Default [APP][4.0+][ver.1.4.1] Coastline text editor


If you edit plain text files sometimes or just write notes and save them to your phone (tablet), take a look at Coastline text editor. It is lightweight, simple and minimalistic text editor for android. It supports basic text editing features:
  • Opening, editing and saving plain text documents
  • Changing font face and size
  • Changing line height
  • Autosave
  • Remeber last opened file
  • Sending text by email, sharing in social networks, transfering text to other apps.
  • Support both phones and tablets

There are some screenshots in attach.

The application is fast and clean (at least, we believe it is ). And we'll try to keep the editor as simple as possible.
Also, please, note that Coastline is not an office application or full featured note taking app.
Download it from Google Play Store: just search "coastline text editor" or "com.rumsunrise.coastline" in the Store.

Enjoy! Feel free to ask questions and give us any feedback

its a nice editor..
i like its lightweight & minimalistic design!

just a few suggestions..
- option to display line numbers
- option to word-wrap or not
- font sizes smaller than 16 (good for display on small mobile screens)
- undo/redo
- search within text

i consider the first 2 "should-have" features of all text editors..
for the others 3, "nice-to-have" features..
LG Nexus 5 (D821) : KitKat 4.4.4 (KTU84P) Rooted (by bigxie), ElementalX Kernel (by flar2), Xposed Framework (by rovo89, Tungstwenty)

LG Nexus 4 (E960) : KitKat 4.4.2 (KOT49H) Rooted
ASUS Nexus 7 (ME370T) : KitKat 4.4.4 (KTU84P) Rooted
Sony Xperia S (LT26i) : Jelly Bean 4.1.2 (6.2.B.1.96) Rooted, DooMKernel (by DooMLoRD)
Huawei IDEOS X5 (U8800H) : Aurora ICS 5.0u21 (by dzo)

iamelton, thanks! It is nice to know you like the app.
We plan to add undo/redo and search. As for other features - maybe, but i cannot promise. Initially we did not plan to implement them.
