KindleNotes - A friendly note app for Paperwhite (1 & 2) and Touch

KindleNotes v. 0.3:

(Kindle Menu / KUAL compatible app)

Code:
Version v. 0.3
- Fixed "missing buttons on the right" bug
- Critical update: Fixed moving-note instead of copying-notes during exports
- Better notes icons
- Minor improvements

Version v. 0.2
- Better overall performances
- Notes are now in an editable format in notes folder
- Saving state is now notified in a more accurate way
After Kindle Menu and KindleGallery, I'm sharing with you the last born of the Kindle App series: KindleNotes!!!!!

As its predecessors, I've written it from scratch for you, Kindle users only!

It's really tiny (73.3 kbyte uncompressed), and as usual based on HTML+JAVASCRIPT+BASH languages.

KindleNotes supported gestures:
- Swipe-right: bigger fonts
- Swipe-left: smaller fonts
- Double tap: default fonts


You can write up to 5 different notes, and export them also into documents folder or leafad app (if it is installed!). Native predictive text is supported.

For best result and loading times, I suggest you to install this app from the whole Kindle Menu bundle pack, v. 0.8 and above. In fact, this app is mainly thought as support tool for Kindle Menu users.

TODO:
- Add support for text selection
- Add copy/past tools (requires text selection before)
- Add an alterative, faster keyboard (matchbox-keyboard)
- Add a way to import text from other files

I'd like to see how does this app show on Kindle Touch device (I've tested it only on my PW), so any screenshot is welcome!

Enjoy!


Note for developers: I know that the code is quite "rustic" to understand now, I'll make some order before next updates.

Yes, if you watch in Kindle Menu TODOs you can find:
Code:
- Bundle the app "Osmo", when ready, and others
It will be one of the best app for Kindle ever!

P.S. my new note app is just fast/nice looking solution, not meant to replace Leafpad, Osmo, or other great stuff

follow these directions to install KUAL:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=203326

Once this is installed you can install other programs such as this one that will show as buttons in the KUAL menu.

You can then also load KindleMenu:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=225860 as a pretty GUI for launching items.

Aeris: I have an issue that after saving a note, the buttons don't show on the bottom (well, just barely) where do I change that?

Attached are two screenshots from Kindle Touch. Second one is with the keyboard hidden (done by pressing home button) so you can see better where the buttons appear on the screen. Except for the placement of the buttons everything works fine.

Edit: Landscape is ok, see third screenshot

Thank you both for reporting!

(old message, read below instead)
Spoiler:
Could somebody please try to lower the width value in #Textarea (stylesheet folder, portrait.css file) until the right bar comes visible, and tell me the value? Please lower it 1pt at time, because on PW it already looks well as it is

You must follow the instructions here:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=205064

Once installed Kual Menu, you will be able to install Kindle Menu and KindleNotes also, extracting the archive folder your main kindle folder from USB

Damn, there is a little problem... seems that css file is cached, so even if you try with my method, nothing different will show.

Try this way: after modifying the file as suggested before, replace:
href="../stylesheets/common.css"
with:
href="../stylesheets/common.css?version=0.1"

in header1.html file (html folder)

The decimal number must be changed everytime you modify something, or you won't be able to see the chages.

Sorry, I know this is annoying, but can't understand while Kindle Notes caches css file, and other apps don't

Quote:

Ok, thank you Thomass!

UPDATE: faster debug method. Ignore the above request, just add this rows:

Code:
<style>
#Textarea{
width:220pt;
}
</style>
in header1.html file (html folder) file, just below this one:
Code:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../stylesheets/common.css" />
And try reducing width value 1 by one until the bug is gone. Then let me know the value. Thank you!

perhaps "absolutely" positioned "floated" divs might be an option in the future...?
just a thought.
