Almost perfect.

For a full screen, no distractions text editor this does the job nicely. It has enough options so that you can tweak the text however you want. It gives you word count and it rotates with your screen. It is perfect for writing a quick draft on a tablet. I use it on my Dell Venue Pro 8 and it's great for writing on the go. I can even touch type without much difficulty with the on screen keyboard. It's not a full featured word processor, but it doesn't have to be. It's just for pulling it out and hammering out your word count and editing with something else later. The only feature I'd like added that would make it five stars is autosave, but as old as this latest version is, I won't hold my breath.

Great Minimalist Editor

I really like minimalist editors, but one thing an editor must have is the ability to pick a good font and the colors. This application does everything that you want from a basic editor, and gives you a GREAT font and color selection, which basically puts it in the top two editors for Modern UI in my book. Use Code Writer if you want something with more "editing" features. But if you just want to experience a solid minimalist aesthetic in a well executed editor, Notepad Classic is about as good as I could imagine. The only feature I would change would be to be able to configure the border color of the application separately from the foreground color.

Exactly what I was looking for - easy, simple, and clean without other distractions to interfere with a quality app! Do you have it available for #WP81DP? Love in advance!

Simple yet powerful. Cloud compatible-it can open, edit, save files in Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, etc.. Has spell check with suggestions. Lightweight and fast! Clean interface. Best editor available.

Best Notepad on Store

This is the best notepad on the Windows Store I've ever seen. There's auto-correct, backgrounds, fonts, sizes, font colors, and more. You can even use the fonts you install on your Windows Surface RT tablet or any device powered by Windows 8/RT.

Works great

Includes windows automatic spell checking and word prediction, which I did not find in some other text pad editors. This is really useful on an 8" tablet, and on a desktop computer as well. Only minor issue I see so far is it does not snap properly in half screen on my Lenovo niix 2 8, but it does snap the way it should on my desktop computer display. Not a big deal.

Need controls when snapped in 1/4 mode!!!

The notepad etc works fine as long as your using at least half your screen. When your snapped in 1/4 screen the best option for max use of this app while on a web page, you have no way to control start a new note, save a new one, replace or open another file. HELLO is anyone listening or reading these reviews from real time users!!! Snap it to a 1/4 screen and put controls on it please.........I will renew my review with a 5*. Simple request, should be a simple fix.

It works as promised, and I love the features it does have--word count in plain sight, easy to save... But you can't do italics, bold, etc. Maybe that was a "duh", but when I'm writing by hand, I can underline and bold. When I'm writing on Microsoft, I can italicize and bold and underline with a few clicks on the keyboard. But you can't do that here, for some reason. Italics, bold, and underlining are NOT complicated... It's a necessary tool in expression.
