I tried Evernote for a little while, but I couldn't get past the fact
that its Android widget did not honor line breaks, so all of my lists
ran together like freeform text. I uninstalled it a week later. I've
been using ColorNote ever since. It doesn't have nearly the feature
set of Evernote, but it stores things in plain files which I then backup
to my desktop using rsync.
