Made for people of all ages — and great for kids! — Minipad is a simple text editor for creating stories, editing notes, trying words and discovering the alphabet. Minipad has a minimal feature set to help writers to focus on writing.

• Entries are sorted with the newest ones first (or sort by title or last changed first)
• Typography is clear and the default font size is purposely large
• A slider in the options bubble allows for 5 different font sizes
• No spell checking and no autocorrection distractions
• Deleting stories needs extra taps to help prevent accidental deletes
• Try voice dictation or emojis on the iOS keyboard to make silly stories!

What’s New

Version 1.8

• New iOS home screen widget lets you quickly access your latest stories
• New app icon (the old one is still available in the about screen)
• Requires iOS 14

Awesome… Just two things

I love this app! I love how the title can be an emoji because I have a hard time coming up with names
The two things are
1. Turning on something to check if you spelled a word right
2. Different fonts! I can’t type down characters’ thoughts cuz there are no italics
This app is amazing though. I would suggest this app if you don’t already have it

I’ve been using this app for a while now, and it has been so helpful. I love the fact that it doesn’t correct my spelling of grammar in case I make up a word. I’m currently recreating a fiction series that I made up in third grade. It totally brings my story’s to life. When I use any other apps, it corrects my spelling which is always annoying because my stories have made up places that aren’t actually words and I have to go back and rewrite it. I also love that I can make multiple stories. It has expanded my creativity along with my motivation to keep writing. I’m very young and I still use without any problem (I’m only 10). Whenever I get blank-minded, this app motivates me to continue writing.I really hope you read this review and get this app immediately.

Please read

Okay so this app is great and all but i rated it two stars to get ur attention because u should really read this. Like the other person said, it would be so much more convenient if u put in italics so that we can type out character thoughts. Also it would be extremely helpful to me if your put in a word count at the bottom that measures how many words that you’ve written. This helps me determine how much longer or shorter i should make this story. This app is okay but if you really want to call it a writing app, then you should really consider adding in these and other features that would benefit writers. I hope you read this and i hope that you take the time to add in these changes that me and other writers would greatly enjoy. Byeeeeeee!!!
