One of the minor things I find annoying about Android is that there's no stock note app. I never understood how all the dumbphones and featurephones I had in the past 5 years had a note "app," but when I upgraded to my first Android device, I was dumbfounded to find that Android lacked anything similar.

I have no problems with apps such as Remember The Milk as they do the task quite well. Still, a recurring cost of $25/yr strikes me as a bit absurd for something so simple - not to mention, I'm a fan of supporting the little guy.

Enter Epistle - to quote the item's description:

Epistle is a simple text editor that can sync all your notes with Dropbox.

Recent changes:
* Fixed nasty bug that prevented proper synchronization and caused app crash
* Fixed minor bugs
* Added quick 'new note' shortcut

Latest version: 0.1.1 (for all Android versions)

Despite being such an early release, it seems that most of the major kinks have been worked out. The dev has been closely watching the comments on the XDA-Devs thread and the market comments, and has been very quick to address issues.

Sound like your cup o' tea? You know what to do:

    Check AK Notepad! It's simple, free and syncs to the Cloud...

    I checked both Epistle and AK Notepad out in the AppBrain Market and both look good.

    One major difference so far, AK Notepad charges $1.99 for the ability to sync.

    So if Epistle is free & sync's while Epistle is free BUT, charges to sync I will give Epistle a chance first. Especially since you only get 15 minutes to evaluate and get a refund if you don't like it. Not enough time to determine if the sync works well enough.
