Awesome app by Ingelore
“I needed a ssh client while I was traveling. I only had my iPad with me and this app proved to be a helpful tool. It's well made and it works like a charm for me. I was surprised, that it didn't cost some bucks. I would have paid it happily. Great software takes time and passion and shouldn't be expected to be available at not cost.”

I can’t believe its not payware by FuzzballFury
“I needed an SSH client to talk to my Debian server while my laptop was down. Just from the screenshots, I automatically assumed I was getting an ad-ridden piece of trial software until I coughed up some money. I was absolutely shell-shocked when I realized it was free. It fact its so nice, I think I’m going to start using I regularly. Its clear a lot of effort went into this to make it look as excellent as it does.”

Great ssh client by Mr. Gesher
“As a sysadmin, I have high standards for an SSH client. This app is a great implementation, with lots of conveniences functions and a clean interface. Well done!”

Ratings and Reviews


Almost perfect

really nice start, but it’d be considerably more useable if the F-keys could be used with the “Globe” Fn key on the Apple external keyboard, or 3rd party external keyboards. As it is it’s hard to justify the expense.


Too expensive

Nice app, well put together but the pro version or using the function keys after the trial period is far too expensive. An app like this should be $9.99 but it seems the developer is using this app to generate leads for customer software opportunities.
