    >>>CURRENT. Since the announced death of Springpad I've been looking for a replacement, until now I think I have found it with OneNote.

    logantauranga: I've started using OneNote recently and it's actually good. The first version for Android in early 2012 was bad so I was put off for a while, but now it's better and I use it to sync between my home PC, tablet, and phone. I prefer it over Evernote because you don't get data-capped on a free account; the limit is having 500 notes, which is plenty. I can add pictures or camera shots directly, and audio recordings as well. Basically they saw what other apps were doing on mobile and tried to catch up. I used Google Keep for a while but it doesn't have a comprehensive interface like OneNote on the PC does. Keep's like a bunch of Post-it notes, whereas OneNote is more like a set of binders. My only beef with it is that it feels a bit gimped/simplified on mobile compared to on the desktop. If anyone's tried something that has a bigger feature set, let me know.

    I like it :) Though, MS still has a lot of polishing to do.
