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!

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!



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.


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.

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.

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.

I have to add my voice to the chorus saying how great this app is.

I bought a different Notepad for Kindle when I first got mine and it was awful - all your notes were superscripts that ended up in the My Clippings file.

This one is like a little mini-word processor. You can create a note, type directly into it, it automatically saves it, you can add symbols, and I haven't found a limit on the size of the note yet. I'm using it as a dream journal right now but might try to use it for a grocery list also. Since it's a little word processor you could use it for just about anything.

Word wrap doesn't work well on it, but I contacted the designers and they told me they will fix this on the next version. Capital letters can be done by holding down the shift key while typing the letter (as opposed to hitting shift, then the letter as you do in the rest of the Kindle).

It appears to be easy to navigate and easy to find your notes. Right now I only have 2 notes, but I can see there being a ton of them. The Help note that it comes with is extremely helpful. You can also backup your Notes to your computer which I will try to do down the road.

With all the awful Kindle apps out there it's practically a service to fellow Kindlers to point out when something is good. This one is really terrific. I hope these guys will work on a calendar or day planner after this!

This is by far the best notepad application available for the Kindle at this time. It is beautifully simple and functional, and can be used in many ways. So far, I am using it to hold two different shopping lists (Grocery List and Costco List), an Ideas note, and a To Do note. Multiple items can be added in each note.

I used it for grocery shopping the other day and it worked like a charm. I created a note and titled it Grocery List. Then I entered my list of items. While shopping, as I added an item to my cart, I "crossed it off" the list by adding two periods to the front of the item name. I didn't want to simply delete the item because (1) that would take longer and (2) I can reuse the same list, adding more to it, as necessary, and removing the periods from the items I need to buy again. Also, while shopping, if I thought of something that wasn't on the list, I added it to the list right then and there so that I would not forget it.

Later on, I thought to categorize the items in my Grocery List by arranging them under headings like PRODUCE, DAIRY, etc. Don't misunderstand me, though: There is no feature in Notepad to have categories within your Notes. I simply added a note item with all capital letters as the category heading and indented and used lowercase for the items under the headings. I'm only sharing this to give others ideas of how Notepad can be used.

I really like that the Notes have a time stamp. This way you know how recently you've accessed any of your Notes.

A feature that I would like to see added is the ability to sort the contents of a note. Currently, we can only sort the notes themselves. Ability to sort note contents would be very useful for notes that contain a list.

If you are thinking about buying this Kindle application, do not hesitate. It is most definitely worth it!
