Paid version mainly adds lotsa poweruser options, not essential, but looks very useful, right ;D

3) Allows user to specify buffer size
4) Allows custom fonts and background images
5) Allows user to customize 6 extra Themes in addition to the built-in 3 Themes.
6) Allows toggling of word wrap

If you are upgrading, you should save the files you are editing with NTW first.

Startup Crashes
If NTW crashes after you update your firmware to ICS, this is due to directory restructuring by ICS, thus clashing with NTW's own log data. Simply delete the /.NeedToWrite folder to fix this.
If you encounter any other startup crashes, either switch to a smaller(<1MB) image file for your background image, or install TTS for your phone. Its free on the Android market.

Text to speech for SVOX classic will only work if you enable both the SVOX Classic engine under your phone's TTS settings, as well as enable Language Override inside SVOX Classic TTS settings.
TTS with SVOX is buggy for IceCream Sandwich, users are advised to use Google's own built in TTS engine.

For more information, pls refer to Help in the menu.

Important! 2013-02-20
I just encountered this sudden bug on my SGS3. Cut and Copy buttons will crash my phone everytime in any version of NTW Lite or Pro.

So after some digging, I found that there is a bug in how certain phone models especially Samsung's implements the clipboard.

The temporary solution is either a factory reset, or to do this:
1. boot into recovery > advanced > wipe cache
2. reboot phone > ES Explorer (enable root mode)> delete /data/clipbord/*
3. reboot recovery again > advanced > fix permissions
4. reboot phone > it's fine again, but until Samsung fixes their firmware, the same problem will eventually recur for apps that implement their own cut/copy/paste buttons.


Don't hesitate to email me if you still have problems.
