Ever since I started using Android, I’ve been looking for a beautiful text editor with Markdown and Dropbox integration. I might have been spoiled by my experience with iOS, but nobody can deny the great apps available for writers in that ecosystem. I’ve always hoped to find something similar in simplicity on the Android platform, without sacrificing the advanced functionality many Android users often scoff about when they see iPhones.
I’ve tried just about every Markdown-related app available on Google Play, but I never felt I had found one that suited my needs until recently with Lightpaper Pro. It isn’t perfect, but it has most of the functionality I’m looking for and then some. Read on to find out if Lightpaper Pro is for you.
As a writer I need to be able to write wherever and whenever I can. However, a problem I recently came across was how can I write without an internet connection? After purchasing a Nexus 7 I desired a word processor with ability to express my ideas offline – but unlike iOS, Android doesn’t come with an integrated notepad app.
This was a problem, and I needed a solution. Fortunately, I came across Write, a notepad app which was designed specifically for tablets. I was impressed, and happy to fork out the couple of dollars it cost.
