it does not allow you to simply write the search path, you need to browse to it, and i could not browse to the whole device including the external sd card.
I used the app to search for names in a directory with 20 text files (from 247KB up to 3927KB). The search uses regular expressions and ignores case. This app can really search for what I need to look for in the document. On my mobile phone (2 Cores 1.2GHz), the search process takes about 30 seconds, maybe up to 40 seconds to check the result for all the files. The same search process takes about 15 to 20 seconds On a tablet pc (4 Cores 1.3GHz). My default document viewer is having trouble opening these moderately big sized txt files but with aGrep, opening and viewing the text within the search results is amazingly fast. It is also easy to cancel the searching so you can quickly change the search parameters if you made a mistake on your input. (Doing all this search process on a mainstream desktop PC will display the results instantaneously) I don't know if it is about my Phone's processing power that the search result takes some time. From the apps that I have tried out so far, this is the only one that can do the task. Now, I'm just checking if there are other apps that can do it faster.
This application has a major problem This application has a major problem: it does not find the word you are searching for, if that word is in the file-name..!!! Example: suppose you have a folder containing hundreds of text files. you are searching for some word, say: xyz. If xyz is in the body of some file, it will be found and displayed correctly. But if xyz is in the file-name of that file, it will not be shown..!! I understand a search tool should find all occurrences of the target word, both in the file-body and in the file-name.. Please adjust and I'll give you five stars.. Thanks
Buggy Searching for some characters (such as \) causes the app to instantly crash. Little buggy, but appears to work OK.
Good Because it finds stuff :) ―― 1_Set a base path to start the search [+] (Necessary, long-press on the folder name (browse up […] to get to other Storage)), 2_Add file extensions to the list [+] (Necessary ( * here means NoExtension )(AnyExtension I can't figure...)), & 3_Check at least one item of both to use for a given search. ―― If you learn the most basic RegEx you'll be miles ahead. (Try e.*t after checking 'Regular Exp...') ―― A few Settings. If the screen labels get wacky, just exit & relaunch the app. Despite the minor flaws, I like the one-screen setup & go. [me:KitKat]
Very fast, very useful for me. I'm using a lot of large text files from different languages. This is very precious to me, thanx. Wish i can have more options for the display
