qr code Text Edit is a simple notepad app for the Android OS written by Paul Mach. It opens, edits and saves text files on the SD card.

Current, Final, Version:
    1.5 released 2011-09-03

After almost 3 years I've decided to put this application to rest. Thank you for all the downloads. Source code is available on GitHub.

  • Open, edit and save text files
  • Saves state when switching to other apps
  • Detects external file changes
  • Includes a file browser to select files
  • List of recently opened files
  • Rename and delete files
  • Change font size and type
  • Pick your own font and background colors
  • Email file as text or attachment
Unfortunately, this app is not recommended for large files. This is a limitation of the text display mechanism in the Android OS.
