Good work with the integration of the swipe to add notepad or tag. Works great 
so far.

Is there a way to integrate a blue button for an easy access-shortcut to a 
category within the notepad similar to the red button that now links to the 
menue? Maybe an interesting floating, moveable one?

When I study kanji from within a specific category of notepad I often have to 
search for random kanji and therefore have to leave the notepad's category. 
After having searched for the random kanji, only through luck and repeated 
"back"-button presses I maybe am lucky to get to the point where I left off my 
studies in that notepad category.
Through the implementation of a shortcut I could reach that category without 
resorting to luck of back button use.

At the moment I have to press the red button for menue, press notepad, scroll 
some 20 categories to reach my category, then scroll some 80 kanji down to get 
to the point where I left off.

I don't know if that is possible, but the shortcut should save the last 
position of a specifc category. The user can setup and point to the individual 
name of the notepad's category in which this should work.
Or at least get me back to that category. (;

Yeah, I can imagine this is quite pain in the ass :) perhaps it would be 
helpful if the notepad activity would remember its state - that is, each time 
you navigate to the Notepad activity (via the navigator menu), the activity 
will be opened in exactly the same state as it was before. What do you think?

yeah, you can try that. I will test it and tell you how it is working out.

Yeah, as expected, Android is really stupid. SingleInstance and SingleTask 
launch mode do not help as expected - upon closing by back button, the Notepad 
activity views state is lost. So either I will try to use the view state 
preserving facility of Android and risk myriad of related Android bugs, or I 
will remember the state manually.
