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.

LOVE this notepad! I have other notes apps that I use for saving long notes, checklists, and things like that. I wanted a simple app where I could literally just store some quick notes and keep my thoughts organized. I've been using it every day since I downloaded it! Being able to change the theme is great, and it still allows you to edit the fonts and background colors. Bonus you can create categories to sort your notes even further. Watch one video ad and you don't get any for 10 days!

Functional, Simple, Clean. It works well and does what it's supposed to- record notes. I've been using it for 4 or 5 years (at least) now. Unlike most apps these days Notepad is not constantly trying to outsmart the user. If a feature is disabled it stays disable w/o trying to convince you to turn it back on. Updates are always useful and current settings are left alone. Thanks for making a great app!!

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.
