Evernote’s Competition: AK Notepad and Catch Notes (Video)
After watching my video on the Evernote App for Android one of our viewers suggested I look into an app called AK Notepad, powered by Catch.com.
This app follows the Unix mantra “do one thing, and do it well”. It’s a very simple note taking app. It lets you title your notes, add inline tags to help you categorize and find your notes later (just preface them with an octathorpe, the “#” symbol to turn the word into a tag), syncs with your Catch.com account — and that’s it. It’s fast, it’s sleek, and it gets the job done. It can’t, however, compete with Evernote‘s ability to save voice and picture notes.
That’s where the Catch Notes app comes in to play. Catch looks a lot like Evernote, and lets you do pretty much everything that you can with Evernote. What’s more, it syncs with your Catch.com account too, so notes are accessible in either app — though AK Notepad can only display the text notes.
Both apps, and signing up for Catch.com are free. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
