Must-have Android apps, according to Donovan Colbert

Evernote

"One of the strangest things is that Google Docs doesn't have an app and doesn't support mobile browsers very well – for iOS or Android. If it did, I'd be very happy. But since it doesn't, I use Evernote a lot more frequently.

"Evernote is a cross-platform, web-based application that allows you to take notes. I use it for capturing blog ideas, leaving myself messages, taking photos with information I want to get back to later and other similar tasks. I've even written a couple complete blogs using it on my iPad with a Bluetooth keyboard.

"The image shows the meat of Evernote. You can take a snapshot, upload a file, write a text note, or record an audio note - and then pick it up later from an iOS device or from a desktop by browsing to the Evernote site. Simple and effective."
