Ratings and Reviews
Best telnet app and great developer
I was looking for a solution to connect our iPhones and iPads to our barcode server for our ERP system. We currently use very bulky and expensive Windows CE devices that use a telnet application to run a script so we can make inventory transactions and scan labels on the shop floor.
Anyway I tested multiple iOS telnet apps and none of them worked very well or at all. When I tested VTConsole it worked the best with the nicest interface by far. There were some bugs but the developer Frank, quickly worked with me in finding the bugs and releasing a new version. He was willing to FaceTime me all the way from Germany in order to find the bugs and get a perfectly functioning app.
I can now scan barcodes with my camera and see our inventory from my phone now.
This app is worth the money strictly for the support but also for the software. Thanks Frank!
Best Telnet/SSH App
Downloaded different Telnet/SSH App from the app store. This is is the best. Customizable keyboard made it really effective for our application. Very very useful.
