Looks promising

I've installed it but I don't know how to change font and background for this. Can anyone let me know?

How do you work this thing?

I cant delete, italicize, bold, or much else. I am on the verge of deleting your app. Fix it.

Lost A File

Created a text file. Saved regularly. Created a new document and it asked if I want to save the current document first, I clicked yes. When I went back to the document it was totally blank.

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!

Best editor period

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.
