Would you like to insert a tab? Forget it.

Really?!? Hitting the tab key leaves the editor completely and starts tabbing through the save, etc. buttons.

I spent a LONG time making an important file for keeping track of my spending and bills. Next thing I know I open the app back up the next day and try to find the file I created, and YES SAVED... but it was gone. Did an entire computer search and nothing.... I will not be using this again. If I could rate this 0 stars I would

Great but needs something.

The app is great but it really need support for editing and making other file formats.

This app allows me to take notes from a webpage side by side with the snap mode and save them. Word is great, but it doesn't exactly snap like this app. And even if I want a Word file, that's what copy and paste are for.

gr8 for bullet points

whatever you need notepad 8 has it. It is really helpful in high level of schools and I am addicted and I just cant get enough. don't let the spammers blow your minds away with all the junk, but listen to the experts

Potential, Uses advertising

Unlike the picture here in the store, the initial screen where you open an existing file, or create a new file, displays advertisements on the bottom right of the screen. They are a bit jarring, and unexpected. Functionality is good, though. It does the job nicely.

Not What I thought It Would Be

It is not as good as I thought it would be. You can't format at all it is really just for writing stuff down and making lists. It is really good for that though! You can color it but not only one section it has to be the whole document, same with bolding and italicizing...

(Accessible from the 'Settings' Charm) •Font and Font Colour settings (On the app bar) •Added icons to the buttons to enhance multilingual understanding •Fixed an issue with scrollbars •Fixed an issue where the text colour and background colour were potentially the same (Black text on a Black Background) •Fixed an issue where the 'Privacy Policy' element was only ever 768 pixels high.
