Linux Quick Reference
By Concentric Sky
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Linux Quick Reference for the iPhone is a highly detailed guide to multiple distributions of Linux. With it, you can quickly find information on various package management systems, distro specific file locations, and common commands.
We've included a reference on Bash along with quick recipes for common tasks. We've also included a Core Command Reference with the full man pages for all common commands. The interface has been optimized for display on the iPhone and long pages can be read with ease.
This app is searchable, making it easy to find topics of interest. It's also fully native and requires no Internet connection. If you're looking for a single app for all your Linux reference needs, look no further.
This app includes:
* A cheat sheet for the Linux core file system
* Quick command recipes for common admin tasks
* A breakdown of various package management systems - with real life use cases
* A handy guide to where various distros keep important files
* A Bash reference guide that includes shortcuts and shell variables
* The Core Command Reference

For the $.99, this manual easily has enough information to fill up a $20 reference manual. Amazingly detailed descriptions of each function, how to use it and lists of commonly used variations. I'm very pleased with my purchase, and would definitely reccomend it. Especially for the ridiculously low price. (I just spent $15 on a reference manual that contained only half the information in this app)
Note to developers: It's just my opinion, but either drop or give the option to use the smooth scroll functionality (when clicking the + sign for information). It's nice, but I'm looking more for raw speed.
Helpful. You know, it's nice to have all the commands there. Many don't just know them all, so it's nice to have them here. Also, I find it's hard to know all the options for these commands, unless you have used the option before. All this is here, along with some great examples.
Minimal, needs more commands
Not that bad an app, but is very limited in scope. I find it very, very annoying to have to click the + button to expand each little section of a command man page, especially at the top. Add more commands, each with example(s), more useful info with quick access and I might give this app a few more stars.
