    Well, it IS a bit cumbersome but I use Xplora2's built-in text editor. I use Xplora anyways and since the text editor is built-in I never felt the need to use another one.

    I was looking around for something like this awhile back when I still had a PSP. Not so surprisingly, you'll be hard pressed to find an easy to use notepad of any sort for the PSP. If you intend on writing stories or something, I wouldn't suggest trying for this. The best you'll find is a couple with that same awkward keyboard set up, and one I found had the most awkward keyboard set up on the planet. I searched for a couple days though, and unless I failed miserably, there is nothing out there that utilizes a QWERTY keyboard.

    Well, seeing that the PSP has no touch screen, I can understand why the situation is like that. "Typing with arrows" is not the best possible scenario for a programmer.

    I forget which one I found, but one of them allows you to configure a connectable keyboard (I think it was for IR keyboards, provided those exist). Seems like a lot of trouble to type on the PSP though.

    Edit: Of course, if it was for IR, that would limit PSP models able to utilize that ability.

    Yeah, I've seen that one myself, but I don't own a Fattie so I didn't even bother mentioning it. ;P

    What I did see and found interesting were keyboards that used the PSP's UART port that's situated next to the headphone jack, none of these projects were fully finished though.
