You can organize your notes in the folders, creating as many notes as you want. All notes are stored as simple text files so you can copy and read them on your computer. Once you've finished editing on your computer, you can transfer your changes back onto your Kindle via the Plug n Play feature.

You can write your daily diary and access the diary page through the calendar. In similar fashion, you can add your daily tasks list and mark then close once completed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good for quick notes but little else February 23, 2012
By Jeff
Verified Purchase
I'm writing this after using Notepad Plus for a few hours for the notes function. The diary, calendar and shopping list features might be nice, but I bought this primarily as a way to write things down when I'm away from the computer. I'm not looking for a word processor or a text editor with all the bells and whistles. All I need is a way to write and edit plain text in a very basic fashion, then upload it to my computer when I get home. Story ideas, outlines, maybe even a scene or two if I'm trapped somewhere for an hour and don't feel like reading.

Since I nearly always have my Kindle Touch with me, I figured this program would be a great addition to my world. Instead, it's mostly useless for what I want.

First, the big one. There's a 3,100 character limit for notes. I know this because I just spent most of an hour typing on it and, when I hit the save button, I got this charming message: "Error: You have entered more than 3100 characters. Cannot save the file!"

I'm sorry, but no matter how you slice it or dice it, this is horrible interface design. If there's a limit like this (stupid in and of itself), why in the world do you allow someone to type well past that limit and only holler at them when it's far too late for them to do anything about it? Even better, I hit the "OK" button on that error and my Kindle Touch froze up hard. The very first freeze I've had with this device, by the way, so thanks for that!

Even ignoring this ridiculous issue, there's no way to move the cursor around in the text short of tapping the screen, which is inaccurate to say the least. I have to tap near but past where I want to type, hit the backspace button and retype as needed. Oh, and you can't select a blocks of text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice combined program February 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
Some of the decent note programs are Notepad, Sticky Notes, and TakeNote. Some of the decent calendar programs are Calendar (7 Dragons), Day Planner, and Calendar (Compulab). I've tried them all, and they work well on the Kindle Keyboard. I got a Kindle Touch as a gift for someone, at that point only Calendar (7 Dragons) and Easy Calculator seemed Kindle Touch compatible.

SwashApps has now released Notepad Plus, which combines the Note program with a Calendar program. It works very well on my Kindle Keyboard. I haven't tried it on a Kindle Touch. A year ago, I gave the developers a hard time for their Finance Manager app. They soon made an update and improved the product. Send the developers a note if you spot any issues, they listen.

I like this program. The next test will be how well text documents can go back and forth between this app and a PC. Notepad and TakeNote give detailed explanations on the esoteric transfer process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice app February 16, 2012
By Anthony
Okay, so there are other notepad programs out there, but for me, this is the best one. It combines several programs into one: folders with notes, a diary with password protection, a grocery list generator, and a calendar with tasks. I found the program easy to navigate and well conceived. I`m not sure why there are so many negative reviews--I think this app is well worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent. Room for improvement, but decent. February 25, 2012
By Leslie

Best notepad app for the Kindle touch that I have seen so far. The recent update has been very helpful. There is room for improvement, of course.

For example, I was using the note feature to take notes in class when I attempted to save, (I save every so often because I accidentally forgot to save once and lost my work) but got an error message that read "You have entered more than 3100 characters. Cannot save the file!" It is completely understandable that the file size would be limited, but I was caught off guard. Then, the error message would not close. So I had to restart my Kindle and return to the app. It had reverted back to the last save point, so I had to rewrite some of it in a new note. Luckily, I had saved pretty recently. For this reason, I suggest everyone SAVE OFTEN. It would be nice if there was a character count option or a notification that would warn people when they were nearing the limit.

Also, the password hint option seems to be flawed. Instead of giving you the hint, the app expects you to remember the hint like a second password, which sort of defeats the purpose.

This isn't really important, but it sort of annoyed me when I first got the app. You can only change the font size of the text in the diary and notes. I expected the be able to edit the format (such as making things bold, adding bullets, changing font, so forth) of the text in the notes, but I guess not. Changing font size in the shopping lists would be nice so one could see more of the items at a time, so I am slightly disappointed that option isn't there.

In summary, the app works just as it claims to, although it still has a few glitches. SwashApps seem to try to fix all the mistakes in the updates, though, so that is nice. Until they fix all of the glitches, though, I suggest saving often.
