    Is there really no text editor for the Pre? (No, not Memos.) That's hard to believe.

    If you don't mind "hacking" around a little, here's something to check out -

    GUI Text Editors - WebOS Internals

    FWIW, I haven't tried any of these yet. I'm using psMemo in Classic for now.

    HTH,

    I'm confused. The OP's history shows a long history of Palm devices none of which came with text editors. Any that exist for the Palm OS are 3rd party apps/self installable: just like those mentioned by JerryG.

    That's a little unfair. The OP would have been able to purchase or download for free a text editor for Palm OS without having to gain command line access. I have no doubt there will be such apps for the Pre very soon, but we haven't seen a WebOS app yet that does it (unless you want to count Memos and Evernote). Otherwise, you might as well count vi.

    Not to mention the fact that the Centro came with Docs2Go (and others on that list may have as well).

    Funny, I'm not a developer and I was looking for one last night.

    So there is sort of a text editor in that link above?

    I'll have to read more about it.

    There's a big, big difference between buying and learning pedit (my PalmOS editor of choice) and rooting my Pre. BTW, I'm not talking about a word processor or even vi (though I look forward to both). I'm just looking for something with at least as many features as Memo in PalmOS.

    Ah, a fellow user of Paul's Proud P-roducts!

    Nope, not yet... I'm still using several programs under Classic.

    Yes, Scratch is great, until we get something 'real'. The developer provides almost instant feedback and updates regularly to address any issues or just bring the app further. Also, a great bonus, it syncs with Google Docs! It's $5 and worth every penny.

    Hi,

    if You are talking about a text-editor for editing files on the file system, there is
    the filemanager Internalz with included editor.
    Internalz can be installed via preware or WebOSQuickinstall.

    If You are a vi fan, then you can intstall Terminal via preware or WebOSQuickinstall.

    If You are looking for a App for taking Notes, I recommend ClassicNote.

    Regards

    I also use the builtin editor of internalz. Like to use textfiles for notes, because sharing with other devices, my pc and wiki systems is so easy.
