AK Notepad for Android is your basic, bare-bones notepad app. The interface is clean, and using it couldn't be simpler. Open up the program and click "Add note" to get started. Once you're done typing away, you can set a reminder alarm for the note, or share it via any of your device's installed applications (Twitter, Facebook, SMS, Gmail, and so on). To prioritize a note, just pin it to your Home screen for one-touch access.
The Settings screen lets you tinker with fonts, font size, and horizontal line display. And if you use the reminder alarms often, you can change the ringtone or, for supported devices, the color of the notification light. AK Notepad also has a few extras for the power scribblers out there, including hash tag support (AK Notepad calls them Labels) for easier searching later, password lock, and syncing to the cloud if you have a Catch.com account.
One thing we would have liked was the ability to create checklists. Making lists is such a common use for mobile notepad apps, it's a wonder that it wasn't built right in. Other than that, we think AK Notepad is a solid option for anyone looking for a bare-bones note-taker without any bells or whistles.
With AK Notepad for Android, you can write anything you want like a shopping list. Set a quick reminder for your note or share it to others by SMS or email. Access your note quicker by creating shortcut on your home screen. The notepad is customizable and simple to use.
What's new in this version:
Version 2.2 includes new control bar, and easier Catch.com sign-up or sign-in.
file renaming cut and paste side loading (SD card) / sync not required for moving files to PC forwarding to [G]mail / facebook / twitter / SMS searching though files within the folder - pretty cool tons of other options
can only import folders not files...this creates duplicate files having two folder areas one in device memory, one on SD... I guess this can be a backup???? Would this be a pro? Hmmm
This has everything that I was looking for. I really like to maintain text files to keep track of things and having the ability to move them to a PC (mounting the SD cards as a drive), edit them (on the device) and move them back is key. The only problem with this is the folder issue. I dislike getting around issues like this, but having a small amount of files in folders mitigate the impact...although still a PInTA.
The cut and paste feature is a little clunky, but the fact that I can do it is HUGE!
