I want a simple note-taking application that is similar to Remember The Milk in the following aspects:

  • Has web interface

  • Has mobile interface (primarily Android) that can sync to-and-fro

The reason I don't use RTM itself for notes is that the workflow is not simple. You have to create a task and then add note to it, whereas a note is not an 'action' at all. And navigating notes is difficult too.

My requirements are simple: just a basic android app that shows list of notes and allows me to edit them (preferably with wiki like rich-text formatting). More importantly, it should sync to the internet so I can access the notes from my computer and other places.

Does such a one exist?

You need to accept more of your answers :-) – Aaron Jan 12 '10 at 8:30
You also need to be more specific about what you're looking for. What features from RTM do you need? What about RTM don't you like? – James Polley Jan 13 '10 at 22:04
I edited the post to add some clarifications. – Sridhar Ratnakumar Jan 18 '10 at 4:10

Evernote is the best alternate for Remember The Milk.

I second Evernote; it works on many platforms and does the job very nicely. – Kevin Y Jan 18 '10 at 4:11
Is there a different web interface? Namely, I'd like to edit notes in a new window, or maximized view. – gatoatigrado Apr 27 '11 at 21:51

Have you looked at Google Tasks? It has some of the same functionality and has great Android support.

Have you heard of this site? It meets all your criteria: it's extremely similar to Remember The Milk; it has a web interface; it has a nice web-based mobile interface, an android app, and an iPhone app.

Yes, I am a paid user and use it every day. It sucks at note taking (one has to create a task and then add note to it -- not easily accessible). – Sridhar Ratnakumar Jan 13 '10 at 16:07
Then you should add more detail to your list of requirements - we can't possibly recommend things that match criteria you haven't specified. – James Polley Jan 13 '10 at 22:04

Google notebook - deprecated but is still available.
