ColorNote Comments

Good simple interface

Comment by Thelle
about ColorNote Dec 2012

I like the simple interface and sync for my quick random notes (don't want to use evernote for that - I use that for more complete notes), but I need an app that let my access my simple short notes online on my computer as well as on my mobile devices..


Sync & use notes offline: Memonic+Upvise, not ColorNote or Evernote

Comment by em4020
about ColorNote and Upvise, Memonic, Evernote Jul 2011

If you want to sync your notes with your desktop computer and edit the notes also sometimes offline, you must use Upvise or Memonic instead of ColorNote Notepad Notes, which cannot sync notes and has only an english user interface, and which is only available for Android.
Upvise can also sync notes with Windows Mobile devices, but most strings are not translated to german, Memonic is available in many languages, but not for Windows Mobile devices.
Both Upvise and Memonic can be used offline with syncing the notes next time, when an internet-connection is available again.
If you need no offline-access to your notes but availability on all platforms, Evernote is the best note-app for you.
