I use Notepad very often. I like it. It’s simple and a great way to learn coding since you don’t have any of those helpers you find when using IDE (Integrated Development Environment).
However I find that Notepad is missing a very simple yet crucial function - auto save. One of the problems with Windows is that it tends to restart itself for updates. I also don’t like to click ‘Save’ often. I prefer to save it automatically. So I created my own version of Notepad that runs on Windows/Mac/Linux. I call it FreePad because…well, it’s free and it has all the features of Notepad as well. I will release the software for downloading soon.
