What is Drive Notepad App? [tools]

This is one of the most useful notepad I’ve used, the key thing for me is it’s directly linked to my Google drive, so when I make changed and save them it saves directly to my cloud storage.

It’s quite feature rich as well, it’s great on so many levels and have it open as well.  I use it mainly for updating budget information though I also have a spreadsheet for that.  Just being able to make a simple note in a list is very handy.

On the left side you will see a list of tabs for Current File, Find/Replace, New/Open, General Settings and About/Help.  I’ll give you details for each tab below:
