Yes it's vim but needs some improvements Since Android 5.0, I've noticed the overlaying app could use some changes. The only thing I'd like is options to change what commands are above the touch keyboard. Thats all. The only other improvement would be providing a default plugin manager, like Vundle.

I love you for this app. My favourite application on the go. It works just like I'd expect it to. However, I need to be able to manually set ˜ (aka $HOME) to /sdcard. Otherwise, I cannot edit my .vimrc.

Root mode crashes It's another phone, and another rom, and still the same bug. This app simply won't work as root.

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.
