I don't know about anyone else's experience, but I am having some slight issues. It constantly jitters around due to the side bar and some other mechanisms that I still haven't identified, and it sometimes deletes entire sentences while I'm just typing away and in the flow. It's a beautiful app otherwise and after trying others out, it beats out the competition MANY times over in my opinion.

Import? Apparently after the change to Android 11 I can only import one file at a the using the + tab within the app? I've a hundred and fifty files! I'm happy I didn't have more! Are you serious? One file at time? And oh! It just copies them. If you're not careful you'll end up with duplicates! Trying to keep track down a file list that keeps scrolling back to the top every time a file is imported. Seriously?

Please press "+" > tap "Import" > find your documents in JotterPadX folder. The changes were done to comply with Android 11 internal storage permission policy. The import is fully controlled by Android OS. We have no control over it.

I come back after a hiatus of smart phones and they have a new subscription charge to sync to my drop box!? I paid once for that feature. and that was the understanding. I am not forking over $5/ month to write text files! otherwise, app seems to have added a few cool new features for power users. ads talking about "my next hit screenplay" smack of artifice. preying on wannabe dreamers. Now I need another app that backs up to a cloud without slurping on my bank account every month. bummer
