The best miniature computers on the planet

The Jotter quick note application.


Jotter is a quick note taker that can include dates, sketches, spreadsheets, and spreadsheet graphs. You can change the format of sketch and spreadsheet objects. You can also include icons that lead you to word processed documents or to recorded voice and sound files.

Like Help, Jotter is a specialised version of the Psion Data application. That is why users of earlier Psion Epoc Release 3 can mostly imitate it using Data.

Jotter can be set to always start on a new entry, or to open the most recent entry. If unsure as to which file you want to use, start a new one. You can always merge the entries into another file later.

The list display can show when entries were first created, or when they were last updated. The view can show just the first line of each entry, or the entire text. If displaying the entire text, it can be edited. You can also show a split view with both the list of entries, and a card showing the contents.

Entries are listed in the order in which they are created. You can specify they be sorted in that order, or in the date last edited, or alphabetically. You can select ascending or descending sorts.

Entries can be formatted with bold, underline or italics. You can select the font and size. Paragraphs can also be displayed as bulleted text.

This site will look much better in a browser that supports W3C web standards but it is accessible to any browser or internet device, including Psion Web and similar PDA or limited browsers. Netscape 4.x users - turn Style Sheets off. Your style sheet support is too broken to use (sorry). -> epoc -> applications -> jotter
