Android equivalent of Apple 'Notes'

Hi all I've been using Apple's built-in 'Notes' app on OSX Mavericks as well as my iPod Touch and I love it because it's easy and fast for me to create notes that I can look at later. However, I just bought an Android tablet and iCloud isn't available for it.

Also, I'm wanting to begin using a cloud photo sharing service/app so that I can look at my photos on all of my devices: an iPod Touch, Mac, Windows and Android tablet.

Please help me!

OI Notepad is an easy and practical note app and it's free.

As for photo sharing, nothing better than Dropbox and the automatic camera upload to the cloud; it really is great but of course you need Dropbox on all your devices to view the photos.

Google Keep and Google+ photos are the official ones but I don't use either.

Write Now - Notepad is an app that lets you open from a hotspot on your screen so you can write notes on top of whatever application you're using at the time or from any screen. Like popup sticky notes.

I'm spoiled with my HTC and it's Evernote version... you can install that on several platforms, including Windows.

As sharing goes, I'd say dropbox too.

I use Google Keep - it's very basic compared to most other note-taking/keeping apps I've used (including Evernote). I'm sticking with it for now partly because I don't need all the bells and whistles of other apps, and partly because of hopes that it will one day integrate with Google Tasks and/or Calendar (both of which I use) like it currently does with Google Now.

I agree about the power of Google and I am using Google Keep.
For a simple Note Taking App I used Color Note.

My vote goes to Google Keep for notes. I used to use Note Everything, which was a great offline option, but sharing was not possible, and there was no desktop client. I then migrated to Evernote, but when they restricted the free version, I moved to Keep. I never liked EN's cluttered interface anyway. I liked Keep so much that I recently moved my to do's there as well, using colours to differentiate them from notes. Keep is not the world's best todo app, but for notes I think it's great.

Recommend trying Microsoft's Onenote. It works fantastic on Android, iOS, and PC, been using it for years and it finally replaced everything else I used to use, including Evernote and Google Keep.

It also kind of depends how you plan to use the app. For example, if I were just doing short little checklists, reminders, brief unrelated scraps of info, etc., Google Keep is great at that and easy to use. If you need a more complex, note-taking app in which you can structure the content with a visual/logical layout, and with tags, you probably want something like Onenote. It's great for academics, for collecting research from many sources, for writing, and for collaborating among teams (multiple team members and view and collaboratively edit the same page at the same time). I basically use Onenote now for everything. I add Onenote web clipper add-in's to the Chrome and Firefox browsers I use, this lets me clip all or part of any web article (the URL, or the actual contents) directly to my Onenote notebook in the cloud, which then auto-syncs across all my devices.

OneNote is nice, but it doesn't have labels/tags on the mobile version, which is why I went with Google Keep instead.
Keep lacks the hierarchy structure of OneNote, but multi-dimensional labeling is more important for me, as I find that items tend to belong to more than one category. Incidentally, this is the biggest issue with the Windows folder structure as well, and we recently moved all our work files to Sharepoint which allows labelling.

I agree. I stopped using Evernote because

OneNote is free for Microsoft Office licence holders (not sure if you don't have an office licence)

and because I find OneNote much better at handling notes in a hierarchical structure. This last bit was crucial for me: navigating and finding stuff among multiple evernote notebooks was much less efficient.

Evernote is, instead, much better for web clippings.

Another vote here for Google Keep. It is fantastic. Has all kinds of useful features and you can collaborate with other Keep users on it. On my desktop computers (Windows and Ubuntu) I use Chrome to also set Keep up as a web app that I can simply run like any other app on my computer. I like using it that way. All of your Keep stuff is available if you ever need to log in using someone else's computer as well since it is all cloud based.

For photo management and sharing I vote for Google Photos. I use it on both my Android and iOS devices for mobile and once again as a web app on all of my desktop computers. Tons of features. Available everywhere. Easy sharing. Great automated features.
