About this app

Notepad is a small and fast notetaking app for making notes, memos, or just any plain text content. Features:
* simple interface that most of the users find easy to use
* no limits on note's length or number of notes (of course there's a limit to phone's storage)
* creating and editing text notes
* importing notes from txt files, saving notes as txt files
* sharing notes with other apps (e.g. sending a note by email)
* notes widget allowing to quickly create or edit notes, working like post it notes (stick a memo to home screen)
* backup function for saving and loading notes from a backup file (zip file)
* app password lock
* color themes (including dark theme)
* note categories
* automatic note saving
* undo/redo changes in notes
* lines in background, numbered lines in a note
* technical support
* search function that can quickly find text in notes
* unlock app with biometrics (e.g. fingerprint or face recognition)

It may be obvious, but notes in the app can be used in many ways. For example as a to do list to increase productivity. A sort of digital planner to store shopping list or to organize the day. Notes can be put on the home screen as reminders. Each task could be stored in a seperate note or one big todo note could be used.

** Important **
Please remember to make a backup copy of notes before formatting a phone or buying a new phone. Since the 1.7.0 version the app will also use phone's device copy, if it's turned on in the device's and the app's settings.

* Why do I advise to not install the app on an SD card?
I follow the official advice to block installing on an SD card apps that use widgets. This app uses widgets, which are like icons for the notes, and can be placed on a phone's home screen (for example).

If you have any additional questions, just contact me by email: notepad.free@outlook.com .

Thank you.

Very nice, basic note taking app. Works pretty well without major hiccups, and works with voice recognition too. The only thing is that since notes can get long pretty quickly, I wish there was a way to immediately go to the bottom of the note right away (when u open up any note, it starts from the top), but there isn't - you have to scroll manually all the way down. It can be tedious each time, so I wish they just added a button or something that lets u go from top to bottom at will.

Hi. You can change that on the "Settings" > "Note editing" screen. To open settings use the standard top left corner menu button. Please let me know if you can't find it. My email address is notepad.free@outlook.com. Thank you for the review.

I think I found my favorite notes app! I have a bit to learn but so far this is a pretty simple notepad that can be cateorgized but not so cluttered as other apps I've tried. Some are too busy and complicated for what I want. I lost my Notepad that was on my android phone and about 200 notes, recipes, etc. I'm still angry! But after trying 12 other Notes apps and uninstalling them, I found this straightforward, easy to use first time, very nice app. I appreciate it!!!

Hi Kathy. I'm happy that you like the app. Is there something that is absent in the app which caused that rating? Choosing it over 12 other notepad app could suggest that it might even be worth that one extra star 😉. Please let me know in the comment or at notepad.free@outlook.com. Thank you.

I love the option to lock notes, as well as using biometrics (fingerprint) to unlock the app, it makes it much more convenient then typing in a password every time. Also I really enjoy the ability to disable the ads (small ads at the top) for 10 days, with no charge, and an additional 10 days for every 30sec ad you watch.
