Simplenote brings its ultra-fast note taking app to Android

    “ultra-fast”, hm. I really like Evernote, I use it a lot, but adding a new note is not as quick as I’d like it to be.

      Some note taking apps really make you work for it. I want to just press “new” or “+” and make a note. Google Keep is good for that. Just has crazy permissions for a note taking app.

    Not bad. Todo.txt does the same but with additional sync options (dropbox support) and the ability to run at startup.

    I don’t know why these apps never get it right? There must be a widget that takes one page of the homescreen, so I could just scribble my idea there then swipe up and the note goes to the app storage, leaving the widget empty and ready for taking the next note.

    trust me, this “ultra-fast note taking app” isn’t gonna be so ultra-fast on android, even with an inevitable snapdragon 1000 (64-bit?) running the show, as android is based off java, so code has to be compiled in real time, which is an inherent disadvantage to any android-developed software versus iOS and to an extent WP8 (sadly many program are developed in .NET, another compiled-in-real-time language)
