For text files, what is wrong with Memo Pad, then? Right "out of the box". I know, it's not got enough features. None of it is just what you specifically want. Could be that there really isn't a big enough market for a text editor, until NOW, what with ability to store the files on the SD card, etc.
Yes, I think having the SD card available creates more potential uses for a decent text editor. Memo pad is okay. I've been using the Notes feature built into Unyverse, since they are instantly synced. But each note is limited to 4,000 characters.

As an example, I have a text file of references to articles, that I like to be able to refer to. There are hundreds of articles in it, some with short abstracts. With a decent text editor I could edit it, add entries and resort it, find and replace things. I don't need a word processor for this, but an editor with basic features such as replace and sort would be ideal.
