What I've Been Looking For I've gone through many text editing apps... Tried them all out, didn't like them; I'm really picky. I finally came across Amoeba--I think I've found my permanent text editing app.
Seems good A small text editor is nice. But this editor seems to suppress the built-in correction or prediction features of a keyboard. I have tried SwiftKey, Kii... This is a deal-breaker for me. I cannot rely on my spelling or typing ability.
This is an older app If it force closes install Text Warrior from Myopic Mobile. (You'll need a third party keyboard for Text Warrior If you are using Android 4.2 or higher.) Amoeba works in general on large devices only. I have one device with both editors on it. Five stars if it is fixed to run on smaller devices. I notice the app was last updated in 2012. Hope to see an update with bug fixes.
Best I've seen 3hrs and 22 text editors later; and I'm settling with Amoeba. Single celled brilliance. Scrolling, white on black text, copy paste. Large files. PERFECT APP!!!!
Nice idea but 3 big problems First, this app does not let me browse for files on the SD card that I put in my phone "sdcard1" -- it will only let me select files on my built-in storage "sdcard0". Second, I can't open .txt files through my built-in file manager on my Motorola Razr M phone, even when they are on "sdcard0". The file manager lets me choose to open them with Amoeba, but once the app is open, it says it can't find the file. Third, it is not compatible with the Swype keyboard, which is what I always use. Spaces are omitted, words get reordered...it's a train wreck. For what it's worth, I'll say that I do like the large fonts and black-on-white text.
Superior convenience Best plain text editor on play store. Why it has that low rating?
