Almost Great


I’m a network engineer that is working on switching entirely over to mobile devices for the management of my primarily cisco network. I had the previous version with the bugs for the iPad and it made it was a bit of a pain to get all my different devices added in. Now i find that since I’m going primarily mobile and apple products I want a solution to sync the network devices between my apple devices so I don’t have to program each instance of SecureCRT that I have. Most apps have a sync to iCloud option now. I would like to see this as addition to the next version.

A big fan of the Desktop version but ...


... while the desktop version is frequently updated with bug fixes and feature enhancements, this mobile platform is largely ignored by the developer. I have reported bugs directly to the developer which have yet to be addressed. Not surprising though; this app hasn't been updated since the fall of '16. At this point, I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

Really good...but one thing


On the PC version, I can select a firewall to tunnel through. If I import my sessions from my PC to my phone, those connections still work. From this version, I'd like to be able to add sessions with firewall support.

Also, I'd like to be able to set up logging to something like Dropbox.
