We store your notes locally on your phone. We do not store your notes on the SD card. We choose not to store notes on the SD card for privacy concerns; any app on the phone can access files on the SD card. When they are stored locally, only AK Notepad can access the files.
Wow Rose. That kind of sucks. I wish I had known that. Perhaps your company could do a better job of saying that. I just sold my EVO and thought that my AK notebook stuff was backed up on the SD card (and backed up to my computer). So I guess that means I've lost everything. I had a LOT of very important stuff in AK notepad, including some passwords that were really hard to get from the central IT department. I may never be able to get them to give those up again.
I think I'll be using something other than AK notepad as I rebuild this store of information. I REALLY wish you'd have made a point of explaining this when I first installed the app. I'll be warning the 100 or so Android users in my office to avoid it as well.
One last question: how were we supposed to move our data to a new phone then without sending my store of company passwords to your servers (sorry, I don't trust any company enough for that)? Do you expect us to re-type all that data every time we buy a new phone?
Not using AK Notepad is no big loss, it's OK, but nothing astounding. It's not like there isn't a dozen just like it.
