Great app!! But it's apparently not working correctly on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A with 8'' screen I bought a few nights ago. Characters aren't appearing on the screen immediately after being pressed on the onscreen keyboard. But a sequence of characters appears after I press the spacebar. I looked online, and other people say they're having the same problem. When will this problem be fixed? I don't know if it's a problem with Termux, or the onscreen keyboard, or other part of the Samsung Galaxy, or some combination of those three, etc. But Termux seems to work fine on my larger Samsung Galaxy, and on my OnePlus 6t smart phone.

Probably the most useful app on my Android device! I can even run Jupyter notebooks using it with my phone as a server, which is fantastic. The inclusion of soft keys for things like the CTRL and ALT buttons in latest update is really helpful as I don't need to keep switching back and forth from Hacker's Keyboard. Great job and keep up the good work!

For what it sets out to do, this app is perfect. However, I do have one minor complaint that keeps it this app from being 5 stars and that is unless your phone keyboard supports it, there doesn't seem to be an obvious way to shift the cursor left or right. Only up and down which can be frustrating at times. Maybe sliding horizontally on the touch screen could shift the cursor left or right depending on the direction?
