"Beautiful writing"

JotterPad X: Writing is well-crafted text editor which makes easier creating and editing documents on-the-go

"Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working" Picasso said. The problem is that, until now, it was difficult to find you working if you were, for example, on-the-go. Mobile has given us the chance to turn anywhere into our workplace. Likewise, JotterPad X has empowered us to welcome inspiration whenever it comes.

In essence, JotterPad X doesn't reinvent the wheel but makes it looks beautiful and smooth. JotterPad X is a text editor that allows you to create text documents, style them, give them different formats (including PDF and HTML), save and share them.

Some features make JotterPad stand out. For example, auto-save, physical keyboard support, full-screen writing mode (to avoid distractions), and different text-styling features. The writing experience gets specially boosted if you "Get Creative". In other words, if you upgrade to the Pro version of JotterPad X, which unlocks Thesaurus and Popup Dictionary integration, night mode (battery-saving), export to PDF, lockscreen and markdown feature to preview the document before web publishing.

Setting aside all that useful features, JotterPad X is outstandingly well-crafted app. Beautiful and smooth design that merges both Holo-layout with Metro-like animations (for example, when opening a document). All its different document styles are well-chosen and perfectly match the most-used Internet text formats (essays, magazines, newspaper, novel, poem...).

JotterPad is one of the best writing apps on the market so far. It's full-featured, well-designed and it encourages you to keep writing.

    My only problem is no italicized/bold words, but you probably can get that if you're willing to pay money.

    I'm trying to make a screenplay. Jotterpad doesn't seem to recognize the general syntax of the fountain format. it doesn't indent things automatically. it just seems like a glorified notepad. I don't even know where the export to pdf is saving to. not very intuitive.
