App Review: AK Notepad and MyBackup

myTouchApps-AKNotepad1-200x300Ever since I purchased my G1, I’ve been using these two applications in tandem.  AK Notepad is your basic, no-nonsense note pad that gives you multiple themes, auto links for e-mail addresses and URLs, and LED/vibrate notification.

The beautiful part comes from using MyBackup.  If you move between devices or are obsessive about backing up your notes (I am because I frequently use encoded messages to remember various passwords), you should consider it too.


I use the free version of MyBackup to backup and restore my AK Notes and my browser bookmarks (among many other data), especially handy if you wipe a device to get it ready for a new ROM.  However, AK Notepad works well on its own as it features an export/import feature to your SD card for quick use.

These apps compliment one another very well and are very user friendly.  While there are many similar apps like these in the Android Market, most of us are looking for quality and not quantity.  These offer both.
