Typr is also ideal for those needing versatility when working on a tablet, but is also available for Android smartphones. Its interface is austere and stripped to allow concentration on the moments of writing.However, this austerity is also replicated in the amount of functionality, since no synchronization with the cloud and only allows you to save files locally. But this can also have a positive view, because it works perfectly when you’re offline. Those who want a nice and simple application, typr is a good idea.


Notal is also a fairly powerful editor that allows us to work with Markdown from our mobile. It has a simple, clean style that not only allows us to write but is also good for reading documents. Their differential values ​​include the ability to share notes created in a simple way, as well as several options for navigation to open several notes simultaneously. The text size on the other hand, can be configured to suit our needs.
