Quick Pad is a NotePad replacement which is designed to quickly jot down notes.
It offers features such as the ability to use Rich Text and support for emojis, but it’s main selling point is support for an Always On Top mode via Microsoft’s Compact Overlay API.
This is accessible via a large button in the UI which makes it easy to switch into and out of and allows users to easily collect notes from web pages or applications which do not make it easy to copy and paste information. This much-loved feature is particularly useful when doing research or taking notes.
The app has been updated to support multiple instances, and the developer is working on auto-saving, a major missing feature from the native Notepad app.
The app is normally $0.99, but is free for a limited time.
