1. Cloud Service
Previously, users would have to manually set up their Cloud accounts in the event that they move to a new device, or add their Cloud account to other devices that they may own in order to access it from multiple places.
With the new update, JotterPad will now conveniently fetch your Cloud accounts from your account on the JotterPad app and set it up for you on whichever device you choose to log in to.
Be it iOS, web, or Mac, you do not have to go through the extra hassle of setting up your Cloud Service on a new Android device from here on. Easily share and synchronize your work and data among multiple devices as a single owner with the new update; safe, secure and connected as always.
In our previous announcement, we were excited to share that we now have an array of templates for you to choose from and write with on JotterPad. We are thrilled to announce that you can now access and write with a plethora of templates on Android!
To further enhance and facilitate your writing endeavors, the latest addition to our platform, JotterPad's writing templates will now be available on Android. From novel writing, screenplay writing, to generating a lab report, to creating a cover letter, there are multiple types of templates for you to pick from. These diverse templates take care of your formatting concerns, and lets you focus on the bulk of your writing instead.
This continuously expanding range of templates includes books, letters, contracts, different types of screenwriting, essays, story planners, podcast scripts reports, presentation slides, and others for you to explore in your writing processes.
You now also have the options of printing your work directly from the template, or as a draft.
While both versions will keep the general formatting and layout very much in tact, printing your work from the template creates a much more polished, finalized and professionally formatted document while choosing to print a draft creates a quick preview and gauge of your work. This option will add convenience to your vetting process if you happened to be working offline and require a quick and efficient preview of your work.
To view or print the finalized version of your work, simply click "print" and "print using template (.pdf)", while connected to the Internet connection.
To experience the full function of this option, subscribe to Pro Cloud on JotterPad and reap the benefits of being able to print directly from the templates available.
Customize your Templates
With these writing templates on Android, you also have the space to further customize and personalize your writing Markdown documents. Detailing such as the font size, font-type, line-spacing, and even your page dimensions can be customized to your liking. This can be done using the YAML editor function in the templates.
Parameters such as
makeTitle can be added to create a title page, or
tableOfContents can be added to create a content page in your document.
In addition to the above, more detailed customization can be done for all the templates that are now available on Android. For a more comprehensive list, please refer to our help desk.
