App Does Not work on Galaxy Tab S3 7" Segfaults when you launch it. This is a shame, because I use emacs on my laptop. I hope this issue is resolved.

Just run it under Android Terminal or BetterTerminal Emulator The sole problem with this is the flaky terminal emulator it's bundled with. The emacs.bin binary from inside the installed app runs fine under better emulators if you put it in the relevant PATH and give it the right permissions; you can put an .emacs in wherever ~ is for that terminal emulator. The emacs.bin will look for its files in /sdcard/emacs. After you've let this app download all the emacs components you can then just uninstall it, and the emacs.bin binary will work just fine. Obviously you need root and a decent file explorer but if you're the sort of person who wants to run emacs on Android that's probably a given ...
