I'm a developer and I wanted an app just to review code on my Android.

So this are the ideal keypoints, it doesn't need to have all of them:

  • tree based directory for easy file selection
  • code highlighting in VB, C# (other languages appreciated)
  • text line break so it would scroll only vertically and not horizontally (required)
  • customizable font size
  • little symbol at the line break to distinguish from a normal line
  • code to function jump, go to definition

Well, if this is asking too much is there any text viewer app with tree directory and line break?
