Post [APP] WordPad - Minimal text editor - BETA

I've spent days looking for a decent text editor and had no luck finding one. So I decided to work on my own. Looking for some feedback, I have a big list of features of my own to add too

Description:
A quick and easy to use text editor with minimal interface. A minimal interface gives you more space to view and edit your documents. Great for taking notes, todo lists, jot down lecture notes or editing text files.

Features include
- Optional automatic saving of documents
- Sharing in and out of the application
- Optional spell check support
- Minimal, clean interface
- Quick and easy to use
- Custom themes
- Support for large files (tested with 10 mb file)
- History of recent documents
- Multiple character set encoding options

I really like this app, but I have a few comments:

1. I believe you are missing some Intents, as I am unable to select this app to edit a text file.
2. When browsing, shouldn't you allow me to browse outside of the SD card? What about internal and external SD storage?

Is there any limit to file size? Most text editors I've tried have a very small limit to the size if the file.

Thanks.
