notepad.cc

From Jacob Bijani: notepad.cc, “a piece of paper in the cloud.”

How it works: Go to notepad.cc and you’ll see a white rectangle, suitable for typing. Your page will have its own URL — http://notepad.cc, followed by randomish letters and numbers. You can change the URL to something more recognizable and add a password if you like.

The advantage of notepad.cc over the also-nifty browser-notepad trick: with notepad.cc, you can compose or access text on any device via your URL. That appeals to the ten-year-old secret agent in me, hugely so. Notepad.cc is way cool, and free.

I found my way to notepad.cc via a Daring Fireball link to a page of Safari extensions. I’m surprised that I’d never heard of this service before.

7:05 p.m.: Notepad.cc’s bottom-of-the-screen options to change a URL, add or remove a password, and share a link appear to be unavailable in iOS 8.

Hmmm...I got Cyrillic porn on my Android. :(

I’m puzzled: I’ve been to notepad.cc at least a dozen times today, and it’s perfectly fine. Maybe you went to something other than plain old notepad.cc?

I can't reproduce the effect, so I'm not sure what happened. Thanks for the pointer to an interesting service. And thank you Google Translate.

You’re welcome, Tom. I’m glad the service is working for you.
