Catch Notes is my favorite notes app for Android, and it’s also one of the apps I use most often regardless of category. I know that there are several excellent apps for transferring links and other information between your phone and your desktop computer and vice versa, but Catch Notes is so convenient to use for this purpose that I haven’t felt the need for a standalone solution.
Sorry if this tip seems too obvious and basic to write a post about, but hopefully some people will find it useful.
Let’s say I’m using Twitter for Android on my HTC Desire and I see a tweet with a link to a YouTube video that intrigues me, but I want to watch it on my computer later. I just swipe right, hit the Share button, select Catch from the top of the list, tap Save and I’m back in Twitter: it literally only takes two seconds. On my computer, I just need to click the Catch icon in my browser’s toolbar and I’ll have access to all my notes via a convenient web interface.
Likewise, if I’m using my Android’s browser and discover a website that I want to continue to check out on my computer later on, I just longpress the address bar (or an actual link) and select Share page from the pop-up menu to send it to Catch on the web.
It naturally also works the other way around: if I want to send a link to my phone, I can just paste the link into the web interface and access it via Catch on my handset. The app even lets us add #hashtags in order to categorize the links. I use Catch Notes for this purpose every day, and it’s one of my favorite things about the app. Catch Notes naturally also provides a great way for saving regular notes, and it also supports audio and images. The app is available for free in the Market.
