I need a light-weight web-based note keeping application. The app should be runnable on Android/ iPhone. I need such an app because I find that I do grocery shopping once in a week, and by the time I get to do shopping, I forget what I want to buy already. So I can jot down my necessities in my daily life and view the list when I'm doing the shopping.

Is such an app already available?

Gmail task is a good choice. But it is a bit too general.

Edit: Thanks for all the recommendation! But I would prefer the one with OpenID support even though it has less features, rather than the one without with more features.

If you're looking for something like google tasks, remember the milk is great. I use it for all my grocery/tasking needs.


How about SimpleNote?


You might take a look at Evernote. It is a web-based application, with client-side packages available as well. I'm not sure if it can be qualified as lightweight, but it is a fairly nice note-taking tool.


For grocery lists specifically (since you mentioned that repeatedly in your question) I would recommend GetGroceriesDone for simple printable grocery lists: http://www.getgroceriesdone.com
