Google Keep

A digital "scratchpad" note-taking application for the Android mobile operating system that serves as Google's answer to Apple's Notes app for Apple iOS mobile devices. Google Keep debuted in March 2013 via Google Play for devices running Android 4.0.3 ("Ice Cream Sandwich") and later.

Google Keep enables users to collect photos and notes, write down to-do lists, store voice recordings, organize notes and details, and more.  Google Keep offers a streamlined and simplistic interface that makes it simple for users to access their stored content.

One benefit that Google Keep offers over competing offerings is that all of its information is synced between Android devices while also being accessible by a PC or another device via Google Drive.
