Fantastic app at fantastic value

This is definitely a first rate SSH app, and the 14 day free trial of premium features gives you a chance to really test drive it before committing. The premium upgrade is downright cheap, and a no brainer. I suggest everyone get it ASAP. 4.5 stars for the background connection issue I mention next.

My only issues so far: 1) It would be nice if the app at least notified you when it was about to close a connection while in the background. Termius does this on it’s free plan, and has a work around to keep connections open even longer on their much more expensive premium plan. 2) Mosh support would be nice. 3) I feel like the developer is unknown, and their website doesn’t even mention this app. Very strange considering how well executed this app seems.


Great app great price

All I wanted was to use ssh from my phone and the to other apps that came up wanted subscriptions from me. I'm happy to put a few dollars down for the hard working developers but for something I'm just going to use on occasion I can't justify getting a subscription. I'm going to pay the $4 simply because this was the only ssh app that came up and worked right out of the box without complicated annoying menus.

Only App I’ve ever bought on iphone

I use this app while i am home or out and about for practically everything: home servers, work servers, routers, switches anything and everything that can be accessed with this terminal. it’s convenient having a tool like this for the phone, it’s written very well, i’ve hardly ever had a problem with it. I’ve been using Shelly for I’d say almost a year and finally decide to buy it. It’s only $5, i think it was well worth every penny.
