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.

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.

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.

Great ! /// 1._The TTS itf instead of separate start/stop buttons would better have a_single but face-changing start/stop button. /// 2._Folder sorting : e.g. Mnu_} Theme } Custom2 } ChangeTexture } Mnu } sort_options ! /// (X4701grey,_2014.05.20.Tue.12:44.) ///(LifeTab.1_/_2014.05.20.Tue.10:45.)

Cannot Select Text & NO help ANYWHERE. What a shame. I finally find an Android text editor that I can configure with glowing green text on a black background, with lots of features so I can work on fiction whereever I may be. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to select text and there is no help file (I can find), no manual, and no tips or tricks that I was able to find using a Google search. When I press the screen to begin selecting text (the usual Android convention, I believe) one of the configuration menus pops up. If the developer can assist me with an answer, I will revise my review and be happy to use the app. After all, they already have my dough. BTW I use a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Note pad device.
