Vim is a text editor first released publicly in 1991. Based on the vi editor common to Unix-like systems, Vim is designed for use both from a command line interface and as a standalone application in a graphical user interface. Vim is free and open source software and is released under a license which includes some charityware clauses, encouraging users who enjoy the software to consider donating to children in Uganda.

Great but could be better

Please consider adding these features:

Open in. This way text files from other apps can be sent to Vim. Having a way to send those files to another app that supports the format would be great too.

An additional line of keys for the keyboard. Having Esc, Tab, and Control more easily available would help usability immensely.

Please correct font display. As it is, it is a bit hard to read.

No esc button

Unless I'm missing something this doesn't seem to be usable. There's no escape button on the virtual keyboard so I don't see a way to get back to command mode. Beyond that I'm not sure how practical vim would be on a touchscreen anyway, but I'd still appreciate having it around, if it was usable.

Where is control mode?

I tried various swipes but no control mode could be found. Surely it's there!? Ahhh the backslash key? Really? Should be a swipe!
