Default Notepad

Here is my attempt to create a note taking app.

-Read mode without any keys in display, activated by arrow key
-Screen orientation changes by accelerometer (portrait and landscape)
-Keeps a list of files that you have saved
-Changable colors, as well as different types of cursors (more colors may be added later)
-Autosave on exit can be switched on/off

-For regular note taking I'd suggest setting left right scrolling to "no" and automatic keys to "yes". This makes up-down scrolling a little faster, and when you reach the end of the screen the word you are typing will be placed on the line below.
-For programming lua I'd suggest setting left right scrolling to "yes" and automatic keys to "no".

-Can be placed anywhere by touching the screen. When touched where there is no text, the cursor will be placed in the nearest line.
-When in readmode, you can zoom in and out, and scroll to the line you want to edit. Tapping the line will place the cursor at the end of this line. Tapping arrow key again will change zoom to normal.
-Can be moved forward/back one character at a time with the "left" and "right" buttons at the top-right of the screen.

Phone keyboard:
-When you put the player upright the keyboard will change to a phone keyboard for sms-style typing. (can also be hidden with the arrow key)
-When typing sms-style, you can tap the screen to write a character to the screen without having to wait. For example when you want to type "aa"; tap "2", tap the screen, and tap "2" again. (when you don't tap, the character will be written to the screen in about 1-2 seconds)

-Files that have been saved will appear in the loadlist. The number of files in this list is virtually unlimited, because the list gets scrollable when the list doesn't fit the screen anymore.
-To add a new file to the loadlist, press "new", enter the filename and press enter. Then, go back to the menu and choose "save current file". The filename will appear in the box, and press enter.
-To delete a file from the loadlist, press "delete", then press on a filename in the list. It will ask for confirmation. This wil NOT delete the file from the player, it will only remove the filename from the loadlist.
-When a file is autosaved (on exit), it will not be automatically added to the loadlist.

I'd like to hear what you think, feedback, suggestions, are welcome.
