About this app

A simple file editor with a basic set of functions:
- Create, modify and save files to the device’s memory and removable storage (txt, xml, html, css, svg files...)
- Editing files on cloud services (details on the website)
- Using different encodings
- Open multiple files
- Recent files list
- You can undo changes in the editing process
- Search for text in a file and replace
- You can forward the contents of the editor window (E-Mail, SMS, Messengers, etc.)
- In reading mode, open large files (1 gigabyte and more)
- Print file
- Highlight markup language syntax (*.html, *.xml, *.svg, *.fb2 ...)
- Voice typing
- Automatically detect file encoding (see Notes)

NOTES.
1) If you try to open a large file, there will be delays in opening and scrolling.
The optimal file size depends on the type of file (text or binary) and device performance.
2) Binary files can be displayed with loss of information (some bytes of the file cannot be converted to text).
3) Limitations of the free version: 33 encodings are available. During the editing process, you can undo the last 20 changes.

It's well written, but too limited. You must use the bundled fonts; system fonts aren't available. There's no dark theme, unless you pay. (Android OS lets you choose a system-wide dark theme now, which most apps simply honor.) Undo is limited to the last 10 words—again, unless you pay. Sorry, but there are too many good, free editors to have to pay for such basic features.

1) On Android 5 through 10, the number of fonts available is different. Therefore, I took those fonts that are available to everyone. 2) There is NO advertising in the FREE application. But it has some limitations (One theme. You can undo only the last 10 changes to the text) 3) Even with such restrictions, the application is functional.

Lies. Google tests all apps before putting them on its store! Look for problems in your phone!

The paid version (SimpleEditor) is a worthwhile upgrade. Both versions are straightforward to work with.
