This one's the best text editor in the Play Store. Open-source, fast, free, and without ads! The list of recently opened files is a bonus. It allows you to save files on the SD card, which is awesome. You need to tweak a few settings to make it work well, such as enabling the file browser (storage framework). Also, swiping from the left brings up the menu, while swiping from the right shows the settings - this should be mentioned in a tutorial. Once you've set it up the way you want, this app rocks.
License gone I bought this as at the time it was the best editor, when I was reinstalling my phone I couldn't get back the full version that I had bought, so I was tricked into making a donation for the full version which didn't work. So basically I have paid for this app twice and I won't be giving you anymore money, if you want me to assess the app as a proficient web dev then give me my license back and I will write another review. I am quite sure it was the devs who deleted my licence between versions and not my er
It could be good. It can even handle external storage properly, unlike most editors out there. Unfortunately, it is plagued by annoying bugs that make it almost completely unusable. The application interferes very badly with the keyboard, which makes typing symbols challenging. Also, the keyboard won't show up at all in landscape orientation. File handling needs a rethought as creating new files, for example, is rather inconvenient. Code completion I can live with in the free version, but the lack of auto-indent is a pain. If these problems were fixed, I'd probably stay with it, but in the current situation - without updates - I'm looking for a substitute that works correctly and can save to the external storage.
Good, unless you have a bluetooth keyboard Works very well and has syntax highlighting with a variety of languages (but doesn't seem to understand some ruby constructs). However, this app ignores anything involving a shift key on my bluetooth keyboard. Other installed apps to register these key combinations. If you only plan to use the on-screen keyboard, this app is awesome. Otherwise, you can do better than an app that will not allow capital letters from your main keyboard.
Hey, liked the design... And thats it. The keyboard bug is a big issue (can't access the symbols easily). Also if you resize the font then the line numbers' size don't adjust accordingly. Saving the documents is a pain as either you have to remember the paths or will have to transfer it from the one only folder you can save it to (you have the right to at least select the for though). Hopefully we get an update to resolve these issues!
