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.

Been using this app for a long time, and it hasn't disappointed. Switched my phone recently, and the backup/restore was so easy, really thankful for that option. Also I'd love if you guys would add these features: 1. "Pin to the top" specific notes on main screen. 2. Make it an option for when launching the app, it shows a "categories" screen as the main screen (like browsing folders on app start). 3. Add option for bullets and numbers to the formatting bar. Love your work. Keep it up!

Great app, have used others & this is the best so far. Love the easy backup function but none of the 'categories' came through, had to manually enter all of them after a restore, what a pain, can this be fixed? Also whenever I tap on a note to open it the keyboard automatically comes up which I immediately have to close since I'm usually looking for some data in the note. Can this be changed. Other than these two issues love the app, the way it works, the categories etc. Almost a five star app.

Hi Gary. I'll fix the issue with categories, I know what you meant. You can disable opening keyboard on the Settings > Note editing screen. You can also open notes in the "read" mode. Please let me know if you need help with those options. My email address is notepad.free@outlook.com. Thank you for the review.

I use this app extensively to capture notes from pdf books I've downloaded. It's the perfect companion for such things. There is a Format Bar that can be activated that includes the ability to highlight text. You can Colorize your Notes and Sort by color. You can do Searches. Each Note you create has the ability to hold thousands of characters. I've also downloaded huge articles onto a Note. The app has a lot of features that exist in the menu which are also helpful. It's worth taking a look.
