About this app

Before you continue, please do not rate 1★ or 2★ simply for things already disclaimed above.

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.

I've been using this app for years now and I love it, it really deserves better ratings. It's just a basic and easy to use text editor, perfect for editing simple .txt documents on the go. I like that it doesn't have a bunch of unneeded permissions or take up much storage room like some other apps that have extra unneeded features. Works great for me, I use it frequently.
