TapNote for Touchpad is a simple plain text editor and is released by One Crayon.
TapNote allows you create plain text documents on the Touchpad and it allows you to sync these to your dropbox account.
The application opens to a demo document. You can then link the application to your dropbox account. You can use this application without Dropbox, but it loses some of its key uses without this.
When you add your document, the title will default to the first line of body text you enter, but you can click on the title at the top to rename.
The user interface is simple and clean, once dropbox is set up on the application you do not have to think about it again. You can sync at any time with dropbox by pressing the sync button, but it will automatically sync when you leave the editing mode.
The interface also has very useful cursor forward and backwards buttons to quickly get back a word or two to fix a spelling.
The application allows you to email the document or print it directly from the device.
On the upside:
- Simple User Interface.
- No bells and whistles, just the options you need.
On the downside:
- Really needs a dropbox account to make the most of this application (dropbox is free)
- No way to add folders (to organise the work)
Overall, this is an excellent application it is simple and does the job it is designed to do. There is even a lite version that you can try out that has much of the paid functionality. One of the best things about TapNote at the moment, is that it allows me to do work on the Touchpad. With QuickOffice still DOA and the lack of office tools, TapNote allows me to write my content on the Touchpad, and then get it from Dropbox when back at my desk to format it into the documents I need.
