In this Windows 8 app highlight post, we will go over a useful app currently available for download in the Windows Store. Notepad 8 is a simple yet useful notepad app available for both Windows 8 and Windows RT, for those who have a Surface RT tablet.
“Notepad 8, a Windows 8 style version of Notepad. Supported on all architecture (ARM, x86, x64), it works on both Windows 8 RT and Windows 8 Pro. This Notepad is designed to be quick and powerful, allowing the creation and editing of plain text files (*.txt),” the app description reads. The author of the app notes that this app is nearly at version 2 and comes in two different versions, one with ads and one without. Version 2 of Notepad 8 is slated to have font and color changing abilities, as well as the ability to open recent documents and a share option. So far this app is evolving into something nice and useful for those who want to have a “Metro” styled version of the standard Notepad desktop application. Currently, users can open, edit, and save .txt files. You can open files in the app directly from the desktop as well as navigate through the Windows File Picker UI to choose your file.
