Its goood nd smooth The app is goood smooth to write or pen down something on the go.... But to the contrary its one function dosent work which is autocorrect - spell check... Please correct it in next update... For this particular function i installed so fast or i have to move to other app... If possible to include proof reading function to it.... Thank you

Jack Bernier

Malware! This application installed harmful Malware on my device. It was fine until recently my antivirus discovered that this application was harming my device

Almost perfect. Very smooth and all, but i just request one thing, I request one little tweak... Can we set the text blinker to custom colors? I cant stand black backgrounds, so i changed it to white, and now I can't see the blinker and it gets irritating. Plus, can you give options for setting custom colors (or even images) for backgrounds? And those tabs on the left/right sides get in the way a bit, getting rid of those would be nice too. Thanks. Otherwise this app deserves 5 stars.

not for office usage It is good only for writing a letter to families but who does that crap anymore. I couldn't send to my office computer, it don't have pages, to let you know how many you typed, no printing capabilities, you have to send everything to Drop box or Google Drive to get copies or print it out. There is no delete side widget so you can delete a file off your tablet. You can't change your font size, nor color schemes or back page and lettering colors to soot your eye comfort. "It is a good concept, but needs dire improvements". I gave it a try doing medical reports, but..? In other words it's CRAP.

I write lyrics this is my favorite app to write my lyrics with. My friend showed me cause he writes lyrics and I love its simplicity

Ociana Grandwell

Best typing! I usually use wordpad for writing my stories and ideas to express before writing down on my paper! Very useful.

Bryan Perras

no spell check I downloaded this app to spell-check text documents. Everything seemed to work fine except the spell check, which didn't work at all.

Jesse Pitts

great app but I can't view the file thru usb connection have to email the files

Ryan Inkman

Great product After 4 or 5 apps I had used and unistalled I found this gem simple effective nothing fancy everything I need for a word based app excellent!! 5***** all the way

Jim B

Elegant minimalist design, but spell-check does not work on my Sony Xperia Z. Had to uninstall. Currently using Kingsoft Office or Ted text editor.

Rion Washington

Wow This game is so fun because you get to write what ever you want to.

Branden Schultz

Overall, good. One problem... After the latest phone update for my galaxy s5 I can't see the cursor anymore, which makes this pretty hard to use. I like the setup of the app, but this problem makes it hard to continue using it for the time being.

Ma.grace Garcia

Nice I never try anything but when i saw this,its worth a while.


Don't like it ! It doesn't spell check ! Aghh I just want one good app for writing !!!

Jared N

Simple minimal text editor. The only thing I would change is including an option to get rid if those two tabs on on either side of the screen.

Conner Hoye

Not the best but it's a brilliant app to keep all your personal information on

Jeremy Henderson

This app... I spent a few weeks on an important document. I'm working on it and all text just turned into numbered lines... This app is terrible, if you're looking for document security.

Mike Miner

Great! I am a writer, so this app is perfect for me! Works amazing- slow someties, but rarely.

Malappa Poojari

Awesome app As described it's easy and simple .. loved to use thanks for such an app. .

Candy Korn

Cool It's very cool if writers want to write on the go


Minor problem with the alignment of line numbers. They partially overlaps the texts.

Jett Helms

Good but Please add word count to this app

Dion M. Bass

Good sh.t...we all need with great simplicity

Michele Chandler

Not working...forces closed Just tried this app for the first time last night and it keeps forcing closed and not saving new info. I uninstalled and then reinstalled but still not working. Would be great if it actually worked and I didn't lose all the information I just typed into it. Please fix!!! :(

Ashley Graham

Easy to use I like using this app. And plus, it's a good app to use for inserting cheat codes for the ppsspp emulator.

Kristin Thompson-Higgins

No go... Can you print from it? No.

Teigan Mayston

The best app ever This app is so good to my songs on

kittykat plays

Stupid I downloaded it 3 weeks ago and it deleted all my notes

Dana Jarvis

Rio Wong

Small app size ? Need texts selector larger which can't be controlled

Limited Spell check + No Searching When using the on screen keyboard spell check will offer suggestions for the current word only but does not highlight any other bad word. If using an external Bluetooth keyboard no spell check is offered. No Search & Replace. No Search at all but has no ads & loads fast. Full screen option.

Mark Neal

Works really great...I love how its less complicating then most apps

Harshit Raj Singh

Best app but need some improvement like add a new function for search text in notes that make easy to find anything in our notes

Rin Kagamine

Awwweeesomme I would use this app on my laptop and phone and it's awesome!! There's no complaints from me ~

Siddarth Jain

Clipboard available Great app. Tried many txt editor app, no one showed the clipboard. Txt doc size supported is good, but gets slow after about 200 kb. Undo redo buttons should be made available. OVERALL BEST

Alfy Guillen

It's actually good to use for quick notes & all, i'm just annoyed by the two things sticking out on each side on the top. More so the one on the left. It leads to nothing & it's just in the way

Wingus Krunkle

Really enjoy the good-looking simplicity and smoothness. I really love this app a lot over other similar ones I've tried. This is perfect for me - no fancy frills or annoying email sign-ups, etc. yet it still looks modern and sleek. It works dependably well, too. Two things though: (1) I wish you could hold down titles in the recent documents sidebar and select to delete individual documents from your recent history. (2) I also wish you could choose in settings what default file format to save as. I prefer to save all my files as .rtf instead of .txt because it's way more comprehensive when reading/transferring my files on my computer, other devices, or sending to others.


Folders. I use this app on my Proscan Tablet for writing poetry and stories. I like it, but how do you make your own folder? I did it once before on accident and now I can't remember how I did it. If I could make my own folders? This would be an awesome app.

Adam Parker

Solid Text Editor Great app. Does everything I need it to do, and will even reopen when the app is closed with no changes. Even has spell check!

Jessica Cifelli

Everything was going good, but then the app lost my documents. And they were on auto save. Definitely not happy

mahdi ameri

Sony Xperia Z Hello is very very good Software Thanks ?

Ramen Sarkar

iit's fully satisfactory in all ways R.C. Sarkar

Chicadoodle G

good but it would crash if i tried to save it in it's file


Really good I love this app it's helpful

Theofanis Lantzakis

Easy to use. Just type , is all you need to do. Left swipe at the symbol on the left, shows previous files, right swipe at the symbol on the right shows menus.

Sania Shahid

Can anyone tell me how to save the document in your own phone, so that you can attach it with a mail?

Vince K

Great like to copy and paste html, youtube iframes. able to save for future use.

wclifton968 - gameplays & tutorials

Good Clean, simple & easy to use but it took longer for me to try to find how to save the document & can you add .rtf file support?

Madeeha Saeed

Best writing app. I never found the most simplest app like this for writing.

stanis minz

App malfunction It was working fine until it started collapsing

Jason Medland

Is what it says it is, does what it says it does The app is noted to be in beta but is very functional. Support for markdown would be nice to have some control over display but still effectively remain plain text. External XD card support would be a nice feature add. The "pointless" tab on the left as another reviewer noted is actually the "most recent" list, a nice feature to have this early. I did a force stop and the app still re-opened where I left it, double thumbs up there!

john j

Wish it was Wordpad not Notepad This is Notepad, showing all the formating when opening a .doc file. Awkward to use of find the tools.

Martin Nyirenda

Nice App I can even do my coding on this app.

Michael Pienaar

Great txt editor. One of few plain text editors that are available in the share list when you want to copy a lot of text from the clipboard to an editor. The app is old and by the looks of it we wouldn't see any updates coming up, so what it is is what it is. It is good.

ameeth kumar

I love this app I like this app becuse ths app useful 2 create txt very smple. So ths app vry much. Pls create like ths app i produ if u my dear word pad owner thank u ....

Bruce Wayne

Good for writing! Only things I could think of adding would be a word count

Soma Singh

Waste of time. ..write a letter and try to print it. ..the app tells you that the file is invalid !!

Jessie Puok
