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.

✔ Markdown Support

Markdown is a way of adding formatting to plain text and additional features such as HTML links. Write optionally (activate via the settings menu) treats your notes as Markdown and (in Android 4.0+) highlights some of the major elements such as titles while editing.

✔ 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).

✔ Spellcheck

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+).

✔ Android L Support

I'm planning on updating this to properly use Android L on compatible devices (the new version of Android which will probably be released around October 2014) on or soon after launch.

✔ Dropbox

If you are a Dropbox user checkout Write Notebook as this offers full background sync, support for phones and a new interface.

    Write can't see files with "md" extension in its Dropbox folder — could you please fix this?

    Love it, use it all the time! Not sure why I can no longer put anything but the editing page in night mode, though. The main page is now difficult for me to read....

    An indispensable tool worth being a stock one (you dig MS Word?)_ Very useful to me for reviews drafts, avoiding me to re-write them when connection fails so each time gotta copy them to clipboard_ quite annoying. The share option offers you all the choices to use your writings and you can revise and edit them directly.

    Distraction-free, eye-friendly writing app that works great for first drafts where you need to just buckle down and write. Even better if you Bluetooth it to a keyboard.

    I love how well this app integrates with my theme and keyboard. Only one problem, though; when editing, the text appears in one continuous line rather than word-wrapping and taking up the whole screen, as pictured in screenshots above. I'm running CM 11 on my Nook HD. Is this a device-related quirk?

    I love this ap so far, minimal, no distractions, different modes and settings, and much more! But for some reason my spell check is not supported on my device (Samsung model: SM-T210R). Please fix or update?

    This is very very nice for writing on but it would be so much better if I could use it in cascade or duel view on my Samsung.
