He gave me a novel instead" - Madeleine Peyroux
Have you ever needed to quickly type something only to lose the thought while Microsoft Word ponderously booted up — then stopped to download and install updates?
Try a simple text editor.
On a PC; the built-in and easy-to-use Wordpad app pinned to the Taskbar is like an ever-ready extension of your mind. Copy and paste text into any other app. Print, file or delete it like any other file. Works great.
On a Mac; the built-in and easy-to-use TextEdit app kept in the Dock pops open the instant you want it. Copy and paste text into any other app. Print, file or delete it like any other file. Works great.
iOS and Android mobile devices have no frills text editors that work great too.
Mac OS X
