  1. I tried about 30 note taking, tasks and outliner apps for Android – all the top ones. Some of the note apps are quite good, but don’t support hierarchies (just Notepads and Notes). Outliners do support hierarchies but I couldn’t find a decent one for Android. So, we had to develop our own Notes and Tasks app – Memability. Check it out on Google Play Store – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=au.com.ds.ma – it’s FREE. For more details visit http://memability.com
