Very good telnet app for a tablet device

It does everything I need, but is difficult and confusing to use on a tablet device. A keyboard is necessary to get full use out of it.

Telnet is NOT SSH, but still a necessary evil in some areas

Works exactly as expected - MochaSoft is delivering quality applications at an excellent price. To get this functionality on any other phone/handheld we used to be held hostage to the one or two developers who could write for those platforms - I paid $99 bucks for an SSH client for the Blackberry - best of breed, did exactly what it should do, but on the PLATFORM it sucked. Yes, there was a free version, but it did not hold a candle to the paid app. And I only paid $6.x for this app that beats anything I used before.

YES, we need SSH and need it NOW, but until then I can use MochaVNC to VNC to my Linux desktop on a VPN, and use SSH from there to wherever I need to go.

Did not even try out the FREE version, bought the paid version right off, suggest all add it to their application list and wait patiently, it is only a matter of time before either MochaSoft produces SSH or some other vendor - I prefer MochaSoft simply because they have an excellent track record so far.

Now if they could produce a tethering app <BG>

Best of the telnet apps...

Sure its not SSH, but when you combine this app with the iPhone's native VPN support - you've got a secure useful command line solution. I paid $2 for that other "Telnet" telnet app last week - and I think that for 3 times the price, this version from Mocha is 10 times better! The interface is smooth, it supports zooming, and best of all, and it allows you to re-map the function keys! (The $2 one doesn’t even support functions navigation or interrupt keys). This application is going to make my life (and my job) a heck of a lot easier. Don’t grade it too harshly because its not SSH… this app delivers on everything it promises. Five Stars! Thanks Mocha! This thing is worth every penny!
