Orion works on Asus Transformer tablet

I've been looking for a handy way to edit code on the go and wondered a while ago if Orion plus my Asus Transformer Prime tablet would fit the bill or not.

I originally tried it several months ago using both the built-in Android browser and the Chrome beta for Android. At the time, neither worked in any usable form at all.

However, today I tried again, and I'm happy to report that using the latest Chrome Beta on the tablet, it works fine–with good performance to boot.

Congrats to the Orion team!

Wish list

Now for what I really want:

  • An Orion-based hosted service
  • With Play Framework installed/integrated
  • And Scala/Java Development Tools integrated

Not this year, probably, but… ;)
