Narrate Makes Note Taking Efficient and Beautiful

Technology has put life on the fast track. Whether its travelling to multiple places or meeting multiple people, the amount of things we can fit into our schedules has increased tenfold with the advent of innovation. Sometimes, there comes a time when you need to take notes, be it an observation or a reminder or just idle thoughts. Earlier, note taking was done in diaries or on pieces of paper but that process was outed by digital note apps due to their efficiency and simplicity.

While most manufacturers have their own flavor of certain apps, Android isn’t complete without third party apps. In the spirit of providing such an alternative to apps like S Note and Google Keep, XDA Junior Member ohcrapitstim has developed Narrate, a journal and notebook app. Narrate is packed with features borne of out-of-the-box-thinking, such as markdown support, Dropbox sync, note statistics and Google Now integration, all complemented by an appealing Material Design-esque interface. All of this results in an easy to use notepad app that is also quite innovative and aesthetically appealing.

Head over to the Narrate application thread to get started with a unique flavor of note taking, a worthy alternative to the popular note taking apps out there.

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
