Just started testing it So far it's amazing. It works. I find it challenging because I'm used to using my fingers and the keystrokes are all memorized. It far exceeds the other Android text editors that I've used. It's nice that it is a recognized editor when you open up a text file. Thank you so much.

Nice touch port but ... Vim was designed to be used with terminals and emulators. It's nice to see an Android experience of it' but really I was just looking for a vim bin that was compatible with the android environment. Basically, this is cute but there are 1000s of better editors for Android devices. I was just looking for one to use in terminal sessions. Not an independent emulation of the experience. I have no idea what use this would be for other than to say "neato".
