UPDATE March 24, 2015 - Back on Play store after removing the infringing stuff claimed by Apple. Only thing is I'm losing all my ratings/reviews/users (6+ million downloads) and any previous users will have to download a different package now. If you paid for a previous version and don't want to repurchase no worries just email cost to you guys. Lastly you can easily move all notes over to this version. On old version menu>backup(auto) then on new version below just menu>restore(auto). Any questions just post here or email me of course

Hello XDA, I've made a somewhat hybrid notepad app similar in appearance to that of the standard iPhone one but more features than I care to list to be honest. My main goal is to keep the app simple enough to use for casual users but powerful and feature rich enough for the advanced group. I've listed the major points below but their are many more than that and I'm constantly adding to it. I'm always open for suggestions so feel free to drop them off in this thread and I'll be sure to respond

Thank you to the great people at stands4 ( for the API usage!

Dude, I'm not joking, this app is awesome!
It looks great and the features are really great. I've only been playing with it for 10 mins, but I'll send you a PM with some constructive feedback once I've had a chance to properly test it out.

Pretty cool for sure. Needs a widget to compete with other note taking apps. Good job so far.

awesome app. lots of features, just my ideas, but this app would be great if you included these :
--widget that shows the contents of that particular note.
--that widget's fonts must be resizable, for people with big screens or small ones.
--oh, improved UI instead of pressing the menu key for almost everything, meaning you gotta move the ads somewhere else

just my opinions on what can be improved. AWESOME APP THOUGH. oh, and no offense meant
