Yesterday Google released their first note taking app called Keep in the Play Store. Unfortunately like other Google apps, Keep is not available on the Kindle Fire. In order to get it you would need to root your Kindle Fire and sideload the apps. That’s sometimes more than people are willing to do. So today we cover some of the top note taking apps that are available on the Kindle Fire from the Amazon Appstore.
Evernote is by far one of the best and most popular note taking apps on Android and the web. It’s for good reasons since you can do so much with Evernote. The app lets you take any type of notes and you can attach audio, video, images, and files. You can organize notes by folders and everything is searchable. The app has a great new design with cards stacks that lets you easily move between notes and notebooks. Another great function is the sync across all devices including the web version. Basically you can have access to your notes anywhere and anytime. There is also a Chrome plugin that let’s you clip anything from the web to your notes. If you are serious about note taking then this is a must have app.

2. ColorNote Notepad Notes
Sometimes we are looking for simplicity and something that’s very familiar. Most of us have used the traditional color sticky notes that end up on documents, paper, and fridges as a reminder. The ColorNote app tries to bring some of that old familiarity in new digital age. You can create simple color notes with the addition of to-do and checklist note formats. Although there is no sync capabilities, notes can be shared via e-mail or social network. There is also note reminders in status bar as well. Great options for those looking for a simple but effective note reminds.

3. Handrite Notes Notepad Pro
There are cases where type written notes just won’t do it and you need handwritten notes. One of the better apps for handwritten notes is definitely Handrite Notes. In this app you can take handwritten notes using your hand or stylus. I would highly recommend a stylus if you want to take good notes. But you can mix type written notes with the handwritten notes as well. There are tons of options for paper background, color, line width, and more. There are options to share your notes as image files with email, Evernote, or any app on your device. You can take a look at a video of the app in action here.

5. GNote – Note Everything
GNote app is in the style of Evernote in that it will let you take many type of notes. You can have simple notes but add images, audio, video, and more. You can even take handwritten notes as well as this app does it all. But the main feature that makes this app different is that it sync with your Gmail account. Once you setup your account then all your notes will sync under the label ‘Notes” in your Gamil account. This is a great option who are heavy Gmail users and want their notes along with their email.
