"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.

    This is a great writer / editor for tablets. I like it a lot. One small trouble is that sometimes it gets disconnected from BT keyboard and android on-screen keyboard comes up. Lasts about 2-3 seconds, not sure why this is like that. The more important thing is about shortcuts. Very good, simple keyboard shortcuts, but no shortcut for bringing up context menu; e.g. you have misspelt a word, it is

    Really love the app. Ive gone through a few writing apps and this one is just right for me. The one thing I couldnt figure out is if there is a way to lock the app with a pin? Other than that, great job guys.

    I have been using this app for about a month. So far it works fine, no problems as of yet. It let's you know if you haven't saved your work. I like that feature.
