    TxtPad Lite brings to Android the basic functionality of Notepad on Windows that developers have come to love. While not everyone will find this application to be incredibly useful, and even developers won't find it useful all of the time, it certainly comes in handy when you're in a bind or just need to take some quick notes.

    Using the App

    When you open the application, you are provided with a very simple text editor. Along the bottom of the screen there is a Toolbar where you can have quick access to the frequently used functions of notepads.

    Pressing the Menu button will provide several options:


    Within the Settings, you can do obvious things like turn off word-wrapping and change font size, but also changing the file encoding, and turning on an autosave feature. You may also disable / enable the toolbar, and even customize what shows on the toolbar based on a list of options.

    The Bottom Line

    Ultimately, it isn't particularly enjoyable texting for such a long period of time, and I have the physical keyboard of the G1. Would be especially annoying with using just the soft keyboard. However, when partnered with applications like like AndFTP, its usefulness is greatly increased. TxtPad Lite is a solid application worth trying out for yourself. It is free on the Android Market.

    This whole review was written with TxtPad Lite.

    I don't know what app and what screen shots everyone else is seeing, but I just installed this thing and I have NO menu items along the bottom of the screen. When I bring up the menu, it's possible to pretend to save the file, but when you try to reopen it in the app it's nowhere to be found, and there's nothing written to the sd card when I look at it in windows explorer.
