Longest Games? Also - Best Text Editor?

I'm going to Italy soon and was wondering which were the best longest games out there in the app store - regardless of price?

Also, I was going to do a diary sort of thing. I tried Docs2Go but that lagged heavily. Is there any good ones?

Thanks to anyone who helps out a newcomer to this amazing forum

No idea about the text editor question, but for the game, Battle for Wesnoth has over 200hours of gameplay.

How about Crimson Gem Saga then? It has also 40 hours of quality RPG gameplay.

Wesnoth is great. Alive 4 ever and hook champ have both also swallowed up a lot of my time.

I just use the stock notes app when I need to write stuff down on the go

War of Eustrath is a ~20-30 hours long SRPG.

Phoenix Wright is the third best game in the App Store, in my opinion. It's very long, and doesn't use up much battery life either. Now how long is it exactly? Well...

Each case is broken up into multiple phases of two types: Investigation and Court. Each phase takes around an hour to beat, depending on which it is. The first case only has a court phase (it's basically a tutorial). The second case contains two investigation phases and two court phases. The third case has three investigation phases and three court phases. The fourth has three investigation and four court phases, and the last one includes three investigation phases... and SEVEN court phases. Put together, that's almost 30 hours of gameplay.

btw I hated Battle for Wesnoth. Just FYI.
