Write is a minimalist text editor for Android Tablets. You can use it to take notes, to write journal entries or for other text editing tasks.

Write offers both a minimalist writing interface that allows you to focus on what you are currently writing and a proper Android 4.0+ style interface for managing your notes/journal entries.

It has the features which should be in an Android text editor: clean interface, word count, proper Android appearance and searching your notes.

It is one of CNET's "Best Android notepad apps for students".

Write features...

✔ Fullscreen mode

When you want to focus you can hide the action bar and go to the fullscreen mode. In this mode you will see just your writing (and the onscreen keyboard if you are using it). There is an additional fullscreen view mode, where you can read text with editing disabled.

✔ Automatic Saving

Notes save when you go back to the main screen, when you switch to another App or go to the Home Screen.

✔ Word and Character count

So you can keep track of how much you've written. View statistics via the menu.

✔ Quickly create new versions of notes

You can create a copy of a note at the tap of a button. And delete notes (after confirmation) quickly.

You can export notes in HTML format to your external storage/SD card (ideal if you want to edit them in Word/Pages/OpenOffice Writer).

✔ Easy note/journal entry management

Notes are ordered by standard last-edited-first order and with a tap of your left thumb you can filter by date. In the latest version you can also order by creation date (Journal style). You can also do a text search to locate particular notes/entries.

✔ (Bluetooth) Keyboards

Keyboards work really well with Write. With a physical keyboard the fullscreen mode really is fullscreen (or as close as Android allows). Keyboard shortcuts for common actions.

✔ Onscreen keyboard

Auto-correct is enabled (with a physical keyboard it is disabled) for more accurate writing.

✔ Share/Send

Using Android's share feature Write is ideal for the preparation of blog entries, emails or other text. Just tap on share to send it to many applications (most Android Apps support the standard text sharing mechanism used).


An additional manual spell check option (and auto-correction-off option) is available for Android 4.0+ (the spell check depends on Android 4.0+).

    You can't write better than this. The only thing missing is greater cloud storage awareness (Drive!). Dropbox is okay but more choices is always better. Well done.

    I have other office suite programs that are overkill for just writing based on ideas. This is the only program I use when it comes to writing on the fly without anything to kill your train of thought. If I need to format it later, I transfer it to another program. Very well done!

    I would give it 5 stars, but found it could not handle long pieces, so had to break my writing up in to chapters. Not a big deal, but would prefer a project was on entry.

    It works well for my needs. I really like how it allows you to send text to the app. It is a basic clean writing app.

    I've been using this to write a book... I think it's great.

    Nice use of landscape mode. Streamlined. Simple but not lacking.

    The potential for a fantastic minimalist text editor is there, but as so often with Android apps, it just fails to go the last 10% that would make it really good. The Markdown support appears to be incomplete, for example link captions don't work. Export is without options, file organization is weird and inflexible, etc. etc.
