whats a good "to do" app and "memo" app?
new to android from treo, Loving my Evo. Are there any apps similiar to the "to do " and "memo" like the treo has? or even like the pre.
I'm trying astrid, but it isn't simple basic "to do" list like I would like.
Haven't really looked hard yet for a "memo" app. Would I be better off using a doc app?

To-Do lists, I'd give Astrid another shot but also look at Remember the Milk.com, which syncs with Astrid. RTM can also sync with Google Mail and/or Calendar so you don't need another interface and are not limited to interaction only through your phone. Astrid syncs well with Pure Calendar - one of the few apps/widgets good enough for me to shell out some dough for. RTM and Astrid are both free.
For Memos, you might want to look at Evernote. It syncs with its own desktop app and accepts voice, photo. web clip, or standard notes/memos. Very deep and useful. And free.Palm Treo 755 --> Rooted Droid Eris --> Rooted HTC Thunderdud & a Google Nexus 7

I use a To Do app called "Got To Do". It works well and it has a nice little widget that comes with it so you can keep your To Do list on your screen all the time. I use it for my bills payment dates. It's nice because you can set them up to occur every month and when you check them off they automatically set up for next month without having to do anything else.
I use Mobisle Notes for a note pad. It works well and I love how it backs up your notes to you SD card so you never lose them when installing roms or upgrading the program.

I am looking for a notepad/to do list app that will allow me to perform an action on a phone number (ex. Text or Call) based on a user option.
A few I have tried only allow you to call the number and offer no option to text directly from the application.
Does anyone know of an application with this feature?

Coming from original Palm OS myself, I really like Note Everything by SoftXperience. Very simple UI (some who like fanicier may find it too simple), but you can make your own catagories for notes, etc. Just gives you a simple, lined "sheet" of paper to enter your note. Looks much like the old Palm-type note. You can export the notes to the SD card (or import them), send them by text or email, set reminders for them, encrypt them (Pro Version only, I think), "stick" them to the notification bar, record voice notes, make "paint" notes, photo-notes. I found the program well worth paying the slight fee for the Pro Version (although the developer also offers a free one with fewer features).
(I still haven't found simple To-Do I'm happy with yet...)

I originally had Astrid / RTM combination but had a problem with repeating tasks "disappearing" the day they came due. Actually they just jumped ahead to the next occurrence leaving no reminder and nothing for me to check off. Support didn't seem terribly interested in fixing.

I like Our Groceries for shopping lists and to do/checklists. No date options but can't beat it for checklist type stuff. It syncs to their own servers and it is available across a lot of platforms. My wife and I can have the same task list or shopping lists all the time. The sync is instant (and I mean instant) which is a huge benefit.
