Thanks for your help. I'll try your iideas. I'm thinking more of reading text flies taken off my computer though wrtiting one now and then might come in handy. These are just short notes about things I keep on my thumb drive I'm surprised one of the apps on the device can't handle them. I guess I could convert them to Word documents and use DocsToGo, but that seems like a couple of steps that should''t be needed.
I'll have to check out "MySettings for security. Swipes might be more convenient than a password anway.
