InkPad Notepad is the simple, elegant, easy way to keep notes on your phone, or on the web.
Once upon a time, you had to write down notes in a paper notepad and carry it around with you. If you wrote a shopping list or to do list, you might go to the store and discover you had forgotten your notepad. But how often do you forget to bring your mobile phone with you? Introducing InkPad, the notepad you’ll only forget as often as your phone!
Inkpad Notepad let's you access your notes online on our website. You can create or edit notes from the convenience of your computer's web browser, and always have access to your notes from your phone when you're offline too.
InkPad is designed to look like a paper notepad, and is just as simple to use. When you open InkPad, you’ll see a list of all notes you’ve created. To add a new note, tap on the “+” button at the bottom of the screen.
CREATE TO DO LIST
Create a note as usual, then select the "to do list" button at the top of the note screen.
CREATE SHOPPING LIST
Create a note as usual, then select the "shopping list" button at the top of the note.
EDIT NOTE OR TO DO LIST
Now you can write your note. Just like a paper notepad, you don’t have to do anything special to save your notes, they are auto-saved for you.
As mentioned above, notes are auto-saved. You don’t have to do anything special to save them.
SYNC NOTES ONLINE
Inkpad Notepad lets you sync/backup notes online. You can access your online notes on our website by signing in with the same account you selected in the mobile app.
SEARCH YOUR NOTES OR TO DO LISTS
Inkpad Notepad now gives you an option to search your notes or to do lists. From the home screen, tap on the search icon, then begin writing. As you write, the list of notes will be filtered to only display notes containing the search keyword. Press the "X" button to clear the note search, and view all notes as usual.
At the bottom of each note is a “share” button. Tapping it brings up all the ways to share. Typical ways include email, SMS, etc.
CHANGE NOTE’S TITLE
To change a notes title, tap on the title area at the top of that note.
If you don’t want a note any longer, you can delete it in several ways: 1) Open the note, tap the “delete” button at the bottom of the page. 2) From the main notes screen, swipe-left the title of a note, then tap on “delete”.
To backup a note, press the share button and email to yourself the note you want to backup.
Write To do lists, shopping lists, addresses, email, SMS, Twitter updates*, write lyrics, poems, or even a novel if you feel like it! The uses are limited only by your imagination.

What's New in Version 1.6
* fixed minor bugs
I have been brainstorming for over 12 hours today and was using this app to write down notes (ironically, I was taking notes on what iPhone apps I want to develop next). The process of writing of the notes was fine, however it's not the writing of the notes that's important, it's the saving of those notes. I just reopened this app to go over my notes from today (I had tons of them), and I am shocked to discover that nearly two-thirds of my notes disappeared! They're nowhere to be found anywhere in the app! WHY!?!? They were there earlier, and now they're just, gone! I have not been this disappointed/frustrated/angered in a very long time. This app is less than worthless, it can make you lose your precious data forever and without warning. Be warned!
I have enjoyed this App thoroughly, until recently. When entering info under a particular category, the screen is cut in half due to the keyboard, but the update will not allow me to get to the end of my input to continue adding on. It keeps the information below the keyboard, which I can not access. If I hit "Done" and go back in, it lets me add more info but quickly starts doing the same thing again.
And, just recently, when I decided to delete something it ended up deleting my list above. It did this to me twice in a row. There is no option to restore deleted lists. That would be a wonderful addition. In the meantime I am frustrated it deleted the lists they did. The information on there was terribly valuable & needed today. Ugh!!!
Has a fatal flaw
I was in a six hour, important professional meeting that started at 9 a.m. I decided to give the program it's first workout. The program appeared to work just fine and have the features that I wanted, though the flashing 2001 style banner ads were a bit distracting. I took several pages of notes. I even received a gmail indicating my notes were backed up on the site and awaiting me.
When I logged in later on my desktop to retrieve, the notes saved there were tagged 9:22 a.m. Uh oh. Both on the iPad and on the desktop website, the app had lost over five hours of work. Aside from taking notes, saving notes is the most basic function. Terrible app.
