Pro Completely free, ad-free, with unlimited devices
Zoho (the company behind Notebook) has been providing free, advertisement-free, productivity applications for over a decade, and this one is no different.
Pro Cloud sync
As an Evernote alternative, Notebook securely stores notes to the cloud, allowing you to access notes on all of your mobile devices, while the sync is seamless. Also, web app support is coming soon.
Pro Pre-built checklist and audio notes
Rather than create a checklist within a text note, Notebook has a pre-built checklist card, which makes creating them really easy. Plus the items you check off move to the bottom of the note.
