View Full Version : Margin of error: a note to "writing pad" developers

May 27, 2010, 05:29 AM
I've bought a dozen apps for writing, taking notes, organizing my ideas, and so on. All of these allow landscape orientation, but most insist on showing a list of available files in a column on the left even when I'm focusing on a single document.

What's the point of that? Why take up useful screen estate with a margin serving no purpose after I've selected the note I wish to work on? I'd rather enjoy a "full screen writing experience" if I'm going to use the full keyboard, which could be complemented by a drop-down menu to choose other notes stored in the app.

At least allow the margin to slide away out of sight!

Totally agree! To be fair, this problem is not limited to just 3rd party devs, Apple's own Notes app also suffers from this problem.
