I would like to organize ideas and quotes and being able to access them online and from devices.


  • Ability to attach tags/categories to cards
  • Available online and from Android
  • Full-text search
  • Simple: not overloaded with functionality that I won't use. So it's not like Trello, or more elaborate systems for writing documents/wikis

Google Keep fits the bill exactly, but I cannot use it because I already use Google Keep for some quite different purpose and don't want to mix these use-cases. (Too bad Google Keep doesn't have a notion of "spaces". But, maybe I'll opt in to create a separate Google account just for this purpose.)


For now, I'm actually getting away with a single Google Keep account, assigning all the existing notes (which are not index cards or quotes) with a specific tag. It makes the home, unfiltered view of all notes a mess, but this doesn't appear to be a problem yet because in Google Keep it's easy to filter notes by label.

This approach would probably be harder if I used labels for that my original use-case for Google Keep, but luckily I didn't.
