A good start... Like others, I like the simplicity here. Two features would make this a standout app for me. First, the ability to increase font size. I like to occasionally work on my SIII. Second, the ability to support subfolders within the specified directory. I'm trying to use this with Scrivener's sync feature, which creates folders and this app does not recognize files that are not in the root directory. I'll keep this on my devices a bit longer in the hope that these two features will be added. Thank you.
So close... there are only a couple of things missing here. First, FONT SIZE! It isn't adjustable, on my nexus 7 this means that it's almost too small to read when it's sitting in its stand while I type on a bluetooth keyboard (pretty much my sole workflow here). Second, NIGHT MODE! It would be a lot more pleasing to my eye if I could make the background dark with light colored type. Third, TAB KEY! I'm writing a novel over here, man. I love being able to sync a .txt file between FocusWriter on my PC, but the inability to indent paragraphs is an additional pita when I go back to edit before submitting chapters to my editor. Ok, all that aside, the app is wonderful, it's exactly what it promises to be, zero distractions, flawless sync with dropbox, that's it. Despite the complaints I mentioned above (thus the missing star) I adore this app and suggest it to any writer/blogger/journalist who is looking for a simple text editor that would allow them to work on the go. Keep up the good work, devs, let me know on those bells and whistles I was asking for.
Rather excellent in my opinion! What I particularly love about this typing app is how responsive and quick it is to type up notes/documents. The simple colours aren't much of a bother to me; in fact it helps me concentrate with any vivid colours to throw me off (though I do love colours ^-^). However I have my criticisms. For instance, it requires Dropbox to proceed typing, which bothers me as it isn't compulsory other apps similar to this. Another gripe is when the cursor marking the location of where I'm going to type relocates itself to the beginning of the first paragraph whenever the screen reorientates itself. I apologize if I came off as rude; this is an awesome app in its own right and I only wish to help make it better. :)
Fantastic I am a snob when it comes to text editors. Developers tend to create bloated confusing software that either misses key 'functions' or overloads you with 'features' you dont practically use. This app is a little gem of good design, logical decision paths, with an unobtrusive and elegant interface. Props.
Simple and Elegant This is a simple and elegant app devoid of any distractions. While some may say it is a bit too austere it successfully delivers a pleasant writing experience. That said, my fundamental issue is the lack of sync to Google Drive. Mind you, I do use Dropbox however I am heavily invested in the Google ecosystem and would much prefer to have my files synced there.
Great but just one more feature Let us know when sync is happening, and an option to not sync on 3g mobile internet - data is expensive!
- added long press on action bar items
- loading indicator for text editor when files are loading
- Create new file automatically shows the Keyboard in the editor
- when opening the last file the cursor will be set to the end for editing
- added IAP to remove ads
- removed some unnecessary libs -> file size got smaller!
thanks to all the early users for their feedback!
