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.

Can do the job, but plenty of room for improvements. Mainly with the actual interface. Improve copy/paste, CLI cursor navigation, perhaps even code snippets we can one-click run. I don't need a whole bunch of bells and whistles like other apps have, and they can't do what this can, but improving this would make it near top-tier for almost every use case.

It's an amazing terminal with lots of features, but it needs another way to open the session selector. Modern Pixel phones (and maybe others) use the swipe-from-the-edge gesture as the Back button. Sometimes I can get the session selector to open using two fingers, which Android send to ignore about half the time, but it's not reliable. It would work fine if opening it used a normal swipe-from-middle-to-edge gesture.
