What product do you use for taking notes on web/mobile?

Sometimes I use Gmail's draft, sometimes sticky notes, what do you recommend?

    Note taking gets even simpler

    It's easy to capture content in multiple formats (e.g. text notes, photos, bookmarks, screenshots, emails...) and on multiple platforms. This makes Evernote perfect as a virtual in tray. It's then very easy to categorize reference files in notebooks. I also use the Evernote email feature to send notes to my task manager (Sendtask). This way notes are converted into tasks with a due date. The best system I've found is to capture everything that comes to mind or you need to revisit later in Evernote. Then frequently go through your Evernote "Inbox" notebook (everyone needs one!) and clear off all notes in it. They will generally go in one of three places: 1) Your calendar; 2) Your task manager; 3) Stay in Evernote. It's one of the few apps I pay for.

    +1 here, I also really like the fact that I can instantly photocopy any document and include it in emails right away.

    I use Google Keep for quick notes, and Google Docs for things I'm already working on and want to keep structured. Google Keep makes it super easy to share your notes and review them inside of Google Docs when you need them.

    Possibly the best tool to use if you're already locked into the Google apps ecosystem. Love the fact that it syncs with my account and I can access it across my devices. The ability ti share notes and review them inside Google Docs is an added bonus. : )
    Since you probably have a Google Account, Keep is the best option for you. It will sync with your account and access it from anywhere.

    Take better notes, your way

    Recently I've been using my phone for basically everything - I just find it easier to have one device where all my apps are stored, so I try to only download applications that are actually useful. One app that I use for note-taking it NoteLedge (Kdan Mobile). I use it for taking casual notes, creating to-do lists (that I later add to my Google calendar), and brainstorming. Every once in a while I also edit PDFs with it (but I have a different app that I use for most of my PDF editing). NoteLedge is fairly easy to use and it gets the job done.

    For the longest time I've been using the notes app on my phone, but I wasn't able to do everything I wanted to (easy organization, journaling, etc.) So I've done some research and chose this app (NoteLedge), and so far I'm quite happy with it. I can organize my notes/journal entries easily and I use the web-clipper tool if I'm working on a presentation or something. Overall, a useful app in many ways.

    This app works for notes on mobile and notebook/desktop or tablet. I use it on all my devices for various things. On my phone, I take notes, on my tablet I sketch (with the Apple Pencil), and on my desktop I create to-do lists for the week and organize my files. But all these things (besides sketching) can be done interchangeably, so it's actually quite convinient.

    Notational and Notational Velocity, two separate apps, but same core concept, are the most enjoyable note taking apps I've used. Notational Velocity is OS X only, but Notational is a web app. The organization is top notch, and it's distraction free.

    The Google Docs apps for mobile are now *really* good and have replaced Evernote as my go-to note taking app. Their quick to open, provide a range of formatting options, have a simple and clean interface and sync everything seamlessly.

    A limited edition notebook for makers

    I still prefer handwritten notes since I retain the information better than typing them in an app. I can give notes and important action items greater emphasis with handwriting than I can by typing. For what it's worth, if I feel a need to retain a note long term, then I will import it into Evernote.
