wait for next version vim touch is great, but version 2.7 r1 is broken on my phone. still broken when I upgraded to lollipop. It ignores my .vimrc setup file. it saves new files where I can't see them.

I can not type anything, neither can run any commands like h j k l or yy or p or x etc.. this happens when trying to edit file opened using left slider file browser. If I just start writing new file the above commands and typing works fine.

What the Internet is supposed to be. This implementation of vim is excellent and is a very generous effort by the developer. When I reported an issue with a fresh release it was fixed within hours. I have only praise for this effort.

Epic Text Editor Just one more thing, if it was compiled with python support would be even better. and another one more thing: the latest version failed on editing .vimrc, need to fix that.
