Remember is pretty basic. Also, it seems completely device side only. (Yes, it's meant to be sync-able with Evernote. But that 'functionality' is a running joke. It doesn't work.

I never had any problems with Evernote-sync, since the early BB10 days.
Would really know the differences, from someone who knows both.

It has a feature that allows you to keep some notes private by securing with a password. In that respect, advantage Noted.

Addict for 10 years, but it may be time to get off this drug.

Looks good. I've often wondered why the dev who makes this one doesn't tap Evernote api. After all, they've no hope of competing right now, unless EN completely fux up from now on...

Have been using Noted for a long time! Excellent. I am the queen of to-do lists but I find Noted very handy to draft letters, lists, anything to remember and it is simple and straight forward. Click and type and save. Done.
Also, the alphabetized list is excellent at letting me choose which list I need immediately.

Noted is my top list app!

It would make sense to me if they did. But I don't think Noted taps Evernote api.

besides a password setting, why buy this over Evernote? i like the fact that on Evernote i can move my notes around and place them into notebooks, not just categories. If i want to just make a simple note, i just use Remember. I do like the DropBox/Box integration though... but we have that already.
