Perfect Kindle App...for me...maybe for you!

Friday, March 18, 2011

The one feature that I had hoped to find on my Kindle was a note taking one. I found out that I could take notes but they had to be linked to a book. I guess I could have created a fake PDF and linked to that but opted not to bother.

Recently I found a brand new app, Notepad, that does exactly what I want! Best part is that it costs only 99 cents. WHOO-HOO!!

Here are some notes from the Kindle Review Blog:
Things the Kindle Notepad App is Not

It’s not a Word Processor – there’s no spell check and no copy/paste.

It’s not Free – We’ve priced it at $1 to ensure as many Kindle owners can get it as possible. However, it’s not free since it wasn’t free to make.

It’s not an ebook reader – You won’t be able to open up really big text files. It’s a notepad and it’s meant for notes and not for writing books or reading books.

It’s not magic.

It doesn’t put form over function. Example 1: Between making the typing really fast and making the fonts anti-aliased, we chose the former. Example 2: Between making the app fast and responsive and adding animations and elaborate backgrounds, we chose the former.
There are currently 17 reviews, all 5 star. I should add mine, would also be 5 start. I love the fact that I can be out and about, reading my Kindle and when something strikes, I can add a note. Later I can just review my notes or transfer them to my laptop.

Anyway, just wanted to pass this along to all my Kindle fiends...errr, friends. LOL!

Till next time - keep on rollin',

NOTE: Duplicating this on my Hopping Through Life blog...if you read it here, you won't need to read it there.


  1. I love cool tools. I use the note function on my phone quite a bit. I can forward them to my computer if I want. I use a Nook reader, and don't know if it has such a feature. So far I haven't found the need to make notes as I read. If I have an observation I sometimes speak it into my phone as a voice recording. Another great phone tool.

  2. That's one thing I cannot get with..the E readers...I gotta have a real book in my hand...Guess it's my stubborn old age talkin'.!

  3. I haven't gotten into E-readers, but I could certainly use the note-taking part:)

  4. I have a Kindle - sounds good to me. thanks!

  5. I just found out about that app too. I haven't bought it yet, but probably will. I'm not sure how much I'll use it. I do tend to make notes all over the place though. Maybe this would help...or maybe it would just be one more place to look :)

  6. THANK YOU, Donna, for sharing info about this app. I think this will be one of the best $1 buys ever! Keep writin' - we love your blog. And our Ms. Minnie sends a 'woof' to Sadie, too.

  7. I have the Notepad app on my iPhone and I use it frequently - I need it because I suffer from CRS.


We're waiting.....
