hello!
Can Notepad++ send text to the cloud and read it on my android phone?
Or maybe another good text editor?
Or any other solution?
I have Google Keep, but unfortunately it doesn't work, text on my phone is not available online and vice versa.
Thanks!

I use Simplenote for this kind of thing, but I wouldn't call it a text editor.  It's a simple webapp for keeping a small collection of notes.  It syncs to/from my devices and my PC (via a browser) no problem.

For anyone who finds this interesting and wants to understand more about how it works, much (maybe all?) of it is open sourced: https://github.com/Automattic (and search for "simplenote").

They have a simple note application for the android, though I use Glance Note for most of my work there.

And there's CintaNotes, mentioned here before, that moved it's SimpleNote synchronization into the free version some time ago. Notes can be viewed/edited on Android (and other platforms) using a SimpleNote app. Very convenient. (disclaimer: I'm a happy CintaNotes user, received a free Lifetime-PRO license in a giveaway here on DCF).

Hi kalos,

I wanted something similar, i.e. a way to write short notes when I am on desktop (mostly) and viewing those notes in simple and quick manner, on my Android phone.

As said above by others, I found the below combination best for me.
1. ResophNotes http://www.resoph.co...phNotes/Welcome.html for desktop
2. Simplenote  https://simplenote.com/ for Andoid, also IOS.

Excerpt from the ResophNotes site,

Features

Simple and fast notes on Windows
Sync online with Simplenote
    Support proxy (require HTTPS protocol)
Access notes on iPhone and iPad through Simplenote app
Portable version suitable for flash drive
    (no modification on host computer)

Support Note as List Items
    Simplenote premium required for viewing in Simplenote App
Global hot-key for creating new note
Global hot-key to restore window when minimized
Support “Markdown” (text-to-HTML conversion) with preview
Recognize HTTP and email address in note for redirect
Support “internal link” with [ and ] (wikilink)
Optional plain text file (.txt) per note as database
    ResophNotes will automatically generate .txt files in the first sync

Complete keyboard control
Single Note Mode (F11)
Simplenote Pinned and Tag support

My requirement is solved and I am happy now. See if it can be helpful to you.
