About this app

[SD CARD IS NOT SUPPORTED FOR WRITE ACCESS]
[LARGE FILES MAY NOT OPEN PROPERLY]
Before you continue, please do not rate 1★ or 2★ simply for things already disclaimed above.

[NOTE]
Before you leave bad ratings, please make sure you write down the problems you experienced in the app so that I know what to fix, instead of just a short meaningless review (something like "awful", "it does not work", etc.). Such review does not help you, does not help me, does not help anyone.

Perfect so far. I was looking for a simple text editor, no bells or whistles, that I could paste into, that would generate a text file I could transfer to my PC. This one fills the bill nicely. Plus I can browse my filesystem with it. Very simple, doesnt make my phone freeze. Only annoyance right now is it nags me for a rating when I've already given one. What's up with all the apps that do that now? I don't live in the Google play store, I've got other things to do.

Hi, thank you very much for your review. I'm glad that the app fits your needs. I'm very sorry for the rating issue. I have disabled the rating reminder in the upcoming release v1.1.3.

UPDATE 3/7/2019 THANK YOU! Your latest update lets people sort the way they want, not just by date. I highly recomnend your app as a basic text editor. Amazing and fast action! 100% *** This app does exactly what it says, and very well! I don't want or need advanced features, Just Notepad. Thank you! My use case is looking at log files sent from a Linux server. Is it possible to sort by descending date so the latest entry is always at the top? Thank you again for a 99.5% solution. Dennis

Hi, Dennis. Thanks very much for your review! I'm glad the app works for you. 😁 UPDATE: Your requested sorting feature has been implemented and rolled out in version 1.0.4. Each folder can have its own sorting mode. I hope you find them useful. If you have any more suggestions in the future, please feel free to inform me. Regards

does what it's supposed too. only problem I've seen so far is that if you switch to another app, or home screen even, the contents of the notepad is blank and yo have to go to the file system again to open the saved one. I haven't checked if it does this or not. but when it does that, with the fact that the save button is right beside the menu button, one may accidentally hit the save button and save over that doc with a blank.
