    Does anyone know of a text editor program for Android that has some kind of desktop for Windows, so that text files can be created/edited/deleted and synchronized in both devices?

    Thanks and regards,

    Have you tried the Google Docs app in conjunction with the browser-based version on the computer?

    Yeah, I have. However, I would prefer a simpler application!

    Plain text? Since the line endings are different in Android (Linux) and Windows, the same file can't be used on both, unless the app or program can understand the other system's file structure. I use Edit Plus on my PC to read and write files from or for my Android - it can handle Linux line endings.

    If you look at an Android text file in Notepad (on a Windows computer), you won't see any line breaks - it's one long line. Android doesn't use the line feed character at the end of a line, it uses the carriage return character. Windows uses carriage return-line feed. It's like they're talking different languages.

    Sorry, I've just realized I left this unanswered! So, with a year's delay, my humble apologies...
