What is a Hex Editor?

– A Hex editor is a specialized type of software that allows users to view and edit files that are stored in Hexadecimal format.

These files are commonly used for storing data in computer programs, which is why Hex editors are used for modifying game files, software, and other digital assets. Hex editors can be used to edit both text and binary data. They provide users with a visual interface that makes it easier to edit these types of files. While Hex editors are helpful for a variety of tasks, they’re primarily used by developers to modify game files.

How to Choose the Best Hex Editor for Android.

– The first thing you need to do when choosing a hex editor for Android is to consider your needs. What do you want to use the hex editor for? Are you looking for a simple tool to edit text files, or do you need something more powerful that can handle binary files?

– Or if you just need to edit text files, any hex editor will do. However, if you need to edit binary files, you’ll need a hex editor that supports this type of file. Not all hex editors support binary files, so be sure to check before you download anything.


Though the Hex editor application for android is not much functional. We can edit general and small files. If you haven’t a PC then these apps can help you a lot. I think you will love these apps also. So if you like or dislike these apps please leave a comment in the comment box.
