    Thank you! I was going nuts trying to figure out which notepad to use on my phone! I’m still not completely sure which one I want but you really helped narrow it down.

    Problem is there are multiple apps in the Android market called only “notepad” or “simple notepad”. It would have been nice to specify the developer’s name. Also, I no longer see “AK Notepad” due to some change in the company’s business model.

    I would also suggest Sec-Notes. It has all features of the apps mentioned and on top of it has Auto backups to Google Drive and Dropbox.

    I keep seeing the auto-save feature listed for most of the apps i’ve checked out..
    But i have 2 notepads on my phone, both auto-save when you exit, and neither have an undo option.
    So if i accidentally delete half my note, which happens alot for some reason, there’s no way to get it back… FRUSTRATING!
    Anyone know of a notepad app with an “undo” option, or at least will give you the option of exiting the note without saving the changes made?
