Fast Notepad

Fast Notepad

True to its name, this app is fast but it lacks basic functions like text formatting and you can't attach an image or record audio. I like the note colors, clean UI, and that you can protect a specific note or the entire app with a password or your fingerprint. Best of all, the Developer actually responded to email inquiries which is a rarity in my experience. This is not the best note taking app but it's OK for quick note taking.




  • Couldn't scroll up and down with my finger when first editing a note but that worked on edit
  • Web site is empty
  • When in dark mode, the note colors don't match what color you choose, they're fugly colors


  • Would be better if title was in the title bar to reduce space consumed
  • No inline or separate checklists
  • No audio recording
  • No image attachments
  • No text formatting
  • No labels
  • Not obvious in a note if it's started or not, just resizing the star maybe fill it in white if starred
  • Sharing a note via email should put the first line as the subject line


  • Clean UI
  • Color a note with 12 colors
  • Star a note
  • Undo and redo
  • Dark mode
  • Themes (but bright colors)
  • Password for app (not individual notes)
  • Fingerprint on app
  • Can change text size (in settings)
  • Export and import
  • Mark a note completed
  • Folders
  • Reminders
  • Recycle bin


  • Simple reminder setting
  • Fingerprint lock for the app
  • The Developer actually responded to my email!


  • Menu options to go to the top or the end of the note
  • Ability to quickly launch from Android notifications
