Kindle Touch Text Editor

Hi all,

I've looked up a bit in the forum but I didn't find a good answer.

Is there a Text editor for the Kindle Touch?
I've already installed the terminal emulator, i'm a vim user actually: still i'd like to have a handy text editor to take some notes.

Best

if you have launcher then let us get started.
1. DOWNLOAD GUI LAUNCHER COLLECTION NOT GUI LAUNCHER FROM THIS LINK:http://http://ge.tt/api/1/files/9LOoBjL/0/blob?download
2.restart kindle from menu then settings then menu then restart
3.after restart go to menu then launcher then install collections or something like that
4.after installation it will restart framework and now you will have nano under apps in launcher menu!

Is there a way to make the nano font bigger or bolder?
And is there any way to make it respect the orientation? That way bigger input buttons would be cool, too.
Where can I find the saved text files when looking at my Kindle with USB connection? I can open them again in nano, but didn't find them anywhere using USB.

You mean you can get it to work? Because I can't.

Brilliant! And the font resizing works, too. Thanks. I'll go to the xterm thread to ask more.

Now there is a dedicated notepad for kindle touch with the kindle's native onscreen keyboard so it is more comfortable to use. It is named leaf pad
