Contrary to their names, notepad apps often take a few seconds to find and then another few more to open up and browse. Those seconds, however, can make a crucial difference when jotting down points from meetings or other important discussions. However, here is at least one notepad app that focuses heavily on speed and accessibility.

It has standard organization features like color coding and custom labels. These notes can be turned into scheduled reminders as well. However, the notes you make can also be placed directly on the drop-down menu as a permanent shortcut! You can also access this virtual notepad in the same way. There is even an additional encryption feature, allowing you take down more confidential information without the risk of someone opening these notes by accident. Now, your phone can really start feeling like a tool for writing down vital details in quick meetings and presentations.

▲ Organize notes via color coding, custom labels and more.

▲ Pin them directly onto the drop-down menu and review them instantly.

To start, simply tap a category: Create a typed memo, a checklist, a drawing, a voice recording, or a photo. Upload a picture, or take one with a built-in camera! Use vector-based drawing tools to color on an existing image without affecting it: you can undo, redo, or move parts of your sketch any time.

▲ Quickly access your multimedia notes with a simple tap in a built-in visual browser.<br>

▲ Create checklists; entries can auto-complete based on common items, such as groceries.

▲ Add or take photos, and then edit them with a vector-based drawing tool and comments.

Worried about being overwhelmed by a massive pile of notes and pictures? Utilize a smart search! Tag your notes to later locate them by type, label, or category. Change the browser to view entries as a collage or item-by-item in a single, scrollable page. Find what you need in two quick taps!

Whether you are grocery shopping or writing the next great novel, don’t let inspiration or necessity pass you by: type it, sketch it, or snap a photo!
