2. Sticky Note

Sticky Note

Sticky Note is one of the easiest to use Note taking apps for Android. It basically acts as a home screen widget for your Android device. You can easily add notes to the home screen of your device by using this app, all you have to do is to access the Widgets page of your Android device, and long press and drag either Sticky Note 1×1 or Sticky Note 2×2 from the list of widgets onto your home screen. 1×1 is the smaller sized widget (for notes with little text) and 2×2 is the larger sized widget. As soon as you drag the widget to the home screen, you will be asked to enter a Note title and the Note contents, after which the note will appear as a Sticky Note widget on your home screen.

4. Note Everything

Note Everything Options

Note Everything has a slightly unique twist to it. This Android app not only allows you to take down simple text notes, but it also allows you to create voice notes (allows you to record sound and save it as a note), paint notes (paint notes allow you to draw stuff), take notes from barcode (by scanning barcodes or QR codes, it saves the barcode data as note) or fetch a note from your Google Docs id. All of this can be accomplished via the + button in the app and then choosing the type of note that you wish to create. All created notes appear on the main screen of the app, and deleting the notes is pretty easy by long pressing them and choosing the delete option. You can also search for a note via the app’s inbuilt search bar.

5. Handrite Note

Handrite Options

Handrite Note is a free Android app that allows you to take down notes on your Android device in your own handwriting. The app has a very simple interface, allowing you to simply click on the + button at the top to open up a new pad where you can write down a note in your handwriting. When you save a note, the saved note appears on the homepage of the app, and can be viewed in full screen mode by tapping on its thumbnail. You can also create a notebook via the options menu by clicking on Create Notebook button through which you can combine multiple notes that you have written into one pad. The app is extremely easy to operate and I love it for its ease of use. The app also allows you to configure the stroke width, etc. options via the settings.
