Turbo Editor Supercharges Your Device’s File Editing Functionality

File editing has never been one of the strong suites of smartphones and tablets for a variety of reasons–screen size and a lack of a physical keyboard being two predominant issues. While one can correctly state that some devices can fit the bill and handle a file editor, such as the hybrid tablets with physical keyboards or any other tablet with a Bluetooth keyboard, there’s still the issue of the absence of a powerful text editor, similar to the much acclaimed Notepad++ that desktop operating systems enjoy. Or at least, this was an issue.

In a well executed encapsulation of features offered by desktop file editors, XDA Senior Member Vlad Mihalachi has published a powerful file editor tool titled Turbo Editor. As expected of any powerful file editor, Turbo Editor offers features such as syntax highlighting, line numbering, web viewing, and more. And to top off this strong array of features, it offers a clean Material Design-like interface which lends an appealing aura, usually lacking in editors.

Head on over to the Turbo Editor application thread to get started with supercharged file editing, or view the source code to see how it works.

While the official name for the latest iteration of Android has yet to be revealed, the code name used internally by Google has been seen to be Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop. The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
