InkPad Notepad is the simple, elegant, easy way to keep notes on your phone, or on the web.
Once upon a time, you had to write down notes in a paper notepad and carry it around with you. If you wrote a shopping list or to do list, you might go to the store and discover you had forgotten your notepad. But how often do you forget to bring your mobile phone with you? Introducing InkPad, the notepad you’ll only forget as often as your phone!
Inkpad Notepad let's you access your notes online on our website. You can create or edit notes from the convenience of your computer's web browser, and always have access to your notes from your phone when you're offline too.
InkPad is designed to look like a paper notepad, and is just as simple to use. When you open InkPad, you’ll see a list of all notes you’ve created. To add a new note, tap on the “+” button at the bottom of the screen.
CREATE TO DO LIST
Create a note as usual, then select the "to do list" button at the top of the note screen.
CREATE SHOPPING LIST
Create a note as usual, then select the "shopping list" button at the top of the note.
EDIT NOTE OR TO DO LIST
Now you can write your note. Just like a paper notepad, you don’t have to do anything special to save your notes, they are auto-saved for you.
As mentioned above, notes are auto-saved. You don’t have to do anything special to save them.
SYNC NOTES ONLINE
Inkpad Notepad lets you sync/backup notes online. You can access your online notes on our website by signing in with the same account you selected in the mobile app.
SEARCH YOUR NOTES OR TO DO LISTS
Inkpad Notepad now gives you an option to search your notes or to do lists. From the home screen, tap on the search icon, then begin writing. As you write, the list of notes will be filtered to only display notes containing the search keyword. Press the "X" button to clear the note search, and view all notes as usual.
At the bottom of each note is a “share” button. Tapping it brings up all the ways to share. Typical ways include email, SMS, etc.
CHANGE NOTE’S TITLE
To change a notes title, tap on the title area at the top of that note.
If you don’t want a note any longer, you can delete it in several ways: 1) Open the note, tap the “delete” button at the bottom of the page. 2) From the main notes screen, swipe-left the title of a note, then tap on “delete”.
To backup a note, press the share button and email to yourself the note you want to backup.
Write To do lists, shopping lists, addresses, email, SMS, Twitter updates*, write lyrics, poems, or even a novel if you feel like it! The uses are limited only by your imagination.

Ratings and Reviews
Please fix the bugs.
Edit: Update seems to have fixed the worst of the bugs, including notes not saving. However, now it’s having trouble syncing some notes that I add to the website first; it’s impossible to highlight/Select some text without using Select All which is incredibly inconvenient, and I can’t move the cursor by holding down the keyboard as you can in iOS. Please fix these minor bugs so we can all have our beloved app back. Thank you.
Changing my review to one star due to no action from developers. I will be transitioning to a new note taking app, reluctantly. The app simply doesn’t save notes on iPhone 8 and has cost me countless lost minutes and hours and information. The ad on top is so obnoxious that it often blocks the text you’ve typed. This has become nearly unusable.
Original review: I’ve been using this app for 5 years and it’s become a fundamental part of my life. I record all of my observations and writings in this app first, and it has come to serve as a chronicle of my emotional rollercoasters across the last half decade. However, I have found it to be almost unusable on iPhone because eight times out of ten, it just doesn’t save my note. This is devastating, as it’s truly a deal breaker. I don’t want to leave this app, so please fix these bugs and you’ll have me for at least another five years.

Hi there, would you mind sending us an email at email@example.com regarding your experience with syncing notes not working? The most recent version (2.0.6) now includes both "Select" and "Select all" in the copy/paste menu, and we're continuing to release frequent updates to improve the app, stay tuned!
It has a few issues.
I used to have this on my Samsung Galaxy note 8 and it worked great so it was one of the first apps I got when I moved over to the iPhone X but on here it keeps telling me that there is not enough room for it to work properly even though my phone is new and basically empty. It also keeps trying to compare the notes on here to notes somewhere else and asking me which one I want to keep. Since I do not have the other phone anymore I wish it would just automatically know I want to keep this one. And the final problem is that the ads alot of times will cover up the top note so that you cannot click on it to open it up. I fixed that last one by putting a blank note as the top note.

Hi there! The latest version (2.0.6) should solve all of the issues you mentioned (the "Not enough room" error, conflicting note versions, and the ad sometimes covering content). If you're still running into any issues after updating, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to help further from there.
Works as it always has
Updating my previously negative review regarding the “new version.” All the features from the older version have been restored such as font size adjustment and drag and drop list items. I have used this app for a long time to organize various checklists and will continue to do so. The main thing I would change if I could is the font used. I believe this used to be an option but I may be wrong. It would be nice to have multiple fonts to choose from, the default font isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing in my opinion. Very minor detail that does not affect functionality though.

The latest version (2.0.6) now includes some other font choices, hope that helps!
