I want to read something in txt format in Android. But I need toc. For toc is often can not be accurately identified, and as I'm familiar with regex, it's not hard for me to change txt into markdown. But often, Android reader app supports txt do not support markdown, so I want to know if some app supports reading markdown in Android, which need to identify markdwon toc accurately.

I know it's easy to change markdown into epub using pandoc or calibre, but they always adding something I do not need. For example, css file, id, class, cover. I just want to read pure txt with toc. So I think an app which can read markdown may be the best choice。

markdown is plain text. Plain text does not support toc.

What pandoc does (or can do) is generate a toc based on markdown header tags. The output file can be html, epub or any other thing.

Markor is a great tool for writting and preview markdown, but probably is not what you need.

I think, yes, for I do not need any writting.

Check out Epsilon Notes https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ekartoyev.enotes

It's an editor, but can also preview Markdown files and it has a file manager inside. It's what I use for writing Markdown on Android and I like it a lot. You can grab it from the Play Store and then later move the apk to another device, it doesn't need Google Play Services to work (you will lose Premium features if you bought them, though).
