Description

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.

proof-of-concept only

This was an impressive proof-of-concept for porting vim to the iPad. Applidium deserves full credit to get the ball started on this and making their efforts open source. However, the app was never designed to actually be usable (broken font rendering, no way to actually open/close files, no ios-specific usability enhancements, etc). Even the recent beta update left much to be desired. Fortunately, others have continued the development. Currently, the iVim app is the actually useable version of this. Applidium should probably remove this from the app store at this point and contribute to the continued development of iVim instead.

Vim, not sure the use case, but like it’s what it is.

Not sure the use case of this, but like it’s vim. I want to pull in some plugins and update my .vimrc, but I’m not sure if that’s possible, but at the same time, I’m just happy this exists.

Not very usable

I use vim on the desktop all the time, but this app is nowhere ready for prime time. You need access to special keys to be productive, including backslash (which is remapped to esc). Check out iVim instead—it has a special row.
