Out of office series: note app

postit junkie

 

As part of my series of “out of office” I will be reviewing note taking apps for my phone and tablet.
When I am in my office, I use post-it notes and my computer for making and keeping notes organized, although I am a post-it note junkie. As I find myself out of the office more lately, I have found this system to be in need of a revamp. As such I will be reviewing note taking apps, looking for one that meets my needs and expectations.

Needs/Expectations:
Phone and tablet sync
Homepage widget
Ability to make notes, take pictures and record audio
Speech to text
Ability to organize notes

Other features I would like:
Video notes
Ability to set note color
Sync calendar with notes
Location marking ability
Handwriting notes

Out of Office Series: Task List App

As my job duties take me out of the office more, I find myself in need of better task list management. In my office I have printed checklists everywhere, I keep scratch paper stacked everywhere to constantly prioritize tasks, in my constant quest for increased productivity. So, I am seeking a task list manager that can handle my needs, and help me as I travel more often.
I am going to be reviewing task list apps, in my search for the perfect one for my needs.

Needs:
Phone and tablet sync
Home page widget for quick access
Recurring task feature
Tasks and subtasks
Notes section on tasks/subtasks
Alerts for priority tasks
Email capability of tasks and reminders

Extras:
Ability to change color of tasks
Clean UI

Please comment with apps you think I should try or leave your feedback for apps I review.
