xPad is the ultimate notepad, TextEdit and Stickies replacement for Apple's OS X. With a simple, easy-to-use interface and powerful multi-document features, xPad will quickly become your daily text editor of choice.

With xPad you can create as many documents as you like, all of which are managed in one window. Attached to that window is a drawer containing a list of all the documents you've created. Any document can be selected and loaded instantly—at any time—allowing you to easily create and manage hundreds of documents without cluttering your desktop.

Staying organized with xPad is easy. With the category editor you can create and color-code categories, then quickly assign documents in the drawer. Documents can be sorted by name, date or category. Now you can efficiently manage limitless documents with color coding that provides a constant reminder of your organizational scheme.

You can quickly rename documents, delete one or many, and export a single, multiple, or all your documents in both Rich and Plain Text formats using both drag and drop or conventional panels. You can also instantly export to your iPod, allowing you to read your documents when you are away from your computer.

xPad automatically saves your work, so you never have to worry about manually saving what you're working on or accidentally closing something without saving—and losing all your information.

Here are some key features of "xPad":
one window, unlimited documents
automatically saves and opens your files
sort, categorize and color-code
drag-and-drop to and from finder
export to your ipod, and more

What's New:
Changed shortcuts for next and previous document to CMD+Shift+, and CMD+Shift+. (on US keyboards, this is CMD+< and CMD+>).
Updated preferences and about panel look.
Change the opacity of the document and document info drawers in addition to the main window.
Ability to disable auto saving (xPad will always saves data on exit), and set the auto save interval.
Fixed an export/export all bug where certain files would cause an error.
Fixed a transparency bug.
