AkelPad Review

Everybody knows what Notepad is, right? Next to Microsoft Word, it has to be one of the most used programs around. It's just so useful for what it's designed to do - taking simple uncluttered notes. That simple thing is, thankfully, one of the most useful things for our day to day lives. What most people don't know is that there are a ton of programs out there that aim specifically to improve on that simple little program. AkelPad is one of them.

AkelPad aims to bridge the gap between Notepad and Notepad++. Notepad is incredibly simple and can't do much other than inserting text, while Notepad++ has a ton of functionalities that could potentially overwhelm a new user. This program aims to be in between those too - having some of the features of Notepad++ while retaining the accessibility of Notepad. 

It really drives home how much it's meant to be a replacement in the installation, hwere it gives you an option to edit the registry so all programs linked to Notepad will instead be linked to AkelPad. This will go away should you choose to uninstall it in the future, so don't worry. Booting it up will have you notice that it looks almost exactly like Notepad, but with the ability to open multiple tabs and view your document from four different windows at once. It also, like Notepad++, comes with the support of multiple plugins, although they're not as diverse or robust as the ones its more complex older brother has. Still, AkelPad does its job well and is easy to recommend.
