Nice, does exactly what it says. Just wondering if there is some way to add a picture or some type of display? The picture or display would be a very valuable thing to have although I know you're trying to keep this basic, but the term "basic" changes as needs change. Also it would really be nice if when we pushed the edit key, for the entire memo or checklist to not shift all the way to the bottom. I seldom need to add, I almost always need to change something Midstream which is now lost and has to be searched for over again... Oh, a search mechanism would be perfect. Something where you type in a word and it finds it in the listing. However, despite these, it's a great app, a bit quirky if you are adding things via voice to text, as it will sometimes close inadvertently on my LG v20, but a good app that I am going to keep

I keep all of my reminders, lists, names to remember, favorite quotes, etc on this app. I have had a series of mini strokes and it helps me remember, and very importantly, it is very easy to use! Love that it has choices of text, lists, voice & one more i can't remember right now. Plus you can share each item with others very easily; i.e. shopping lists, to-do lists, inspirational quotes, and much more. I have been using it for years and I highly recommend this app!

Best note taking program on Android I've ever had. If you like windows ability to make folders and categorize things than you'll love this app. Write Now has plenty of folders and sub folders you can make and change to catagorise everything. And this can back up to your SD card if you want to take whole layout and everything to a new phone. I haven't found any other app that can do all that. Works perfect for me. Love it.
