"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.

    It was doing great at first. I've been flawlessly typing on my Huawei Mediapad Lite, but when I reached 780+ words, I can't type as fast as when I began. I tried to exit and open the app, tried to edit my document, but it was as slow as before I first closed the app. I wish it could work fine on my device.

    Yes, it's clean and pretty, but the "free" version let's you write and that's about it. You can't edit your doc, you can't export, or do anything besides delete it after its saved. Bad programming, always freezes and I have a barely touched note 3. Stupid. You'd be better off going to a post it note. At least you scratch out what you don't want.

    This app is great. It's like ms word in my pocket. I've never ran into any problems with this.

    Fantastic distraction free writing app that has everything you need and nothing you don't. Dev. was very responsive on two occasions with issues I was having. Note: If you get crashes every time you open a document try uninstalling and reinstalling (your documents will remain untouched). I had restored from a Titanium backup and it gave me this problem; a reinstall from the play store corrected
