Do you have a Kindle in your backpack? One of these days you will, we think. And here’s some related good news….
When you have a Kindle in your backpack, of course, it will allow you to gradually reduce the weight of all those textbooks you carry back and forth from school each day. This could be very, very good for your back, your shoulders, your posture, and all of that … but of course you already knew that, right?
But there’s at least one other thing you’ll be able to eliminate from your backpack if you have a Kindle.
Your homework notebook or calendar!
Because, the good folks at 7 Dragons have released a brand new Kindle App called Notepad (A Note Taking Tool for Kindle) – Just 99 cents on Kindle!
As I have written about various uses for the Kindle for well over three years now, I’ve occasionally noticed times when we tried out various Kindle features — using email and the web come to mind — more to see if we and the Kindle could do certain things than because doing such things was particularly convenient. But here’s a tool that does not slow you down at all, and integrates seamlessly with reading on the Kindle.
- It uses text and text files. You can transfer notes to PC or text files to app.
- It amazes me how fast the typing is with this app.
- There are 2 Font types and 6 font sizes.
- There is a wide array of menu-driven options for searching, saving, sorting, and backing up your notes.
And I’m happy to say that, as you can see in the screenshot, I used it to plot out last week’s Kindle Nation weekly email newsletter.
