Yea. Great piece of software! Helps me open simple text files a lot easily. Few things I would have loved to have: 1) Automatically associate with .txt file, so that I can open text files directly from explorer. 2) Adjusting font-size/Zoom feature (imp. for mobile devices).

Basic functionality, yet a good & neat app. Just a note - I installed it on the internal storage of HTC diamond & I could not get to access file on the the main memory. The open dialog only showed the directories under the internal storage. Then I tried associating the file extension to this 'notepad' using Total Commander, but the app wont the file as a parameter & so opens up with the default blank 'untitled' page.

Sorry. I may be wrong about the part where I could not see files from main memory. I was trying to locate an .ini file under 'Application Data' directory using the "All Files" option & was still not seeing it - so I assumed it was checking just the "Application Data" directory in the main memory. Seems like it can open only txt, html, xml & log files.

Nice yeah! tnx 4 d new version, nw i cn open any file from Total Commander and GSFinder+!!! @naga.snr: This app seems to open all text files. Not just txt,log, xml. Just select \"all files\" from the dropdown list. also: \"Application Data\" and other system folders are not accessible from most ppc apps. Use the open-with thingy. The release 1.3 supports it. Get it from the Developer\'s website!

Most probably you lack the valid DOTNET Framework. It works on DOTNET 2.0 or 3.5. Otherwise, if you can mail me at [] the error \"Details\", I may check out whats the issue.

Notepad is the way to go... 1) It is light... unlike HEAVY NeboPad.. So light that the entire EXE is less than 50 kb. 2) Consumes 10% of RAM that NeboPad consumes uses less battery and processing power. 3) Resembles as close to Windows Desktop Notepad as possible. 4) NO hancy and Useless features like NeboPad 5) Runs as a standalone application, no installation. 6) Integrates with ALL major File Browsers like Total Commander, etc with \"Open With\" and \"Send To\" functions. 7) Easy ZOOM capability. 8) Way Way Way FASTER than NeboPaddy!!! and lastly: 9, 10) IT DOES NOT CRASH as often as NeboPad does (I have personally suferred and lost data using NeboPad... and that is why I am taling pais to let others know of it). Wishlist for author (if it doesn\'t slow the app): 1) We need Unicode Saving support... I can open and view Unicode file, but if I save it, it changes to ANSI. 2) Tabbed documents... please please!!!

This is an excellent choice for a default text editor, and finally one that doesn't require quotes around the parameter in the command line. I'm using it as the view-source editor in my browser. There is one thing I don't understand: Perhaps someone can explain why all the .NET CF based text editors I've tried, including this one, NeboPad and MobilePad, encode files in UTF-8 whenever they contain extended characters, such as French accents and German umlauts. Is it the developer's choice, or a restriction imposed by the .NET CF environment? All the editors I've tried that *don't* use .NET CF save their files in ANSI, which is the default on my device, and ANSI supports the extended characters, anyway.

I don\'t know why I check the system and find that the size of the .EXE file is shown to be 50.5k, MORE than 50kb. Perhaps there is something wrong or outdated about the download link or description of this app because I\'ve found that the supposed EXE ver.1.5 downloaded from the given link on this page is shown to be ver.1.6. It does not run as fast or smoothly as I have expected after viewing comments from previous users. B.t.w., the layout is not as shown in the pictures. \"HTCGuy @ February 7th 2009 12:28 pm \'...that the entire EXE is less than 50 kb. ...\' \"
