Write: Tablet Notepad/Journal


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 3.0/4.0+ 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 modeWhen 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 SavingNotes save when you go back to the main screen, when you switch to another App or go to the Home Screen. ✔ Word and Character countSo you can keep track of how much you’ve written.✔ Quickly create new versions of notesYou 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 managementNotes are ordered by standard last-edited-first order and with a tap of your left thumb you can filter by date. You can also do a text search to locate particular notes/entries.✔ (Bluetooth) KeyboardsKeyboards work really well with Write. With a physical keyboard the fullscreen mode really is fullscreen (or as close as Honeycomb allows).✔ Onscreen keyboardAuto-correct is enabled (with a physical keyboard it is disabled) for more accurate writing.✔ Share/SendUsing 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:Works really well with…BoxGmailEmailBloggerDropboxEvernoteSpringPadGoogle+Google ReaderWorks with…Wordpress (line breaks are removed by WordPress, though if you use the HTML sharing then this doesn’t apply and you can easily share formatted content)FacebookGoogle DriveBut should work in similar applications too. It uses a standard Android sharing ‘Intent’. Note on DropboxIf you have the Dropbox App you can both share items to Dropbox and open them from Dropbox; the additional functionality in Write is actually now redundant since Dropbox improved their App.Coming soon:* Improved importing from backup (it is a little slow when there are lots of entries).
