For almost a year now I'm using catch.com for taking quick notes. It's available on the web (everything https by default) and as an Android app (slightly more functions than on the web; didn't check other platforms).
It is geared towards being really quick when taking notes, jotting down that quickly fading thought. There is a widget for Android, reducing the effort to just one single click (get the focus on the text widget).
A note can be assigned multiple tags, useable for comfortable filtering, both on the web and on the Android app. The Android app can also assign a reminder (alarm) date/time to a note.
The Android app can reliably work offline and sync to the cloud later, when connectivity comes back.
In my view, catch.com is a great system for taking notes, if you can live with the privacy limitations of a cloud service.
