									Have you ever trapped the perfect idea but subsequently lost it because
you were unable to write it down? Or, maybe you have remembered an
important task only to later forget the task leaving it undone.

Android notepad apps to the rescue! With the recent proliferation of
smartphones using the Android operating system, busy individuals have a
new tool for keeping track of important ideas and managing tasks.

Several Android application developers have produced these notepad apps
that provide the user with a relatively painless mechanism for
documenting notes while on the go.

For instance, some Android notepad apps use widgets to allow the user to
record his idea or task directly from his Android home screen. This
prevents the user from having to open up the notepad app before starting
a new note. For example, the Note Everything apps allows a user to start
a new quick note simply by tapping the widget. This provides a great
solution for capturing a fleeting idea in a hurry.

These apps may also include checkbox functionality. This provides the
user with the option to use these checkboxes to check off accomplished
tasks. Clicking off finished responsibilities gives the user the
satisfying feeling of accomplishment. Microsoft's OneNote app allows its
users to attach a checkbox to each individual notepad item. Once attached
the checkbox remains empty until selected and subsequently filled in by
the user.

Syncing is another important feature offered by several Android notepad
applications. Syncing allows the writer of a note to sync the note with
his home computer or other devices using cloud services. The very popular
Evernote app syncs with web services such as Dropbox and enables its
users to log into the Evernote website to access their notes. Using
syncing a note writer can edit complex notes from his computer instead of
trying to update them from his Android device.

Many of these apps operate according to the freemium model. This means a
user can try the app, see if it works for him, and then decide if he
wishes to purchase it. Notepad apps such as Evernote and Catch Notes
allow users to write a certain number of notes before requiring a monthly
subscription fee. Other apps such as Microsoft OneNote charge users a
onetime fee for use after the user writes 500 notes. The previously
mentioned Note Everything application remains free to use without limits
but requires a payment of $4.19 to activate enhanced features.

These features, among others, provide Android users with the opportunity
to easily document the important occurrences and ideas that absolutely
should not be forgotten.
