Simplenote
Universal

Description

Simplenote is an easy way to keep notes, lists, ideas and more. Your notes stay in sync with all your devices for free.

The Simplenote experience is all about speed and efficiency. Open it, write some thoughts, and you're done. As your collection of notes grows, you can search them instantly and keep them organized with tags and pins. You can also share notes and publish them for other people.

The best way to learn about Simplenote is to try it. You'll be asked to create an account. This allows your notes to be backed up online and synchronized automatically.

After you sign up, try creating some notes! Then go to simplenote.com to download Simplenote for your other devices.

I use this daily in conjunction with Notational Velocity for Mac. Sync is nearly flawless and it's fast. Occupies my home screen.

I like using this with Notational Velocity on my Mac. Still trying to decide if I should be using Evernote instead.
