Write: Tablet Notepad/Journal

The Good Sleek, minimalist design and a variety of fonts make it easy to get in the zone while you're writing with Write.

The Bad The $2.99 price seems a bit steep for such a simple app. Also, it needs an archive or trash folder and compatibility with phones.

The Bottom Line If you're looking for power features, Write doesn't have them. Otherwise, it's a perfect app for tablet owners who want to get focused on their writing.

Write: Tablet Notepad/Journal

For a minimalist, no-nonsense text editor for your tablet, look no further than Write. Great for students, Write offers only a simple blank screen (choose from black or white background) and a blinking cursor, which helps minimize distractions so you can focus on finishing that big paper that's due in a few hours. Just fire it up on your tablet, hook up a Bluetooth keyboard or other input device, and get in the zone.

When you first launch Write, you'll see a Guide document giving you the rundown on how to use the app. If you'd like, you can open it up and read it, but I would suggest jumping right in and playing around with its text instead. It should be pretty easy to figure out. Before starting your own doc, choose a theme via the menu in the top-right corner of the Home screen. The Night theme gives you white text on black background; the Day theme offers the opposite scheme. Once you're done, hit New, either on the left-hand column or on the top-right of the Home screen to get started.

Within your document, you can choose from nine different font styles and seven different text sizes. It's worth noting that your choices here will only affect the active document, whereas your theme choice affects all of your documents. At any point while you're writing, you can add a title to your piece via the Action Bar at the top.
