Google notes: The classic

Under note taking apps is Google notes a real classic. The app owes its great popularity to the clear structure and the practical link with the Google account. The constant data synchronization ensures that your notes are retained even if you change devices.

The notes are created directly on the start page. Colored markings and the addition of pictures make them easier for you to distinguish. However, there is no assignment to fixed categories. In Google notes you can also take handwritten notes or sketches and record voice memos that are automatically transcribed by Google. Unfortunately, the app doesn't offer any protective measures such as passwords. Sensitive data should therefore not be stored here.
