Has anyone tried SIMH Simulator for Android?

SIMH/Android simulates several historically significant computers such as the DEC PDP-1, PDP-8, PDP-10, PDP-11, VAX, AltairZ80, several IBM mainframes, and other minicomputers.

Sounded like fun, but wondering if it works well?

Thanks.

The free version (Z80-based systems only) worked for me. Haven't had a chance to play with it further though.

Thanks for the reply. My interest is in mainframe. Has anyone out there tried the paid app on the A5A?

I haven't, but remember that the Android Market lets you gives you a refund if you uninstall within 24 hours of purchase so I recommend giving it a try.

Let us know how it goes too.


Good luck!

Decided to look at Hercules on my netbook first under linux -- it's free, and I suspect I will be happier using on a device with a real keyboard.
