Android comes under Google and it has millions of applications on Google Play and other third party resources. Using an Android device is look like someone is teaching you about anything. Do you want a music player? Just go to Google Play, make search and download it. That’s all! But choosing of the best thing has become pretty tough now since you can get so many substitutes to any application. To get rid of this problem, today I am going to share my reviews of top 4 though capturing apps for Android.
Top 4 Android note taking apps:
Google Keep :
If you are really looking for a note taking app, Google Keep ought to be your first preference since this is produced by Google, the best web company out there. I always like a minimalist look but it doesn’t mean to cut out any important feature. Google Keep is one of the best note taking apps which comes with few but useful options. You can easily capture your thoughts by making use of this fabulous Android application which is smoothly running on Android 4.0 and later versions.
You can add note by typing or by voice command or by capturing pictures. Means you can add image in your note so that you can understand them better in future.
Google Keep could be handled online and it is synchronized with Google Drive. I have been using this service for a long while. Setting of the reminder is very easy with Google Keep. On other end, you can make different color for each note so that you can check them faster.

Actually Any.Do is a to-do list manager but it works great like a note taking apps since note taking is linked with to do list. You can either sign up with Facebook or you can create Any.Do account so that it will be handled later from PC. In fact some features of this application are quite similar to Google Keep. Means, it will be type-less (Voice Command) and it is possible to set reminder according to your requirements.
The other great feature is Any.Do is shaking. This means that you can remove all completed task by just shaking. It is also great in terms of appearance and handling. You can change the theme, show or hide status bar and so on. Any.Do notes also can be backed up on their servers but it requires sign up.
The last and vivid feature is Google Glass, a wearable gadget. I mean you can access your Google Glass through this Android application.
You know that Evernote is another great web company which has developed several apps like Skitch, Evernote, Evernote Clearly and more others. You can add tech, checklist, picture and other attachments and synchronize online so that you can access them from anywhere.
Although Evernote is free to use but they also provide premium account to take notebooks for offline access, edit user’s notebooks and so on.
Just like other note taking apps, you can also set reminders. Generally only few apps allow user to make bold or italic their words and Evernote is one of them. If you want to add geo location, just navigate to the options under add new note arena and choose your location. This is best in terms of decorating a single note as you can embed bold/italic/underlined words, checklist, bullets and more others those are unavailable on most of the apps like Google Keep or Any.Do.
The next feature is Password Locking system. Means, you can set 4-digit PIN to protect your notes from being accessed by anyone else except you.
OneNote is being developed by Microsoft, world’s largest software company. One Note is good for those phones which are running on Android 4.0 or later versions. Like other note taking apps, you can add image in your note and this is possible to add note using voice as well. I just mentioned that Evernote has bullets, numbering etc. in add new note arena and all of them are also available on OneNote.
You can synchronize your notes with SkyDrive so that all notes will be backed up correctly. All you need to do is sign in with your Windows account.
