See what is going on with your Raspberry Pi. CPU, Memory, Temperature, Disk Usage, and Clock activity are shown in beautiful and easily understandable graphs.

Run commands on your Pi with a single tap. Want to have your own commands? No problem. SimplePi lets you add as many commands as you wish.
Additionally, you can manage your commands in groups.

Access your Pi from a shell terminal with colored output and hardware keyboard support. The on-screen keyboard comes with fast access to commonly used special keys like ctrl and arrow keys.

View and export command results and logs automatically. The results history allows you to view the results of previous commands

Detailed Stats for CPU and Memory give you an insight on which processes are running, how much memory is active, and much more.

Browse Files and Folders in a file browser-like experience.
View and export files of various formats.

SimplePi can manage multiple Raspberry Pi. Configure each Raspberry Pi and connect to them simultaneously.

Public Key authentication gives you the flexibility to authenticate in your preferred way.
Key files can be imported via iTunes or from other apps.

* Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian)

* OpenElec
* Xbian
* Pidora

Clean UI & # 1 in the App Store

I must say this app is a must have if you own a Raspberry Pi. Very intuitive and user friendly interface that gives you what you need for your Pi. For superusers this app is a playground, download now you won’t regret. 4.99 a year Let’s support the developer and this phenomenal app.

Works on LibreELEC

CPU and Disk are now working with the latest version. Now I can use this app to monitor my pi and issue reboot commands.

Less tracking, more securing our keys please

Okay, I see you hacked together a few google trackers into the app to get every click and launch of your app. You will certainly have a lot of data to analyse and resell if you are GDPR compliant. However, in this days, I don't think this would come as a must for a Linux user.
But storing ssh private keys in an unencrypted database? Please! There are specific areas iOS offers you to store this securely, like the keychain?

Developer Response ,

The app uses Analytics for the sole purpose to get crash logs or when something else goes wrong in the app. No data is resold and there's no intereset whatsoever in the future of doing that. You can always turn off analytics in the App's settings.

The app uses Data Protection to protect the App's data on device. That container is only accessible when the app is open. This provides the same level of security as the keychain.
