I am looking for a Markdown viewer for Android. It should:

run locally on Android- be a normal app, not a browser addon, webapp or anything else that requires usage of the browser.


  • simple and lightweight
  • open-source or premium
  • Viewer as in "view formatted content", Markdown as in CommonMark.
  • So it must be a "plain viewer" – and markdown editors are out of the equation? How do you define "lightweight"? From its description, Notes might fit the bill: only 200k …

  • Yes it should be plain viewer, the editor is optional May 15 '20 at 7:19
  • Optional means it would be acceptable – then the mentioned "Notes" app should be worth a look. As I've not used it myself, I can only argue by description & screenshots – so feel free to answer your own question if it fits. All the best!

I recommend JotterPad, it's a MarkDown editor but does viewing superbly. I love it's dark mode. I think it might work for you, give it a go.
