The times we live in are great. The technology we have at our fingertips makes life exponentially easier. The Smartphone alone, with its plethora of apps, has taken us to a place where we can take care of nearly any important matter in less than a minute. This week’s Android app is just one of those apps. InkPad is a simple and easy to use app that allows you to make quick notes on your phone. Gone are the days of pen and paper notes. Personally, I use InkPad for quick notes, “To Do” lists, and most importantly, the grocery list. I cannot tell you how many times in the past I’ve written out grocery lists, only to realize that I had forgotten the list when I arrived at the store. This app eliminates the need for a written list, and it’s rare that I ever forget my phone. InkPad makes lists simple and quick. From the home screen, you can start a new list with no fuss. Once you get the new list started, you can choose the type of list you want to make. At the top of the list page, there is a shopping cart icon for shopping lists, a checked box for “To Do” lists, and a plain old’ piece of paper for a regular list. At the bottom of the list, there are conveniently placed icons that allow you to delete, share the list via text and email, or start another list. The best thing about InkPad is that it automatically saves your lists, so you don’t have to sweat the small stuff. There is also a sync feature on InkPad that allows you to have your lists backed up on the InkPad website. The beauty of this feature is that you need not create a personal account with InkPad; you can sign in using your Google account. If, for whatever reason, your notes are lost on your phone, you can simply go to the website and get your notes back. There is also a save to SD card feature that gives you even more back up. Bottom line is this app is simple, convenient, and makes life a little bit easier. If you don’t have it already, it’s definitely worth picking up.


About Steven Brewer

I’m a lifelong comic book fan. Comics pulled me in at an early age, with influences ranging from Chris Claremont’s historic X-Men run, Walt Simonson’s Thor run, Mike Zeck’s run on The Punisher limited series, Jim Lee’s X-Men, the early 90’s X-Men animated series, and the best cartoon ever made, Batman: The Animated Series. As a kid, these comics and cartoons gave me a new world to go to when the real world wasn’t so nice. Because of this, comic books will always have a special place in my heart. I love everything about comics, and still get the same feeling reading them today as I did when I was a kid. My major in college was psychology, so I love to incorporate that into comics.
