Notepads: The Best Notepad Alternative for Windows 🧐

By papaPutra | itspapaputra | 6 May 2020

Today I tested many of note applications, for Windows.Β Some of them are lacking of features, some of them are placing ads, and some of them are horribly unstable (but still, they released it smfh) πŸ˜”

I like notepad, because it's simple and lightweight. Undeniable my favorite for writing lengthy note on txt. The only downside is, it doesn't support more than 1 undo and no dark mode.

Until I found this gem...


pads. yes. πŸ˜€πŸ‘Œ

Can't disagree more that you need "s" for the pad, because nobody only wear 1 pad right? 🀣 oh, or you didn't even use pads at all?!?!!1!1! πŸ‘€πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

Anyway... πŸ˜…

Notepads is the one I looking for. It's almost as same as Visual Studio Code, but simple and lightweight, yet share the same feel of Notepad. And guess what, it support dark mode and more than 1 undo!! β€πŸ’•πŸ’–πŸ‘πŸ‘

For a quick overview, here some haikus that I stole from

I like those haikus.

Anyway, do you see what i see? πŸ‘€

The feel of Notepad. πŸ˜©πŸ‘ŒπŸ”₯ Reinvested.

No ads, no learning curve, nothing stressful while using the app... and most importantly, it's FREE πŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

To its creator and developers, thank you for creating such a worthy app to have and making it open and free! πŸ™ŒπŸ‘

I'm here to write and share every worthy stuffs that I've tested myself, this app met my criteria and I truly appreciate it.

Even if it's not really well-known yet, it's too hard to not recommend this app for your everyday use on Windows, especially if you need a more reliable app to simply edit your text-based files.

That's all, what a great find. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
Have a good day and see you on my next post πŸ‘‹
