Perfect It's ridiculous how hard it is to find a simple notepad ap with titles, a place to write, and the ability to sort the notes. This one is all of the above + it easily imported all my notes from my old phone. Perfect.
Nice, with missing touches I just started using the app and it has a bunch of cool features. However: 1) The widget on the home screen seems to allow for showing only one note. See the widget of the app called "Notes" for a much more useful widget, with the option to pin multiple notes and a + button. 2) If a note is opened from the widget, it looks like the top left "Back" button leaves the app entirely, instead of (as I would expect) going back to the main app screen. The latter behaviour would be much more useful for switching between multiple notes, or creating new ones.
Not bad A small app (622KB) that does what I need it to do. May not have all the font type faces I /could/ have, but that's really just a minor thing that's easily overlooked, and possibly easily fixable.
Long story: This is THE BEST. If you want notes on right in the background of the screen as a widget, you can have it. You make the background transparent so that it is just text you put on . You can change the size (the police), the color of the text as well. If you want to use it as a journal, you can to, however it will become disorganized, unless what you're really looking for (in the sense of a journal) are to do list that you can check and cross. Now that's another amazing thing about it, you can make lists too. I only needed it to add text on the background of my phone, but all the other great features makes me give a 5/5. I recommend using it in combination with Draft (journal/diary/note app), if you only need few notes and want some of the background, it's the only one you need. Short story: Just download it you'll see how great it is, you have transparent texts for the background as widgets too
PROBLEM: you've got monospace and you've got serif but you don't have monospaced serif typeface. That is a boo boo. ... ... ... ... Ok I'll sort of forgive the export stuff. Having it do it automatically and having the stuff archived sort takes care of my data pretty well I think. Still wish the folder structure was there though. But still: You really need to take the word simple out of the name of this thing. ... ... ... And I really don't like the idea that I get Dropbox whether I want it or not. .... .... Ohhh! Look... this "exporting" stuff instead of just saving my files as regular old files that I can be confident aren't going to disappear because they're metadata inside your program... that just don't get it dude... that really doesn't. Gonna lose a second star for that. .... .... Hmmmmm... easy to "save as" to Dropbox... not easy to local storage at a random location. ... I'm afraid we hit a snag that you will have to lose a star for. You have folders that the notes are organized into, but this is not reflected in the file structure where the data is saved. If you're going to add such functionality it needs to make sense. Only having the organization show up inside the application doesn't make sense. .... .... Allrightie then. Actually not so simple. Has lots of stuff that I don't strictly need. But its not crudd... it's useful stuff. Don't know if I'll actually use it. The major point is... this actually works. I can find my data, I can give it the name I want, Android will associate the app with text files, doesn't want every permission in the book . I don't understand why this is so hard for other people to get right. I think I've looked at at least a dozen notepads and I finally found something to make me stop looking. As to it being not flashy... well... there are too many programs out there that worry about flashy and don't worry about getting the job done. To me those are losers. This one's a winner. ( I am puzzled with the fascination over widgets, however. Good short cuts are actually much more useful. And we certainly don't need a dozen different choices of widget size... I mean they are resizable.) If you are going to have lots of functionality it needs to be exposed without having to go through lots of clicking. Oh, so I can make a shortcut to specific folders. But.. It doesn't look like I can make make a shortcut to All Notes folder... And a new note by default goes into All Notes... which takes multiple clicks to get to. ... Oh! There's the shortcut to specific notes... sort of buried... Gotta be reading it... after having saved it and reopened it. (That's a bit clumsy.) ... But really this is all minor. This thing gets the job done much better than a dozen others I've looked at. Still gets my recommendation.
Lacks multiple selection function This is just a good notepad. Sadly it LACKS MULTIPLE NOTES SELECTION OPTION. So its tad difficult for me to manually move every note to custom folder inside Simplenotepad itself. And i have over 500 notes and want to sort them folder wise but unfortunately this apps lack the basic selection function.
