So I sent my laptop in for repairs and got it back with a wiped HD which was done without permission which in the process deleted my Android dev key which means I cannot update my existing apps in the market! Luckily I backed up all my code but totally forgot about my keystore Now I have to re-upload the apps and start with 0 ratings/reviews. If any of you guys can, please download and give a rating or review to my app. Here is a market link:

Well I couldn't break your app trying to do things which is good. There are a lot of features I would never use that someone else might though. I'm pretty casual with note taking usually just for groceries and little to do lists which your app or Mobisle would work just fine for.

If there's anything in particular you want me to test then just let me know.

I hope a few more places pick up on it. Google really screwed up the market as of late making it difficult to find when performing a keyword search. What's worse as of a couple of days ago. Half (give or take) of app ratings/comments vanished from apps in the market. Lots of angry devs over at Google forums. I hope they can sort it out.

Congrats man, I'm sure that'll help get the name out there. I've always wanted to make an Android app, just haven't put forth any effort yet to do it. Plus there are always dozens of others out there. I think the hardest part would be to start coming up at the top of searches.

You are exactly right and especially now. It used to be better when the market had the "Just In" section but now that they eliminated it it's rather difficult unless you are some huge company and can afford to advertise.

Well polished notes... I'd love to see a few features added though.


Personal color options. Anything besides the drab grey and pinkish color. Give the user a few options to customize the default color, or allow for themes so they can change the background.
Give a method to title the note other than just the first so many characters. Tablets have a huge blank area when just taking the first so many characters. I'll be happy to help debug and test on the tablet element.
What about allowing *boldfaced* _underlined_ and /italicized/ formatting?
The ability to share the same notes across any other android device... I would expect this last one to only be in the paid version.


This is a better app than what I have come up with so far. I'm quite impressed with it. If you would like some help building/debugging, let me know.

How about a menu option in the to-do list that deletes all crossed out items on the list? For example, if I'm shopping and I buy several things on my list it's a pain to delete them all one by one.

Nice idea. But also not sure if you're aware if you hit the left most button and choose status-pending it will hide all completed tasks. Does that work in the mean time?

Do you mean when you export a note? No it's just a plain text file so it will be easily shared with Linux. I can add an encryption option.

Do you mean when you export a note? No it's just a plain text file so it will be easily shared with Linux. I can add an encryption option.

I don't really want to import or export anything, just want to edit a text file (& encrypt some files). Example: I have txt files in /mnt/sdcard/Notes. It looks like your application doesn't just load a file, but it can import a directory? I tried importing that directory and get an error: "path must not be blank"

Yeah you can import a whole directory or a single file. For path blank issue just type the path. Most file managers will give you the path to the directory just copy that and input it.

+ Extras>Text compare now allows for importing and comparing text files
+ Hotstrings - Similar to hotkeys, hotstrings are a great way of saving time for frequently used phrases and wording. To access/create a list of hotstrings, from the main menu choose the Hotstrings option then simply enter a shortcut word on the left then enter some text to the right and save. To apply a hotstring, from within a note hit the edit menu in the top left and click the hotstring on the lower bar you wish to apply.
