Save Notes from your Mobile Phone and Access Online Anywhere


A notepad is very useful if you find yourself suddenly inspired by a new idea and want to write it down so you don't forget it later. But what if you don't have one handy?

npad is the electronic alternative to a paper notepad, and all you need is a mobile phone to save notes online on the go. You may not have a piece of paper and a pen at hand, but I bet you always carry your phone.

Once you register online and tell npad your phone number, you'll be able to text message n@npad.com any sudden thoughts that you want to save for later. You can retrive them later from your phone (via text message) or online via a computer. For faster searching, you can also tag your notes.

Of course, you can also use it to take notes as you browse online.

This seems downright useless... If you have your phone with you & you want to write yourself a note, most phones have a built-in "notepad" function. Why would I access the web, go to the website, enter my user ID & password, type a note, and send it to myself, when I could do the same thing in less than half the time, and not use any air time or incur any messaging costs?! And if I don't have my mobile with me, but I'm on my computer, why wouldn't I just send a text message to myself via email, or just send myself and email to be accessed later via my mobile? And under what circumstances would you find yourself with access to a PC, but no way to get a pen & paper? AND, why use it simply as an online notepad - you're on a computer, so why not use any of the various pre-installed text editors? Why not send yourself an email?

OK, maybe some phones don't have built-in notepads, but you have web access & text-messaging capabilities (otherwise, you can't use npad anyway), AND you have voicemail capability, so again, why use npad?

You make a good point about text messaging costs and how convoluted the whole process can be. I posted about npad mainly for the novelty value (i.e. you can do almost anything with your mobile phone now).

I think the most useful part about npad is actually that you can organize your notes more effectively, which is harder with the pre-installed text editors that most computers come with.
