Google Keep Alternative



This is really bugging me. I often tried finding a good alternative to Google Keep. It should just be a nice app where I can jot down notes. Nothing fancy. It doesn’t even have to sync to my laptop. Preferable open source. What would you recommend?


What features are you looking for?

because one of the better parts of keep is the way you can spatially organize the notes.


It does not even require that functionality. I use notes primarily to jot down thoughts which I then later discard. So the main feature for me is that it enables me to take notes easily.

Preferably like:

  • Open app
  • write note
  • close app


If for an iDevice, have you checked out the pre-installed “Notes” app?


I’m actually looking for an alternative on Android :thinking:
