Product Description

Notepad is a simple tool that lets you write and edit text notes on Kindle.

Write notes about any subject you wish, from meeting notes to grocery reminders. Jot down quick ideas, phone numbers and addresses, or remember that perfect gift for a special someone.

With Notepad, you can create or view a note with one of two different fonts, and in any of six different font sizes. Your notes can be sorted by date or alphabetically by title. Notepad also allows you to search for text in real-time within the body and title of your notes. Simply start typing in the word you are looking for, and Notepad instantly displays the notes that contain that word. This allows you to find anything you may have previously written, without having to browse through notes individually. Features like copy/paste, text navigation shortcuts and 'persistent shift' (which allows you to type an uppercase letter by pressing Shift and the letter in sequence as opposed to simultaneously) further make typing and editing easy at your fingertips. Use Notepad to take notes on Kindle today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Fast,Simple and Easy to Use. March 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
I have been looking for a few ways to get my notes into the Kindle - since I have had it for about 8 months now - and this "meets" the needs that I had.

Needs:
o Quick - it must be quick
-- Did I mention that it has to be "Quick"? -- and this is the fastest I've seen on the Kindle - I have about 500MB free (yup - I like books,magazines, etc.) and my kindle is sluggish - but this app works really fast.
-- Disclaimer - I've only put in about 50 notes (so far)
o Easy to use - this is SUPER easy
-- All the key mappings you need are displayed in an intuitive manner - Alt+X (Save and Exit - I really like this)
o Copy Notes to my PC and Vise Versa
-- The video shows that this can be done - I've yet to try it - but it's a simple copy / paste operation
o Font Sizes:
-- I am a fan of small fonts and this allows me to use small fonts - to be able to add more notes
o Search by Note Title
-- This works as advertised - quickly locate notes by title
o Search Notes by Body keyword
-- Again, works as advertised - quickly and painlessly
o Saves work in progress (for the "all thumbs folks" (like me)
-- I have a tendency to hit the home button - and this saves my "unsaved" note - so I can go back to it - sweeeeet!
o Simple, Clean UI:
-- This UI reminds me of the Old Palm Days (think Palm Notepad) - but on steroids - so nice to KISS

In a nutshell, this is worth $0.99 many times over,.... BUT only if you are looking for a Quick, Easy and Intuitive UI that allows you to enter notes on your Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty in Simplicity March 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
Just grabbed this notepad as my first Kindle App. I haven't felt the need to download any other apps because I basically just want my Kindle for reading. However, I've been somewhat wishing that Kindle came with some sort of notepad type application. Well, one dollar later and now it does! Totally worth it. If I'm really into a book and suddenly remember something that I need to pick up at the store, the likelihood of me getting up to write it on the fridge is not real high...however, I don't mind jumping over to my notepad to jot a quick note (and this is quick - as quick as I can move my thumbs). I've had my Kindle for about two months and about a week after I got it I was at the grocery store and saw a funny sign. I wanted to write down what it said to share with Guido when I got home, but had nothing good to write on. I tried to figure if there was a way to take a note in Kindle and came up empty. I got home that night and I forgot the details of the sign just enough to make it not funny to repeat. I was able to catch it again a couple weeks later, but still...if I had this app then - well, I would've just jotted it down. It seems to have some really good features such as restore points and searching within a search. I'm excited to have this little app around and look forward to using it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cleaned up my kindle with this March 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
When I read a review of a book I might like, I download a sample. But sometimes I'm not in the mood for horror or history, so all those samples clogged up my K and when I went looking for that horror book I thought I would like, I couldn't find it. I ended up jotting notes which I promptly lost

Now I have notes to myself--horror, mystery, bio, history-- and my K is all cleaned up. I'll be able to find the book I want.

I also like the idea someone had about listing all the books in a series. I get tired of figuring out what comes next then forgetting.

What a neat app!!

Let's get the calendar and contact list next!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Basic, Very Handy Kindle App (v. 1.1) March 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
UPDATE FOR v1.1:

I hadn't used the Notepad app in quite a while, but was away from home yesterday and needed to make some brainstorming notes because I knew I'd forget by the time I got home. So I whipped out my Kindle, which goes everywhere with me, and got to see Notepad version 1.1 in action for the first time.

All but one of the items listed in my Drawbacks section below in the original review were addressed, making this app even more user friendly.

Wordwrap has been added.

A "quick delete" feature has been added, used by holding down the delete key so it keeps going.

When saving or saving and exiting from a note you no longer have to click on an "okay" button. Instead a message at the top states that your note was saved and you keep going uninterrupted.

Additionally, a cut/copy and paste feature has also been added.

Great update from the makers!

----------------------------

ORIGINAL REVIEW FOR v1.0:

For those looking for a sophisticated application for editing documents on your Kindle, this isn't it. Notepad is extremely basic in features and design, likely intentionally so in order to make the best use of the limits of the Kindle. There are no formatting options and no copy and paste functions.

Positives:

Notepad is very easy to use. You can download it, open it up, and start making notes without ever needing to read any help files. The layout, navigation, and menus are very intuitive.

There is a basic Help file included, accessed by pushing the Kindle Menu button. The Welcome Note that is included has keyboard shortcut tips.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad for 2nd Gen Paperwhite
App simply won't load. Unfortunate. Too bad you can't easily get a refund, and too bad the store doesn't prohibit purchases. Try TakeNote Instead.

Update request for Paperwhite
Really? Not going to support Paperwhite? That's too bad. I loved this app on my Kindle Keyboard. I'd gladly pay double to take it over to my Paperwhite.

Monique, there is no way to accent the words. We have had a few requests to add support for diacritics/foreign languages but have no idea if/when we will add this. Especially since Kindle Apps are not available internationally.
