I want to have a place in my app where users can submit text. How would I set that up to where when the user submits text where can I make it go so that I can view it. And do I have to make an update for the app everytime I add new text files or is there another way

?

You want to store some data private to your own app ?
Well if this is the requirement you can use sqlite database or there is assets folder too.Create your own file and store in that folder.

Also confusing:

a) You say the "user submits text" and then "I can view it". So you personally want to view the text the user entered?

b) You say "I add new text files". Do you mean that you personally can also add new text and the user (all users of you app or just specific users?) should be able to view that text?

The kind of global sharing that you are implying would require a centralized server (perhaps in a cloud environment) to store text.
