The Android Notepad Safe Notes Resource Page

You probably won’t find a single review of the Safe Notes for Android app on the entire Internet.

Safe Notes app is listed on this site is because of its focus on notepad security that may be valuable to some Android phone and tablet users.

The primary feature contained within this app is the Safe Notes pincode lock that keeps the notes encrypted with 128-bit encryption. The app appears to create an encrypted database of notes on the user’s SD card. When the user no longer wishes to keep the note, he can destroy the note or the entire database for that matter.

This app is ideal for those who wish to store confidential information such as passwords or other sensitive data in a note that is locked and encrypted while remaining quickly accessible to the device’s real owner.

Users can also choose the set up a reminder question in the event that the pin code is lost. By leaving the pin code blank the user allows for the reminder question to work much like a password.

The user may also exercise his right to send a Safe Note from his Android to another destination via email or text message. Also included as a feature within the app is an auto-save feature obviously designed to protect the user from unexpected data loss and the need to manually save the note time after time.

This is probably not an app for those who are doing serious note taking but it isn’t a bad idea for securing sensitive information such as passwords. It is important to note that a user can not create a note in excess of 5000 individual characters. This obviously limits the number of potential applications for the app but should provide more than enough application for all of the basic security-related needs of the Android notepad user.

An ad-free pro version of the app may be downloaded from the Android market for 99 cents.

The app has been somewhat popular as it has received in excess of 1500 reviews at the Google Play store. Reviewers have granted the app an average rating of 4.3.

The app appears to be updated and maintained by the developer, you go software. Users are on notice to update and run Safe Notes prior to upgrading to Android Gingerbread 2.3.

If you need a notepad app just to store passwords and other important information then this is the app for you.
