Vi IMproved Touch
Vi IMproved Touch (Vim Touch) is an open source
Android port of Vim, an advanced text editor that seeks to provide the
power of the de-facto Unix editor 'Vi', with a more complete feature
set. Vim is often called
a "programmer's editor," and so useful for programming that many
consider it an entire IDE.
Vim Touch supports the full Vim syntax, together with finger
touch gestures to help make this editor more usable on touch screens.
