manage to find somewhere to get it diagnosed soon! :)
I don't know if there's an alternative for IOS, but for Android, you can use Keep Notes for this functionality in mind.
If you mean you're keeping notes in a contact, I'd like a propose a new way. Use Google Keep. There's a shortcut for it in the right sidebar. Mobile app as well (iOS/Droid).
I know any change to a workflow is a PITA, but I'm sure you can build the new muscle memory quickly.
Free, cloud backup, voice input, probably already installed, colored labels.
Google Keep or Sketch
Google Keep Notes
Note taking app: [link]
I recommend everyone to keep notes on their phone about the situation. Google Keep is a good app
Information is vital
Google Keep or Evernote
Evernote does a better job of scanning documents, Google Keep doesn't handle PDF files. Both can be synced across different devices.
Evernote also has an Android wear version Evernote for Android Wear if you want to use it from your android watch (if you have one that is).
Top 3 For me:
1. Google Keep - I just love the simplicity of the app
2. Business Calendar 2 (Paid) - Love the UI and Widgets
3. Loop - Use it for a week and then you'll see the difference.
If you have any better suggestions feel free to reply ✌️
Google Keep (website) (App)
I know where you're coming from, but hear me out.
First, you're going to secure all browsers, even Edge. I have linked some extensions.
Second, you're going to uninstall Internet Explorer.
Third, and this is the most important one… You're going to install apps of the websites he uses from the Windows Store. The Windows Store is incredibly secure, you just can't fuck up with that. You mentioned Facebook, Messenger, Yahoo and poker. If you can find exactly what he uses on the Windows Store, the security of his computer is greatly improved.
Do not fear to install apps from the Windows Store on your personal computer to test them before you install them on your grandpa's computer, as you will be helping him understand the wonderful security that apps provide. You can easily uninstall them, and that's the biggest feature they have (haha).
Lastly, nuke everything. Malware is generally hard to completely remove. If you are used to working with the BIOS, use the Media Creation Tool and an USB Key to format the hard drive and reinstall Windows anew. If not, just select upgrade this computer and delete everything.
After everything is nuked, you can create a local administrator account with a password from random.org that you'll carefully write down on a paper, your cellphone, and possibly even on the fridge. Then, you'll create a normal user account with your grandfather's Microsoft Account. Use the administratior account to install a bunch of software.
But why the double account? This will force him to look for the difficult to remember password every time he wants to make changes to Windows, making it harder to install malware.
Google Keep also grabs text from an image.
Ito oh libre
Google keep does it, another advantage would be that it will be saved and automatically available everywhere.
I like Keep
... do you mean google keep?
Google Keep [link]
One app I like a lot, a easy to use is keep. [link]
I'm pretty sure that only works on the android sub, but here it is:
I use an Android / Windows environment, so I've been searching for a good set of programs to use that are available for free (or under $30) on my devices.
First I found:
My Life Organized - Free on Windows / Android (But one time $70 fee to upgrade both to the pro version to gain access to Projects and a number of other useful features) I was on board with this app, and prepared to buy their $10 pro version on Android, but I then noticed their Windows version was $60.
So far the suggestions in this thread are:
ToDoIst - Free on Windows / Android (But $29/year if you want to add Filters and Labels (contexts) to your items.)
Remember The Milk - Free on Windows / Android (But $25/ year if you want push notifications and advanced Syncing), but lacks a desktop application. You can access it via the web, but I'd rather have something I don't need the internet to access.
Google Keep Actually free, but only really does lists and reminders. It does lists really well though!
So I'm leaning towards Remember The Milk, but before I commit, are there any other Windows / Android programs you guys use to stay organized outside of your head?
Google Keep is really simple and easy to use for basic note/list taking.
I feel Google Keep is just as good.
I use Google Keep for android. It does exactly what you looking for.
Does your phone have a voice note app? Does it have a widget? If so try adding it (the widget or shortcut) to the lockscreen.
Google Keep, Microsoft OneNote, and Samsung Notes all can take voice notes and have widgets.
I use Google Keep and so far it's been decent. It's basically Google's OneNote equivalent, although functionally it's not 1:1.
>Quickly capture what’s on your mind and get a reminder later at the right place or time. Speak a voice memo on the go and have it automatically transcribed. Grab a photo of a poster, receipt or document and easily organize or find it later in search. Google Keep makes it easy to capture a thought or list for yourself, and share it with friends and family.
> Capture what’s on your mind
• Add notes, lists and photos to Google Keep. Pressed for time? Record a voice memo and Keep will transcribe it so you can find it later.
Share ideas with friends and family
• Easily plan that surprise party by sharing your Keep notes with others and collaborating on them in real time.
Find what you need, fast
• Color and add labels to code notes to quickly organize and get on with your life. If you need to find something you saved, a simple search will turn it up.
Always within reach
• Keep works on your phone, tablet, computer and Android wearables. Everything you add syncs across all of your devices so your thoughts are always with you.
The right note at the right time
• Need to remember to pick up some groceries? Set a location-based reminder to pull up your grocery list right when you get to the store.
• Try Google Keep on the web at [link] and find it in the Chrome Web Store at [link].
GW4 is an Android Wear watch buddy so you can download a plenty of reminders app you wish. My tip is the Google Keep

Google's Keep or Tasks
It probably came preinstalled. Just look for a yellow icon with a lightbulb. If not, install it
Utiliza o Keep do google, aqui
the web app is keep.google.com. and the Android app is here: [link]
I use a combination of Bundled and Google Keep for note taking. I use home agenda for my Google calendar widget (it doesn't support reminders). For reminders I use Google Tasks due to the simple and minimalistic interface. For emails I use Spark due to the way it seperates emails by types (personal, notifications and newsletters) using a smart inbox (and it's almost 100% free except for the teams part). For news I really like the interface provided by Flipboard (I know it's an old app, but still reliable and customizable). Here's the free version of home agenda in case you want to try it out. It's fully customizable.
Google has a great one...
Handwriting directly into Google Keep:
You can now draw in Google Keep and a 2 finger down swipe will add more pages below as you need them.(i.e. downward expandable)

The [<strong>Lenovo 500e Chromebook (2nd Gen) (11.6")</strong> | [video]]
might be worth a look at - there also is a 8GB/64GB version.

Just share the link to Google Keep with the label: ReadLater
You bet. Kinda like... this. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.keep
Pick your app.
Google keep might be useful, should your phone die or you want to access your recipes on the computer. [link]
What do you think about the Google notes?

Alternatively the Text Scanner [OCR] app works very well

Google Keep for light tasks.
I find One Note to be my go-to for integration and flexibility.
Google Keep sorts labels(aka tags) you assign alphabetically.
You could assign each exercise the appropriate tags(easy to do just type #) perhaps broken down by m/muscle e/exercise t/type
You can than easily list your desired exercises by clicking on the appropriate label.
If you wanted to list all glute exercises you can do without any weights (m.glutes & t.bodyweight) ...
...you need to do this multilabel search in an Android web browser as(not possible in app)
[above link will of course only work once you've created those labels]
Google Keep will not work for a big to-do list as it will just be displayed in its entirety for every label you click without filtering(because it would contain all the labels)
For a single big to-do list you are better off using a spreadsheet as suggested by TheCactusMan41:
Google Sheets and Sort & filter your data
"OK Google"/(or hold home button) + "Create a note"
You can use tags for organization - they will be sorted alphabetically - (just type # ) e.g. ...
[problems with some phones @ mom but works well for me]
SpeechTexter - Speech to Text (Free) stays active a long time. ... not sure yet when / if it stops listening.
Speechnotes - Speech To Text
It stops listening after only 1 minute of silence.
The premium $7.99 version allows one to adjust this from 0.5 to 30 minutes.
has a widget
Google Keep FTW --PLAY STORE LINK
If they're related to existing projects, they go in separate issues on GitLab. Otherwise, I describe my ideas in Keep.
It's a note app by Google, pretty well done. I like it a lot. Here it is.
Here's a link for ya
Here is the link: [link]
The Google Keep app comes with a widget that can create quick notes: [link]

Google's note-taking app. It's pretty nifty.
Please try Google Keep
Time-based reminders in Google Keep
Google Keep covers pretty much all of that.
But i guess it won't work if the font changing option is mandatory.
Google Keep, Twilight, Smart IR Remote, Relay for Reddit.
Sketch started in Google Keep app. Exported to Glitch! app - tweaked with the Scanner filter. Exported to DECIM8 app - tweaked with the BRAINFEED3R and BEAMRIDER filters. Slightly tweaked in Google Photos for color/contrast (via the web interface, not the app).
I use Google Keep everyday. It is free and you can use it on the Internet, Android, IOS, Google Chrome and Firefox.
I'm a Google user and this seems to work well for your problem.
I use Google Keep on my phone/tablet and works well cross platform with Google Panel View for Keep Chrome extension. You can literally be typing in your phone app and watch it write on your PC/Mac and vice versa.
Also for just quick links you find interesting while browsing the web, check out Google Save to Keep chrome extension.
I am going for Google here and Keep and Calendar helps me to some degree. Set up notifications for everything
Keep for iOS
Google keep is great for this. [link]
You can use google.com/keep on your computer too and it will sync with your app
Google Keep which alone is enough for me not to go Gear S2 Tizen, despite that tempting turning bezel. So Keep and Now keeps me in the Android corral.
Watchmaker is a have to have. There are at least 10 000 free watch faces available through the app. That's like a free watch face every day for the next 27 years. I wouldn't get an Android Wear watch if it wasn't available. Not only that but a great community of watch/watch face makers on Google+. The paid version is if you want to make your own watches, or modify existing ones, there's a FREE Watchmaker version as well, and a version if you want a wallpaper on your phone/phablet to match the wrist watch.
Then there's ClockSync to avoid clock drift and keep your watch on atomic time. For it to be automatic, though, your phone/phablet has to be rooted.
Tasker and various plug ins for that to enable tailoring and automating your device.
Then there are various remotes that I have to have, to control the HTPC, playback on Squeezeboxes, volume control on the sound system in the entire house, etc, but that may not be an area you are interested in. Finally, various work out apps.
Google Keep is a really cool way of keeping track with stuff. I have a grocery list shared with my girlfriend, and you can even make more stuff which you share:
If anyone is looking for an alternative to the note sharing feature, check out google keep :) [link]
Just share a link with Keep. That way you can open from mobile or desktop.
Google Keep. - Free
Google's take on post-it notes. Wife and I have shared to-do and shopping lists (which is a pain when you are in the grocery store looking at the list and things keep being added to it!). On Android it's got a nice widget that I have on the home screen of my phone, so I always see my daily to-do list or reminder immediately when I unlock my phone. Also accessible from any web browser. Requires Google account.
Google Keep for Android - Play Store
Google Keep for iOS - App Store
It's this: [link]
Google Keep - notes and lists
I use the lock screen function in Wear Minilauncher to keep Keep notes onscreen. It chews up the battery but if I need something for a couple of minutes it's great.
Try google keep
Keep for note taking and shopping list on your wrist
TrackID for figuring out what song is playing without having to take out your phone
Yatse - a remote control app for your XBMC / Kodi media player
Other than that I basically just use it for notifications, checking the time and controlling media playback
> Any reliable and simple alternatives?
Google Keep. User must copy or paste manually on each device, but copy/paste across devices is very reliable. Needs Internet connection.
It's difficult to pin down to one issue since it's really the sum of all of its shortcomings that makes it a disappointing experience.
Windows phone is locked down heavily like iOS, but doesn't offer a wide enough selection of apps or system features to make it usable. It's a very sparse OS.
Because of how hard it's locked down, it's necessary to install apps that add the functionality you need, but apps that add the functionality you need aren't available.
Neither google nor apple publish apps for their services like drive, play music, keep, or any of the docs apps in the store like google does on iOS, so you're forced to use all of microsoft's services unless you want to roll the dice with some hacky chinese-made half-baked browser frame app. Microsoft doesn't make a lot of great apps like Google does.
Official apps that are available often lack functionality present in android or iOS versions of the apps.
You'll find more apps that don't do what you want than apps that do what you want, there are many fewer good apps on windows mobile than there are on other platforms. There is a poor selection of apps that are actually usable. Whereas on android whatever app you download has at least some functionality, even if it's not the functionality you're looking for, there are a bunch of apps on the store that just plain do nothing at all.
All apps are super hard to find, in fact I didn't even know about wallet until half an hour ago. I've been researching W10M and the 950 XL for the past two weeks and hadn't seen it mentioned until then. I finally tracked it down and turns out it's shit
You have to install a greater number of apps to get the functionality you want. On average, individual apps have less functionality than their android or iOS equivalents. Just look at the difference between memo and keep. Some justify this as minimalism, but really the windows app just lacks functionality.
If you can't find another app to fill in for missing functionality in another app, you're going to have to do without that functionality. On android you can probably find an app from google that does what you need, on windows phone
No snapchat, vine, tinder, YouTube, Gmail, stable Instagram, pinterest, etc.
Pen and paper is infinitely more convenient and customizable than an app - if I had to use my phone I'd probably use Keep.
Could just use something like Google Keep, which has a website and an app.
Google keep for sure
