I love the app much more than most note apps. My only complaint is that after the most recent update I can't move my files into folders anymore wether to remove them from one then add to another, or to place a stranded dock into a folder. In past I could press and hold a document and hit move file and choose the folder because I make documents before I decide to place it in the folder. But now all I have is the option to copy or delete folders. Someone please bring back the move document button

Does what you need it to do, and uploads to your choice of several cloud servers, so you can access your work from anywhere. Word count, choice of background theme and quick formatting. It's ideal. I've tried several different writing programs. I've stuck with Jotterpad for years now. I've used it on computers, tablets, multiple smartphone OS. Great upgrades that don't cost much at all. Stop looking! This is the one.

I first used this app (on a different account) several years ago. I bought the option for cloud backing, which also meant that I was able to edit items on different devices. Unfortunately, that purchase no longer means the same thing (according to my phone, at least), so I lost editing access to several things I've spent years on. Other than that, it's a straight-forward, easy to use app
