About this app

This is simple text editor that can help you with editing text files.

This editor mostly used by me for small text notes, write down ideas while I have a break.

Supports only plain text files at the moment.

The code is open so can review code, send pull requests, new features, translations and so on. https://github.com/maxistar/TextPad.

Any suggestions for this project are welcomed. Thank you!

While doing a save, it overwrote a media file with NO warning. It should give a warning, even on text files, but ESPECIALLY with non-txt file types! I was trying to select a media file to get the name (to add a "notes" suffix to), but when I tapped the file it just replaced it without warning! Luckily it was something I could just re-download, but I'm uninstalling this app - too dangerous!

Works fine as a basic text editor, although it disables my keyboard's predictive text function, along with other keyboard autocorrect features. Also, the app seems to lack a "Share" option, which would be nice to have, so that notes can be emailed, uploaded to Google Drive, etc.

What a delight! Have used this on 'droid phones for years. Simple, reliable, easy, straightforward. I'm gonna donate some more when i can. No ads, no B.S. Yes, somewhat limited functions. It's a * text editor *. It does what a TE is supposed to do. A nice bonus is it auto highlights (in green) all hyperlinks--provided you scraped from a page with supported formatting. I give this 5 of 5 stars.
