Your phone is always in your pocket, making it the ideal notepad… With the right app, that is. JotterPad X works hard to be that app, with a distraction-free editing mode, Markdown and Fountain support, and a number of themes.
This is a busy niche for Android: We’ve previously looked at Draft, which is my current favorite in the category. There is also LightPaper (which is available for Mac, too) — another lovely and minimal editor. So is JotterPad X better?
In some respects, it is. The themes certainly add something new, and the app has lots of animations and a distinct visual style. But this time, I’ve decided to show, rather than tell. To get a feel for what JotterPad X is like, watch this complete video review:
Writing is a very personal thing, and choosing a text editor is as subjective as choosing a notepad and a favorite pen. JotterPad X feels both mature (save for the Dropbox issue) and unique, giving it a real fighting chance in this crowded arena.
Are you going to try it out? Share your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to know what you thought of the video, too.
