Since that time, many, many new devices have been released, and readers today have lots of alternatives for notetaking.
On the newer touchscreen devices like the Kindle Fire, the best way to approach the issue is to search the Amazon App Store for a notetaking app. For the older and newer e-ink models, there is a great notetaking app that also provides calendar support. You can get the app here: Notepad Plus. Thanks for visiting EduKindle! If you are like me, your pocket is full of little notes and reminders written on tiny, crumpled slips of paper.
Sony and reMarkable’s dueling e-paper tablets are strange but impressive beasts
With the full keyboard, I always wondered why the Kindle did not provide for personal notetaking as part of the basic set up. In order to solve my problem, I thought I would just convert and upload a singe page document and then keep my notes on the Kindle. Once it is loaded on your Kindle, this is what the screen will look like:. You can also view and edit the note by selecting it with the scroll wheel; if you access your note this way, you will also be given the option to delete it.
Nifty, huh? I have included this document for free download on the Downloads page.
Hi, for the e-ink Kindles like the Paperwhite, you need Notepad Plus see link in post. Hi Ammiel, the notepad feature that I designed was for the original e-ink Kindle with a keyboard. I think you can now find many notepad-like apps for the Kindle that do more than my solutions did for the older Kindles. Thanks so much for your comment and request! Hi Willd!

Now I bumped into your website and found that you seemed to have solved it. Thanks god! I was considering to buy whether the Kindle Keyboard or the Kindle 3. Does this feature of yours work in any of those? I am outside of the US, would that be a problem?
I read that some apps are not available abroad. Hi Jessie, and thanks for the feedback. We did not design our notepad for the Fire. I think Amazon can issue a refund for the purchase if you contact them. So sorry for the inconvenience! Good article. You can also use Clippings. Thanks for mentioning that for my readers!

I think I published that post about a year before Clippings. Hi there. Thanks for the helpful article. Any way to transfer it there as a note? You are commenting using your WordPress.

Poor paper. They have experienced mixed success, each working and failing in different ways; but these devices left me optimistic about future possibilities — while at the same time clinging tenaciously to my notebook and pen. Both support a stylus and fingertip for input; both have an unlit monochrome screen; both are refreshingly thin and light grams, mm thick ; both have their own dedicated app; and both aspire to replace printed documents and scrolling through PDFs on your laptop. Both are also rather expensive. At least, not yet. This handsome devil is the sequel to one I remember handling at CES years ago, and it has been given a significant, if not radical, upgrade.
Think scientists reviewing studies, lawyers going over case files and so on. The reMarkable and yes, they do the camel caps thing is the sort of crowdsourcing success I like to see.
An original and ambitious idea accomplished with hard work and ingenuity, and at the end of it all, a viable product. The team was simply enamored of the idea that an e-reader-type device should be more interactive, allowing you to sketch, annotate documents and share them live. To that end they worked for years, eventually even consulting with E Ink, which makes the displays in question, to produce a screen that not only looks like a printed piece of paper, but feels like it when you write on it.
As far as providing a superior platform on which to read through documents that are mostly monochrome — studies, lawsuits, books — both devices succeed admirably. If I had to give the edge to one of the devices strictly in display quality, it would have to be the DPT. Slightly whiter whites and better contrast give it the edge, even though technically the reMarkable has a higher DPI versus A grid on the screen is just visible when you look close, but rarely bothered me when reading from a normal distance.
The reMarkable and its bezel fit comfortably within the screen area of the DPT. Not everyone actually wants to read on such an enormous device, and documents not intended for that size can blow up to comical proportions.

This objection applies to the reMarkable, as well, but less so. Sony does address this problem with the ability to show two portrait mode pages at once while the device itself is in landscape mode. If I had to choose between one size and the other, I would go with the reMarkable in a second.
