User reviews of SIMH Simulator for Android
It looks good and works well, but the app description implies that DEC VAX emulation is included in the Android version. It doesn't seem to be there. I'd give this 5 stars if the VAX was. truly supported.

Practical revival of cp/m Firstly to address the criticism of some of the other commentators regarding linked requirements that also need purchasing, such as the Better Terminal Emulator, yes, although this can be initially offputting the end result is definitely worth it. My principal interest was CP/M and I wasn't disappointed. I wanted to be able to do some minimal computing and this provided the idela platform. Some other emulators seem to be better geared to tablets as the font size on a phone makes them unworkable. Not so with this emulator, was able to get a good readable, workable screen format. I've got turbo pascal, mumath, dbase II and supercalc all working on my phone. I take note of one of the other reviewers complainign that BSD wouldn't load and I had the same problem but there are some unusual load steps for some of the images under SIMH so if relaly interested contacting the developer may yield a result,

works well I've used SIMH on other platforms and this is a good port to the android. The notes should mention that networking is not compiled in. I had trouble opening the developer's website to read the online help. A nice feature to add would be to allow the system disk files for simulated machines to reside on the external sd card. Some of the operating systems are quite large. Overall I am satisfied and enjoy using it.
