Note apps that you can download from?

After some bad experiences with the built-in QuickMemo+ I am looking for a replacement app with similar functionality. Most importantly, I would like an app that allows downloading my notes in a non-proprietary format (i.e. zip, txt, doc) in addition to syncing to a cloud.

The auto-sizing tile display feature like QuickMemo+ has would also be very nice to have because it really helps me see at a glance the short simple notes vs. the long more detailed notes.

Of course free would be nice but I would certainly pay for a great app that does everything right 😄

Many thanks for your help!

Depending on level of complexity you want, in increasing order: Google Keep>Evernote>OneNote. Evernote and OneNote is pretty close. I haven't found one between Keep and Evernote in terms of complexity though ever since Springpad bit the dust.

Of course, Keep, Evernote and OneNote are all proprietary formats.

If you want to keep individual note-looking notes, handwriting, pictures, anything of that sort, there's no non=proprietary format for a document of that sort. If just words are enough, any text editor that saves .txt files will do (although, since the phone is running on Linux [Android is a program, not an OS], the newline character is a line feed, without the "return" character, you'd need an editor that reads files with Linux newlines if you want to read the notes on a PC and you run Windows).

But anything non-standard (even Word) isn't "non-proprietary format". (zip is just a container - you put txt, doc, whatever files into it. Even zipping a single file is zipping another file into a zip container.) If you'll put up with .docx files, any of the apps that can handle Word files will do.
