Litewrite is a genuinely useful note-taking and drafting tool that has a lot going for it. The application has an unobtrusive interface which provides a distraction-free writing environment right inside your browser, you can easily manage multiple documents, and sync them across multiple machines via the remoteStorage-based protocol. The only fly in the ointment is the fact that Litewrite doesn't run well in Firefox for Android (or any other Android browser for that matter). Fortunately, the Litewrite notes app for Firefox solves this problem, which means that it's now possible to use Litewrite on Android directly from within the Firefox browser.

To install Litewrite notes on Firefox for Android, launch the browser, press the Menu button, and choose Tools | Apps. Tap then on the Firefox Marketplace icon in the upper-right corner to open the official app repository. Search then for the Litewrite notes app and install it. You can then launch the app using the shortcut in the Apps section of Firefox (you can also add an app shortcut to the Home Screen). Sign in to your existing remoteStorage account (or create a new one), and you are good to go.
