    This app instilled in me the value and goodness of interactive activity. With a matching patience, I will realise the high quality rewards that I am expecting.

  2. guest-avatar

    Doesn't copy / paste, SuperUser functions don't work. Fine size is too big for what it is and what is supposed to do.

  3. guest-avatar

    Great, simple terminal for what I want it for. Easy shell access to work with my permissions, mounting, and selinux. Other terms may have more features, but they take more memory, and I've never needed more than one kind of terminal. Thanks, Dev(s)

  4. guest-avatar

    Keeps requesting access to files, but works properly when that access is denied. Somewhat worrying.

  5. guest-avatar

    It is broken. No need to trust me, try yourself. After the command "type xxx" for any other command you will get "cd: too many arguments" error message.

  6. guest-avatar

    Too simple for a terminal. If there weren't good free alternatives OK, but there are, with some basic essential features.

  7. guest-avatar

    Ads! This app does nothing that would've required a lot of work to make, yet has ads.. greedy

  8. guest-avatar

    I triggered top command from the shell. It is giving the result but I am not able to stop the command. Please let me know how can I stop the running command?

  57. guest-avatar

    To belatedly answer the question below, press the Ctrl key and the c key. For more command line help, download any of the Linux tutorials, as Android has at its heart the Linux kernel.

  58. guest-avatar

    Good but it has some downides, it is not looking very good on small screens... Hints: make that when you use the 'su' command, it displays a '#' instead of an '$' (like it normally should be)

  59. guest-avatar

    I'm on an Android kitkat netbook, not tablet. So I've got a physical keyboard not a touch screen. I can type commands but [Enter] key does nothing.

  60. guest-avatar

    You can't see output of commands after 3, 4 attempts. Useless app

  62. guest-avatar

    How in the hell will anybody execute any command if enter key isnt acceptable...

  63. guest-avatar

    Please provide keys to stop a running command. Also, at times, it does not accept the enter key.

  64. guest-avatar

    Autocorrect isn't disabled when typing commands and the app has ads.

  65. guest-avatar

  66. guest-avatar

    Freezes up if you don't have active Internet connection
