Project summary

 
 
 
 
 
 

Markor is a TextEditor for Android. Ver​sat​ility, inter​optab​ility, and light​weight​ness are the main properties of the project. Markor utilizes simple markup formats like Markdown and todo.txt for keeping notes and managing todo lists. Due its big versatility at working with text it can also be used for keeping bookmarks, copying to clipboard, fast opening a link from text and lots of more. Markor and its created files are interoptable with any other plaintext software on any platform. Markor is not only using open formats, it’s also free software, is openly developed and accepts community contributions.

💡 Note that Markor unlike office suites (like LibreOffice) or todo apps (like Wunderlist) doesn’t have any other layouts or modes than editing and viewing text and will never have. Markor shows how powerful and expressive simple text can be. All that can be seen and done in the app is editing, viewing, manipulating and converting plaintext!

Privacy

No personal data, like calendar or contacts information are requested or shared. Documents can be shared to other apps from inside the app by pressing the share button. Document will be stored locally in the device public documents folder or in a custom folder.
