    "There's been this wonderful thing that lets you take notes during a call already - it's called pen and paper! Heck, if you have an iPad, you can transfer the call to that and write notes using the pad. Same thing on an Android tablet - why make this more confusing and all more clutter apps to your phone?"

    "So when I want to take a note, I want to get the info down where it jumps out in my face and reminds me what I gotta do! And I do not want to dilly dally around with texting it to myself. This solution actually works...say it, forget it, and remember it later...that is what I want and what I get. Try it ...you will like it. "

    "This would be better suited to be marketed for making notes while surfing the internet. Most times people are on the computer and need to take a note, they will open notepad. This product is better suited for Internet surfing, since you have the browser open at that time."

    "Google keep is an app on the google play store that uses your phones mic to take notes and reminders. It sends a notification on the phone when the time is right for a reminder. It doesn't email or text though. I would say that since it uses the phones mic to take the notes, I don't think it will work for taking notes during a call. The only way it could work is if you were on the call on another phone. This doesn't address the problem."

    "I'm not that impressed with one note. I guess they just want to fancy up things, but I've downloaded better ones from other sites to be honest. This should just stay basic and left as is. Not really anything to say about it. Now if you like it go for it. It's just not something I like in general."

    #6Keep My Notes

    Keep My Notes

    Easy & simple notepad that you can use for quick note taking, to write a diary or as a private notebook. It is really useful when it comes to shopping list, as it provides tools to make sure you don't miss a thing.

    "The graphics do indicate that it is a simple, quick note taking app without having to do much reading. I can see that people like it based on the review number. The purpose of it being for writing a diary, or private notebook is completely lost, there is no indication of either of those things in any of the text or images. The images do show a task list capability that also isn't mentioned anywhere. There's a disconnect here between the problem and solution."
