Sparx's suggestions seem pretty good. Here are a few more (also untested): Genial Handwriting MyLetter (this one seems if-y) Graffiti for Android (very cool if it works because it converts the handwritten notes to text)

There's an app called Epistle that seems to fit the bill.

Well, I don't know a specific application for this specific task. But you can use the built-in camera to record a video (obviously with audio) without unlock the phone. Most devices have the function to take a picture without unlocking (camera-button, sliding, shaking etc). On the camera screen you can change from picture mode to video record easily.

Untested by me, but check out: Finger Letter handwriting There's also HandwritingNote, but it seems a bit limited. QMemo also seems like an alternative, based on what you require.

RepliGo Reader ($5) allows you to copy text and to make annotations. Also, if you convert them to epubs the Nook app allows you to make notes. It may let you copy text on a non-DRM'd book but I don't have any of those so I'm not able to test it. (Just note that while the Nook lets you read PDFs the Nook app currently doesnt.

There isn't a native notes app for the Nexus S because it doesn't have TouchWiz UI. I'm quite certain the voice action 'Note to self' actually sends an email to yourself (I don't personally use that action, not sure it likes a British accent) There are loads of third party apps though. For example Scribb.it is full to the bursting with features, AK Notepad ...

Use Evernote. It features cloud sync and it lets you access your notes from almost all platform. You can create audio notes directly from homescreen using its widget, too.

The most complete solution for private contacts and calendar sync seems to be installing the CalDAV-Sync and CardDAV-Sync apps on your phone and setting up a CalDAV / CardDAV server. Several open-source solutions are available; check the list on Wikipedia. I've been a happy user of a DAViCal installation.

ezPDF does bookmarking, multicolor highlighting, annotation list, etc... and it is saved to with the PDF when later open it in Skim. idk what epub is, but it sounds similar to what ezPDF does

FBReader or CoolReader do read epubs, and you can select text/make bookmarks there.

The general rule is to make sure you touch your device with your stylus first then rest your palm, it helps big time. Unfortunately, I have not seen an app with a dead area, but that means its not the "whole page". Samsung are the leaders for true stylus technology on android with their new Galaxy Note phone/tablet which may be the best choice for this ...

Install Titanium backup - (this requires root access) from Play store and you can backup thinks like sms/call logs/apps and app data. In your case, you might want to backup the app and the app data for that particular app, save your backups. Once you restore the phone, you can use Titanium to restore that app and data.

I'm using Catch Notes for this functionality: notes saved offline and synced, when internet connected (and some notes I'm editing from my PC via web browser, their synced later).

I have looked a number of products and I have got to say Touchdown by Nitrodesk always comes out on top. I have just returned to Android after a short spell with WP7 and fogot how much I relied on Touchdown. My favourite is the fact it will read out emails, which is useful!

It is possible (at least in my device) and I've provided a generalized idea using my Mediatek device running Android 4.2.1. The idea is very simple. Most of the notes apps I tried so far stores the notes inside a .db file located in their personal space under /data. We have to get the relevant .db file(s) and then export it into a .csv file. For a ...

Like @Izzy mentioned in the comments, Tasker is the way to go. Here you can see a List of Plug-Ins and 3rd Party Tools where you can find Easy Voice Recorder. With this installed it will be easy to create a Task for recording ;)

Note Everything exports all notes in the folder named noteeverything. It seems that it chooses /sdcard as its base to identify where to store. Regardless of it, in my device having External SD card as default storage, the notes were saved in the root directory of external SD card under the folder named noteeverything/text/ with names as ...

Unfortunately the functionality to move pages between different sections doesn't appear to be available. I would love it if you could move pages between sections, and even move sections between different notebooks. As a workaround, the functionality IS available on the web version of OneNote. If you have the OneNote notebook stored in your OneDrive (which I ...

Use Xperia Notes App. This allows you to add texts, draw pictures and record audios as well. It also has a widget. But the app may not be compatible with your device.

Make device as root Go to xda-developers.com - Seeder Topic Install last Seeder apk on your device Run it And then your device should work better.

There are plenty of note taking apps on the Play Store : Evernote, its Android Widget and all the official Evernote apps (like Skitch) are available on the Play Store. If you do not want to use Evernote you have got the same thing with Catch.com. There are its Catch Notes app and all the other on the Play Store. You can use the official Microsoft OneNote ...

You can configure Note Everything to do regular backups of all your notes (they will be stored on SD card then). If you additionally want to have those data sync'd with "the cloud", you might want to take a look at specific synchronization apps, like e.g. FolderSync. This way you can keep the app you are already used to (and which is wonderful, by the way -- ...

S Note that comes with the galaxy note 10.1 has all that, but the math engine has its limitations. As an engineering student I do lots of work with matrices and it doesn't work that well with it....but it does integrals quite well.

My notepad (aka com.example.android.notepad), resident of Motorola xt317 (android 2.3), has a sqlite database living in the phone. Download it with adb pull /data/data/com.example.android.notepad/databases/note_pad.db ./Documents

I did some research and found out that this was pre-installed either by Huawei, or my telecom, as it resided in /cust/tata/in/app. The notepad app is too bad as it doesn't allow anything else other than adding and deleting notes. I solved my problem by manually opening each and every one of the notes, selecting all of them, tapping "copy" and then going to ...

While I can't help you with the copy-paste, I do recommend using an automatic solution to convert the files. Conversion to PDF might help if Adobe Reader for Android will let you copy newlines, or you could have a <br /> tag inserted after every paragraph, etc.

I am using Springpad which meets all of your requirements apart from 4. But you can long press and select edit which sort of works like you want it to.

Try NitroNote - it offers syncing for Outlook Notes. You'll need to install apps on your desktop as well as the device. There's also the more powerful TouchDown client which will sync email / contacts / tasks from an Exchange server. Finally, lots of users claim to find gSyncit to work well for them, but YMMV.
