SimET is only 21KB in size, which probably makes it the most lightweight text editor available on the Android platform. But the tiny size is not the only highlight of SimET. In addition to being nimble and fast, the text editor sports a couple of handy features, such as the Undo/Redo combo and integration with Sedroid. The latter functionality allows you to send a text selection to the Sedroid app (provided it's installed on your android device) to perform complex text manipulations.

In addition to that, the Share command (press the Menu hardware button, and tap on Share) allows you to share text snippets with other apps and services. Once installed, the text editor registers in the Share menu, so you can send a text selection to it from any app. SimET doesn't have any fancy features like the ability to sync text files (although you can save them on a storage card) or support for rich text formatting. But if you are looking for a no-frills and lightning fast text editor, SimET fits the bill quite nicely.
