Where did Android File Editor come from?

Specs: Linux
After I got this Android 4.4.2 tablet computer, I didn't find any app on
it for editing text, so I asked Google for suggestions and downloaded
and installed an app called "Flick Note". I did not make it the default
app for text files, so I got a list of three apps when I clicked on a file.
A few weeks later -- today -- I clicked on a .txt file and was given the
menu with a fourth option, at the top of the list: "File Editor". This app
appears to work, but it does not show up in Settings > Apps, in any
category -- Downloaded, Running, All, or Disabled. I see no way to
get a distinctive name for it that would enable me to find it with a
Google search. "Android file editor" didn't turn up an obvious hit.

Where did this app come from?

I tried to open a text file with "File Editor" and got a warning that
the file is very large. The warning included the name "Astro", so
I now know that the editor must be part of the Astro File Manager
that I installed a few days earlier.
