Publish your work
Print your writings to PDF and share them on-the-go at your convenience. Export your work to popular formats such as .docx and .rtf and continue to edit them on those platforms.


Distraction-free screenwriting
Do what you do best, write. JotterPad handles the rest by turning your Fountain script into a professional screenplay, ready to be exported as Final Draft .fdx and PDF. Discover more screenwriting tools available in JotterPad Pro.

    Published date: February 4, 2018

    I spent a long time to find a story writing app that is not annoying to use, and not plane and boring to write with, and then I found Jotter pad. I didn't know what to expect from it, but I actually found it quite lovely to use. Now, I can write stories, novels, poems, reports, and poems in one single app. The only flaw is that I can't seem to change the page colour, but other than that - Jotter pad is AMAZING! Full Review

    I've been using Jotterpad for years now and it still remains my favorite!! This app makes it easy to write on the go while also staying organized. I've tried other apps and, while I do like them, nothing has been able to beat this one. I've never had a single problem with it. Also love that I can save the documents to put them over on my laptop as well. It makes putting together a novel on the go so much easier. Thank you, Jotterpad!! Full Review

    Was an awesome app until it deleted my files, saving only the titles. Unfortunately not all my files had been backed up by me. So, I lost numerous creative writings. Irritating. I don't remember most of them... Full Review

    Fantastic distraction free writing app that has everything you need and nothing you don't. Dev. was very responsive on two occasions with issues I was having. Note: If you get crashes every time you open a document try uninstalling and reinstalling (your documents will remain untouched). I had restored from a Titanium backup and it gave me this problem; a reinstall from the play store corrected it immediately. Update 2/20/18: Still the best writing app out there. Full Review

    I've been using the free version so far, but I like this app so much that I'm more than likely gonna buy the pro version. I've never bought an app for my phone, so with my being interested in purchasing this app definitely means that it's pretty dang good. Also, this is my first review. The app is awesome and I would give it a perfect 5/7. Full Review

    Published date: February 16, 2018

    Hard to evaluate a programme when so little of it is available in the trial version. No immediate way of changing font characteristics such as size or style, not even a little bit, surely an essential. Even "Night Mode" not accessible without the paid for version.. I may have bought it if knew more about what I was buying, uninstalling, going to try WRITER+ instead... Full Review

    Julie Csaki Published date: February 22, 2018

    After a problem with this app, I lost a bunch of work. I tried contacting support, but after a few unhelpful suggestions, I stopped receiving responses. I've tried sending multiple follow-up emails and even submitting a new support request — it's now been over 3 months. Worst customer service I've ever experienced, and I don't trust the app after it lost my work. Especially frustrating since I spent money on the paid version. Would NOT recommend. Full Review
