Cintanotes on Android via Simplenote app

Postby danielson » Fri Dec 04, 2015 2:06 pm

The help file doesn't list this yet, but Google Voice search can be used on Android to add notes to Simplenote (which is "syncable" for CN pro users).

Here's my experience:
1. First opened Simplenote app;
2. "Okay Google" to tell it to add new note (which it spontaneously does on Simplenote);
3. Close Simplenote app, then "Okay Google" again. This time it asks to which app to add the note.
Once Simplenote is chosen, it seems to be set a default.

Perhaps there's a setting on Nexus 2013 with Marshmallow that could have made things simpler for me?
Not sure.

Google Android voice recog. isn't best deal, especially if your nose is blocked up! :lol:
But, i'm trying hard to keep notes in one place.
It's not easy not to look around...

Awesome, and it does in fact work. Thanks for the tutorial danielson.

@Agaria, you are quite welcome! ;)

Just in case.
Be careful before joining SN beta.
Saw someone recently posting on the Google+ page about losing his notes.
He recovered them but, i just fret about losing one note.
