Advanced text and code editor app for Windows

A Powerful Free Editor App

Code Writer is a free text and code editor app for the Windows platform, downloadable from the Windows Store, and fully supported on ARM, x86, and x64 devices.

We've built it from the ground up to be fast, fluid, and powerful. Active syntax highlighting updates as you edit files, with over 20 file types supported. Color is used pervasively throughout the app to create a bond between you and various file types.

Multiple documents may be opened at a time. Use an intuitive tabbed document interface from a slide-down app bar to switch between documents. Browse to open any accessible document, or reopen recently-opened documents with a tap.
