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)
