TextWarrior


Note: For those who updated early to version 0.93, the crash on startup has now been fixed.


TextWarrior is a text editor that rethinks how editing can be done on a touch screen. Annoyed at accidentally moving the cursor or bringing up the virtual keyboard when scrolling? Tired of doing finger gymnastics to position the cursor? TextWarrior lets you customize text editing to the way you want it to be and more.


Besides all the usual features of text editors, TextWarrior offers 5(!) unique ways to fine-tune the cursor position. Especially helpful for those who are using devices without a hardware keyboard or stylus. While we are at it, why not add syntax highlighting for programming languages and a slideable clipboard. Best of all, TextWarrior is free and open-source! No internet permissions required for pesky ads.

Selected features:
* The only Android text editor that supports direct touch and drag selection of text and other custom behaviors
* 5 cursor navigation methods to choose from
* Word wrap
* In-place search and replace. Case-sensitive and match whole word options
* Slideable clipboard
* Syntax highlighting for C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Objective-C, PHP, Python and Ruby
* Word and character count
* Long press of a hardware keyboard key can capitalize a letter
* Auto-indent
* Visible whitespace
* Configurable tab width, text size and font
* Recent file history
* Undo/redo
* Supports ASCII, Latin-1, UTF-8 and UTF-16 encodings
* Supports different line terminator styles
* Works with all input devices: touch screens, keyboards, trackpads, styli...


TextWarrior is a community-driven project. Usability is at the forefront and if you have any suggestions or feedback to making text editing easier, drop us an email. Android Market comments cannot be replied to.

Compatibility note: If the Shift and Alt keys do not seem to work on your physical keyboard, try holding the keys down as you would on a regular computer keyboard.

Wish zoom % had more options Zoom % jumps from 200 to 400. Should have more options in between. 250, 300, 350! Thanks for helping.

Not As Good Used to be great but will no longer paste text from other applications. Time to find a better text editor.

A Most excellent Text Editor Text Warrior is a useful text editor. For Android 4.2 and higher it needs a third party keyboard. Hackers keyboard (free) or Smart keyboard work well. Text Warrior has powerful clipboarding. features as well as built-in help.

Unworkable on Motorola droid maxx Backspace key types previous word repeatedly, deletes some characters, then types them in again. Double tap on a word only selects one character, not the whole word. Unusable, otherwise it looks pretty cool.

Outdated and buggy within 1st minute What is this nonsense? I can't believe people hail this monstrosity as "the best editor". It looks ugly, has a serious and obvious backspacing bug, and hasn't been updated in more than 2 years. And I've only used it for about 2 minutes :/
