All good except the scroll Large texts need faster scroll speeds! Also left scroll bar, is not working. When you have a large document scrolling down takes a huge amount of time!

Stiv Ostenberg

So slow it is useless. Had a small text file downloaded off the web and I needed to strip some HTML crap off the bottom. I could not scroll to the end of the file without waiting 5 seconds after each swipe for it to respond. Then, it would not scroll a consistant amount, often only 2 or 3 lines. Ugh.

Terry Roose

geat job! guys. I would give you multiple more stars than that this app is awesome


It tells me not yet installed I want to play Mad Father the RPG horror game but when I do it says not yet installed. Also when I try to play The Witch's House

Brandon Sego

Very nice editor I seriously don't have any problems with this fully functional software. And would recommend it to you.

Maarten Deen

Lacks features No fixed with font, does not handle diacritics.

Peter Nový

Great Of course, we can ask for more, but works reliably and fast.

Joseph Salee

Useless to me Firstly, this app will not open saved documents, even those saved using the app itself was (fails with a java code error). Of what use is it if I can't open saved work? Secondly, the 'language' menu does not change with the selected language.

James Griffiths

This is it Was unable to open .txt files on my android but now I can. So happy?

amine brahimi

Good app keep up !!!

Shane Ellis

Yeah It's okay

Afzal Hossain

Very easy to use Very good and easy to use. Thanks to the developer.

Nilesh Sanyal

Awesome app

Jeevan Acharya

it's slow.

Ralph Riordan

NO MULTIVIEW Claims to support Samsung Mutiview. Does not show up on multiview. Tab S 8.4 KitKat 4.4.2

Brian Matthews

Bad text editor Required me to install another app just to save as a php file

Sirapa Maharjan

where the hell did the thing called word wrap get lost?


Better if support for Right to left languages

Hai Bison

I tapped an .apk URL in Chrome, this app tried to open it as text. Then it hung, and got force close.

Greg Bourdon

Cool app Still traversing through the app may rerate this app again

Mark Morati

Too ad-centered Essentially lost patience to evaluate

Joe Ginn

It's okay

Thomas Heward

This application continues to come up when I am doing URL searches on my Android & then it freezes the screen. Real pain App.

Jonathan Knox

Can't save files Good to see the developer responds to problems. Still getting POST_CONTENT intent error on attempt to save via browser, but can at least save when you select "Documents". Would be better if the "browse" function worked and you could also name the file before saving. It is a promising looking app, from a UI perspective, and I can see it only requires a little work to get these two issues sorted, at which point I can see it will be a good basis for a good app. Right now, I can't rate it as such, but please keep going, because I think you have something here!

Jani Saksa

Didn't try yet, however... I'd liike to answer to one question of it's this supposed be addon or application. I'd say both, I had installed two applications before I noticed them as extension menu of Computer as installed (before I had installed Computer), this I installed because I realized from the two above that it's standalone programs designed to also work with each - very much by UNIX philosophy, if author knew it or not. So it's kinda both.

Stuart Halliday

Broken Really, your app can't open a normal .eml email text file without crashing?

Ram prasad

Loved it Opens any file in text mode. I opened a .ram file using this and got the .rm link inside :-) . Thanks

Key Designs

Saves in emulated location Requires more installs to save elsewhere and THAT doesn't even work

Aleksandar Tatomirovic

I wanted a text editor, not ads. I had to go through two annoying full-screen ads before I was allowed to create a new file and type any text. Not cool. How about displaying an ad after I save a new file instead?

Mike Weir

Decent Very slow, couldn't search anything. But the UI is quite nice.

Kenneth Harris

Operations supervisor The Los Angeles childdence. guidance

Mr. J

Doesn't work Gives me some kind of java error when opening a file. Tried to open a plain .txt file.

Just Craig

Pop-up ads Too many adverts. Immediately removed.

Mel Andrews

No option for paid ad-free version Wtf? Removing.

Alvaro Oracle

Painfully slow Very, very slow, even opening small files

April Williamson

No word wrap Otherwise, it's great.

Johnny Ozelius

Simple, easy to learn and use. Perfect

Parsa Kamali

Very nice It's very very good app for write in the notebook

benigno sucgang

Good Application Very good application

Seramarie Rein

Worth the ads Works perfectly.

Alexander Kapshuna

Hangs as dead when I tried to open 600 KB text file.

Manicsoul Twisted

Overwhelming ads

Faraz Choudhry

Missing one basic feature... That is, either to work with other file manager apps to browse and save files like already so to open files, or have its own file manager to do both. I can work around that by letting it save to Documents when it in fact just saves on the SD root and then using my file manager app to move it where I want. If I try to browse within app it wants to install another app for this that I don't need. This'll just about do tho if I can't find a better app iA.

Chris Nash

No auto save It's ok, but I wrote a lot of information once, into a text file, then went to a different app for a while and when I came back all my text had been lost. Where's the auto save?

Frank Eriksson

The only thing that I can complain about is that I really can't find how to change the font! I really want to have a mono spaced font, I can change the size - but that's it!.. Am I blind or is it just missing? It's an advertised feature.

Yg Dread

Works good ! I used this app to make more pics for my follow train and it worked . By the way my follow train is #dreaddgaintrain try my train it works .

Steve Meiers

Strange - Breaks CM13 apps First thing it does is throw an ad, before I even get to try it, bad omen. Second thing is when I try to open a file, it crashes my CyanogenMod update manager, so just how far in my OS does this app dig? UNINSTALL.

Kevin McCarty

Decent design, serious rotate bug The app has a decent design, seems to handle large files well, and has good features. There's one pretty serious bug though. When you have two files open, and rotate your phone, both files get the text of the second file. This is especially dangerous because the file locations are still correct, so if you save and close, you overwrite your first file with the text of the second. Phone is a Droid 4, Android version 4.1.2

Michael T

Can't open any text files! "Open Files" presents no relevant local folders (e.g documents, downloads, etc.). Instead it shows my image gallery folders! Even uploading a file to Google Drive and opening it from there diesn't work. It just crashes. Uninstalling. My phone us a Samsung.

Richard Smith

Does exactly what I need. Could be a bit easier to save a file but the fact that I can compose, select all, copy and paste means a lot less bandwidth.

Wesley Fredrick

Does what I needed Needed a small simple text editor that would share with an FTP program to accomplish an upload. This app worked great for that.

Christine Dianne Francisco

I've been looking for this. The app size is small and it's too convenient to use. Thank you so much. ?

Jade Harvey

Eh It works good but when I wanted to print, I sent through email and it sucks and it didn't work and when I try to share it any other way it glitches out and doesn't work. Would have gotten 5 if it worked right.

Chris Bettis

Really Useful This app is a great tool and integrates really well with my existing setup that allows me to share the notes across devices of all types. With no public cloud. Great.

Angel Cake

Displays files like a basic txt program I thought that this would be a great way to read and edit my rtf files. Turns out that not only does it display my rtf files like an ordinary text program would (that is, with a ton of extra garbage text all over the place), but it has plenty of other limitations that you would expect out of a editing program. Very disappointed.

Robert Kaufman

Crash on file open Crashed when I tried to open a file from SD card. Also huge ads on first run, dear god

Chris Brown

Needs root access Good but would be better for me if it could edit root files.

kev email

This app lost all my works in the past week The file suddenly changed to empty content when i just saved it. How can i trust it any more !? (on Samsung Note4)

Jeremy Ng

Just love it! This is what exactly I need! Other text editor doesn't support other language but this do! Keep it up the developer group!

Libby-Jo Neal

1 prob: u should be able 2 save it 2 gallery and post it on apps, like I hav this game called QuizUp and I want 2 put up 1 of these but can't cuz it won't save to gallery!Plz fix this then I will giv u 5 stars!thx☺?????

Zac Tees

You can make mcpe mods with this:) This app is awesome you can even make modpe scripts with it:)

TLG Creations

Text editor I would like to see a select file, then DELETE button. Thank you

Tanuj Kumar

Nice Just ok. Can't open files saved in some areas, such as if I create a folder for all xml files, it would not find it

A Google User

Good Nice text editor. I wish it would remember the font size chosen though so I didn't have to keep setting it each time I open it.

Randy Baggett

Bad Wouldn't open my txt files when installed in the system memory of my LG L38C running v.

Fringe Wizard

Text Editor with Ads I just want a simple text editor program without ads. I don't know why Samsung Galaxy Tab S doesn't already come with a text editor app by default (at least to my knowledge) that is lag-free and so on so stupid. Anyways, don't download this, unless you want to be forced to see ads from time-to-time.


Love it Helps me keep track of my pokemon BackStories and there characters


Simple Does what I want it to, loads fast, easy to use. Had previously tried Word(too slow/often made me sign in to edit) and Quick Paste Edit Pad (simple and quick enough, but no save function) and this is the best one hands down.

Andrew Holmes

OK, but... Was okay in the old version, but I can't have white text on black any more. Two thumbs down!

Dustin Detton

It works well For my purposes (hobby writing), it has everything I need. If it were possible, the ability to use fonts would be a good addition, as well as being able to apply changes like font size and color only to specified sections.

jignesh modi

It can not open .txt files.. Why? It can not identify .txt files.. Why?

Justin Coolidge

Cannot save file Ads pop up everywhere and you CANNOT save your document unless you download another file manager app. Useless. Uninstalling

Teiran Dragon

While I love this app, (it lets me copy paste properly, it has an undo function, awesome) there two things I really wish it did. I really wish it would keep a file open if i swap to another app. And I wish it would just let me buy the freaking apps to remove the ads!

Om Prakash

V. V. V. V. V. V. V. V. poor app that app is worst in universe I couldn't open any text file in this worst app. shame on this app

Ellison Pratt

Doesn't work Crashes when opening .doc files. And won't open .txt files.

Samuel Latture

Excellent Editor!!! This text editor is extremely easy to learn and use. Allows advanced text editing features, font enlargement, font reduction, and many other editing features. Especially important is exporting and importing text directly to other apps.

brando amuro

Very useful! i can now edit gameshark codes

Rangarajan Sivaraman

Works fine, 1 request How to set encoding to Unicode, I am not able to save Tamil texts.

Kim Anderson

help i pull files to edit, but theyre in computer code, how can i get the document normal, instead of jibberish????

Dani Muresan

Font buttons don't work. I tried all of the: bold, italic, underline, etc. But they are not doing anything, just show the text of "enabled".

ghislain mike

The app works perfectly, I use it regularly. But it would be even better if you could add ; spell check (for english spellings) and word count . I would really like to see these 2 features on the next update (or version).

Havno Naim

Features don't work After a lengthy search, this app seemed to be just what I needed for word processing. I especially wanted text enhancements like underline, bold or italic and *different Fonts. However, just as another reviewer noted, *the fonts do not work*. Also TE is glitchy as to overwriting & saving files. Just don't use it for any really crucial documents (or adopt the habit of frequent saves.)

Shazikiss Vahed

Text editor It is a handy app for immediate text editing and corrections

Paul Ryan

A text editor without the ability to paste text... What a joke.

manikanta chellaboina

Super I like this so much anything can change

Abigail Peters

Crap I'm starting to regret downloading this app cause the writing is rubbish and the font buttons don't even bother working at all.

de lambert

djuth? love it has to have one of these?

Noah Nelson

Very nice Does everything that a good text editor should do.

JulieTMWendele Author-Artist-Singer-Actress

I Love Text Editor by Byte Mobile Thank you for such a simple to use yet in depth app for we published authors, and offering new writers a great application for honing their skills. Author ~ Julie™Wendele - July 5, 2016

Havno Naim

Big improvement w/update For straightforward word processing, you'll have difficulty finding better than TE. And now, the fonts & text enhancements like underline, bold or italic are fully functional. However, it's still glitchy when switching between documents or overwriting and I've lost data. So be cautious when working on crucial documents & adopt the habit of frequent saves.

joseph devers

Perfect for all my text needs! And after i rooted i made it a system apk.

Laurie Daykin

Great little app I've looked for a really user friendly app for ages.tried most of them. Finally settled on this. The ui is easy.The doc can be saved in html or txt. Pleasure to use.

Essam Gaber Ali

Audie Geronimo

All I what in a text editor. Perfect This ap has all I was looking for in a simple straightforward text editor. No more no less. Thank you. This has search, replace, etc and it does them in an easy to use interface.

Nicholas Hite

Priyanka Duggal


Stephen Ross

Great options on this light but very effective app

Ali Mcf

Tried on a samsung 10" tablet Wow wow wow. Top app for text. Works XTRA well with italics, colors, & all

Sorin Trifan

Can be ok It is ok at editing the text. But when you press done it will save the text as plain text even if it was saved as html previously. And if you press save as.. it does not want to overwrite old version. Unusable.

Keith Guganda

Crashes Stops or crashes everytime I open a file. I would rate the editing, but I've never even loaded a file successfully. Wish I wouldn't have wasted my time

Alex Puddephatt

Annoying ads recently stop me viewing my files. Uninstall Used to be an in app. Editing a full text doc is always going to be tricky verging on impossible on a smart phone when you've grown up using full word processing packages but this didn't do bad. Recent ads that occur I've front of the document and then if you switch to flight mode to avoid the ads causes white screen. Nope you've lost it. Uninstalled.

BlondMuscle B.

This app SUX! It's cumbersome and just plain stupid. Such as not being able to delete items that you created since the app doesn't like to overwrite existing files and therefore created generational files. SUX

Douglas Snauffer

Disappointed This is actually a very nice writers app. Unfortunately, the user agreement states very clearly that everything you write will be sent to the developers. I'm certainly not going to agree to something like that.

Bobby Rankin

Text Editor I don't know how it works on other phones but it Is Awesome on my LG K7 on my Blu Dash X LTE and on my Samsung Galaxy J7. Is Awesome love this app gave it Five Star rating because of the way it works and it's Simplicity but yet with a font base that is Awesome. I use multiple devices and multiple apps and have more than one text editor. Big thumb up to the Developers on a great job.

Michael Greer

Clean, tight & easy to use. This does everything you'd want a nice clean text editor to do. Any way I can pay you for this and stop the ads? Even so, it's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

Matt Suppelsa

Nice editor but full video ads ruin it I like this text editor and I'm willing to pay to get rid of ads - until this is an option I'm h installing and finding one without debilitating and annoying ads

Richard Piesse

Text Editor Everything you're looking for in a document editing app. Great toolkit with the capacity to share finished work online with email or Facebook. As good as it gets!

Civil Savant

Ads, no encoding options App gives you ads when opened. Also it has no feature for .txt platform encoding. Otherwise, it let's you create, edit and save files as either .txt or .html format.

Sheryl manz

Sheryl I love this app its very cool alot better than regular microsoft. It works really great . Love it. Great job with this app

Ingar Tødenes

Crap Can't create or edit a single file
