What People Say About EditPad Lite

These are just a few from a long list of unsolicited testimonials we have received from our users.

B. Smoak

“I just had to let you know that I’ve been using EditPad Lite for a while now and I Love It! I’ve recommended it to my family and friends with high marks for quality, speed and features. I have used many different Notepad clones trying to find the balance between user friendliness and utility. EditPad Lite represents the fusion that finally brings balance to the Force.”

“I have been remiss in not sending this email sooner. I was turned on to EditPad Lite by a fellow coworker years ago. At the time, I did not anticipate how dependent I have become on this wonderful piece of software. I could not count the ways it has helped me.”

“I have used the freeware version of EditPad for about a year, and I wanted to thank you for making such a great program available for home use. If I were in a position to, I’d certainly buy EditPad Pro just so I could pay you for your software (I’m a poor graduate student, so that’s not in the cards just yet).

“Yours is one of the few programs on my PC that I cannot remember ever having crashed, or caused a crash. It doesn’t freeze. It is tiny, so it doesn’t slow the system down. EditPad is one of the few programs that has free reign over my PC—I configured ZoneAlarm to let EditPad do whatever it wants. And it never messes with anything!

“EditPad has lots of features, but none that contribute to bloatware. I am sure that EditPad Pro is the same—and its list of added features look great too.”
