portable word processor Jarte is a small, portable word processor whose documents are fully compatible with Word and WordPad. It uses the Windows built-in word processing engine at its core, but offers far more functionality then WordPad. This makes Jarte a great replacement for both the WordPad word processor and the NotePad text editor programs. Jarte opens rich text and plain text documents including DOC documents created with Microsoft Word. Some of the features include multi-document support, formatting tools, customizable background pattern and color schemes as well as clip functions, spell check, multi-level undo, portable USB drive installation and much more.

Mashup wordpad with some Onenote functions 5 stars by Wastrel Feb 28, 2013 (Read all my 17 reviews)
Mashup WordPad with some OneNote functions, and you've got Jarte! The interface takes a little getting used to because there's so much there compared to simple WordPad. There's an exceptional attention to detail, also evident with the online help. Jarte Plus adds some features which you might find useful, but the free version has enough for me to want to pay the fee. With the document formatting and embedding along with the screen capture and "favorite" features, I can do just about everything in Jarte that I've been relying on OneNote for over the past decade--all in a nice portable format (which makes it easier to keep in a TrueCrypt drive). show Review details
Sort of a let down 2 stars by JMMannion Aug 13, 2010 (Read all my 25 reviews)
I used the free version periodically for about five years then bought the Jarte Plus version a few weeks ago I am a little disappointed. I got everything the Plus version promises, however, the document save format is not up to snuff. Lots of problems if I want to move the format to MS Word, OpenOffice, IBM Lotus and so on. The price was not a bank-breaker, but I was a little disappointed with the entire Plus package. I do like creating backgrounds in Photoshop and changed the background to suit my mood. Other than that, I'll stick with MS Word which I have been using since the mid Nineties. I do keep IBM Lotus and OpenOffice on the drive mainly because OpenOffice has such a fantastic PDF converter built-in. I would recommend the free version of Jarte, but the update deserves consideration. The program is cute, but not for serious work. J. Mannion show Review details
What a cool program! 5 stars by nobull2 May 02, 2008 (Read all my 25 reviews)
I just love Jarte. Under File options you can use File associations with Jarte if you prefer. I did and now the pages come up super fast. Microsoft Goodbye! I have found a much faster and easier program. It is a small program and I just love it for most of my applications. IMO show Review details
