Default I need a free rich text editor to save url links

Hello,

my first post on Android Applications. I've just bought a Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 (gingerbread) and I need a simple editor that allows me to paste url links and automatically convert them in clickable hyperlinks. These are not meant to be bookmarks but a long collection of articles.

On the PC I use Google Docs for this purpose but the mobile version is read-only and the Google Docs (or Google Drive) app which I've installed from the Play Store doesn't automatically create links and it's not possible to manually add hyperlinks.

If this has been discussed before please provide link.

Thanks. Ottavio

I did misread your post. I'm not sure if it will open rtf format files, I haven't any to try.

Sorry.

I've tried that and believe me or not it doesn't convert url to hyperlinks.

I'm at loss.

I'm not sure how important opening .rtf files is to you but Evernotes (a note taking app) allows Rich Text formatting, including converting web addresses to hyperlinks. I think the Windows version supports converting .rtf files into notes though I'm not sure and I can't check because I'm on a Linux machine at the moement. But couldn't you just switch to using Evernotes instead of .rtf files? I think it has the same capabilities (and more) and it will automatically sync with all of your devices.

I liked your idea of a simple, editable list of URLs ... so I searched a little and found and installed Bookmark Folder

Well, it is a Bookmark manager with all these features that a bookmark manager should have

... and it has this editable list with free sorting ability.
And the app has the option "Create a link", that pops up a text box where you can paste an URL link.
