Look at simplenote to take notes across multiple platforms. Android and Linux apps. Can use browser if app not installed on a system.
I looked at SimpleNote about a year ago. For some reason I did’t completely love it, although I can’t recall why just now. Maybe the notes required network access to use? I want to be able to see my notes even if I’m offline (although they wont synchronize, of course). I need to take another look at SimpleNote. It’s done by the WordPress folks, right?
