This is a remake of the 'Papyrus' application by Chris Lathan with some additional features:
- The first line of a note may contain any symbols, included ones, which are restricted by filesystem (?, /, *, etc.).
- Name of a note is automatically changes to reflect the first note line after modification.

- Option to cancel modifications to a note.
- Notes list may be sorted by name, not by date only.
- Ability to use subdirectories.
- Ability to encrypt notes (AES-256). The first non-empty line of a note is not encrypted.
- Search for note names and plain text notes content including subdirectories. Ability to save search strings to quick search for them again. Regular expressions allowed.
- Automatic detection of location of removable storage card if a corresponding option selected in the preferences.

After All These Years It may be older but it still delivers in a big way. Tried dozens of note-taking apps & this still blows the majority of them away because it's so well laid out, has a great UI and functions without any lags, cache buildup or force closes of the phone - something few newer apps can claim. Like Papyrus itself, this is a timeless classic in a world of poor imitators. Nuff Said!

Deleting encrypted notes I love this app, it's the first and the last app I'll download to store my notes. But when you encrypt a note and then delete it, it doesn't ask for a password... So actually everyone can delete my notes. Please change this?
