Reviews From google play store

It's ludicrous just how good this is. Proper bash, GNU tools, Python, node, apt repo with heaps of tools. Very configurable and powerful once you get into it. You can even PRoot to run a full distro's other userspace. If you think something doesn't work or you can't do it, look at the wiki and do some research, you almost certainly can do what you want with a tiny bit of effort.

Excellent does what it says. But please make navigation easier! It's a nightmare

At least, it works and it's the best linux terminal app I've seen so far, but it's still lacking compared most full Linux distributions. The manpages come short, but you have the ability to emulate a root environment and ssh works. Other than a shortage of features and functionality, It's great for programming terminal applications and text editting. Might I reccomend a second app for graphical output and the ability to go splitscreen within the app.

Left-Right navigation arrows would be cool. Typing a entire sentence again because of one mistake is too painful.

As computers become phones..and then tablets..and now laptops again, just striped of resources, I finally realized: you have to interact in THE MOST DIRECT WAY POSSIBLE (at the COMMAND LINE LEVEL) or you're already letting something else dictate tons of important details. Termux IS the best way to the heart of an Android or ChromeOS machine. So youre empowered to pilot a device and get EXACTLY the effect oyu want to see. Thanks!

Words can't describe how happy this makes me. The most frustrating thing about mobile OSes is that they're so locked down. You can't even get the length of a block of text or see your files or check the time or edit text in a way that "they" don't want you to. But with Termux, you can drop into a Python shell, you can install what you want, you can use your phone like a personal computer because that's what it actually is. I hate the way consumer software is going but Termux gives me hope.

Great app. Has helped me for about a 6 months. it's responsive and the UI is really good for a touch screen terminal. There is one bug though that makes me give it 4 stars instead of 5. After I close it and open it again after a few hours, the numerical keyboard pops up instead of the standard qwerty keyboard. I have to exit the app and go to another app like Google Search to reset the keyboard to qwerty and come back. It would earn 5 stars if this big is fixed.

Terrible. There are no left and right arrows for navigation in text editors, making it hell to edit anything. Trying to program with this thing drove me nuts. The default default text editor is vim, so when I tried to commit my git changes, it opened vim (should have been nano). I couldn't figure out how to exit vim or save and exit, so I forced quit the app, and then when I switched the default editor to nano, I found out I can't commit my changes in git, because I already tried to commit w/vim

Bug in one program was fixed in less than 36 hours! Using mainly emacs, gcc, git, midnight commander, perl, python, tmux, ... Longtime Unix user and really love Termux! I am using much the programs shown above (and more). When tmux did not work anymore, I sent an email to the Termux developer, and he fixed it in less than 36 hours!

pretty good but would be great if there was a way to recover from package mishaps that rendered the app unusable (like a built-in recovery image ..., baring that an app level way to backup user files, again when tar, ls, cp no longer work)

This is an amazing Linux terminal that fits all my needs. I can install my favourite linux distros in a few commands and have all the programs I need without pulling my laptop out. The only thing is my phone doesn't allow bootloader unlocking so I can't root it which doesnt let me use a few programs but thats ok because im going to get a phone that allows rooting. I would highly recommend this to anyone that likes linux or uses penetration testing tools. Thank you Fredrik!

I always gut the error code: Termux was unable to install bootstrap packages. And then it says: Check your internet connection and try again. _________________________________ I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with my Internet connection. And I know the app has some issues. Please fix it.

Termux is is the best Linux on android. Those of us that use Linux only, have lamented the lack of standard Linux tools/apps and or normal Linux functionality that is not available or out right blocked on android (linux). Termux provides for the use of the most common open source Linux packages. Android forces users to use paid services, while Linux provides tools to build your own services at no cost. Termux gives back the ability to build your own services for back up or what not using Linux.

Well termux is the only viable, general purpose terminal emulator for android. It's pretty good though, it really rocks if it's combined with a nice mobile friendly shell with auto completion (like fish or zsh). Regardless, this is what I recommend to use if you want to : - use your written projects in your mobile phone - connect to other devices via ssh (or host an ssh server yourself) - execute fork bombs on other devices!! - and many more

This is a great app. It gives you a linux terminal where you can install tmux, vim, and all the other basic tools. No in-app purchases, adds, or other distractions. Thanks so much for writing and maintaining this.

There's something wrong with Termux app icon, it's so small. You sure you tested this icon with many device resolutions like xxhdpi, and lower OS versions like lollipop? I have 50++ apps in my phone (incl. those designed for latest OS), and this is the *only* tiny and weird app icon. (P.S the old version with separate mipmap icons is fine, then you changed it)

So i started up the app and it shows me an error "termux was unable to install the bootstrap packages, check your internet connection and try again" my internet connection is fine and i have even tried with a vpn but it doesn't work, some help would be nice.

Hi, thank you so much for this good software. Unfortunately, in Iran and in the last few weeks, due to the intensification of filtering, Thermox has been disrupted and is not performing well in Connecticut. Please solve this problem by applying new methods and updates

Love the app. Gives as lot of flexibility as a Linux user. Only bad thing is i can't install it on the SD card so it takes up a chunk of my internal memory. Add that and I'll give another star.

Best Linux terminal app for Android period. It has everything you need in a clean and minimalist fashion. In addition the wide range of extensions adds more value to the app ands its ecosystem. There are so many tiny but super useful timesaving features I just cant go threw right now!

Very simple and powerful terminal emulator. One critical thing that has to be added for it to be fully functional is left and right navigation arrows.

Totally awesome app, it brings a terminal and great programs like Clang, Vi, Git etc. to Android. It's also very user friendly, using the terminal is really smooth, differently than I expected.

My most used app on Android! Very useful, well implemented and stable. Being able to access the main filesystem is a huge plus as well - I use this functionality to do rsync backups.

I give 4 star to these because it is good app for run plpgsql code on Android. But 1 star less because when we have to use these app we should write comment every time. And some app will no responded.

wow super app i greatly appreciate creator of this app but he forgot to put man aka manual function correctly i mean there is no manual for cd , ls , some basic function and i was trying bash script and initially we need bash dir address so copied and opened the .sh file using nano tried to paste it it didn't work so fix these

Best terminal app. REALLY WISH they used native Android text features (swipe on space bar, touch to place cursor, etc). Couldn't we have a separate window for input that passes to the terminal and emulates terminal functions? Just a thought. ❤️

great app, would of given 5/5 but encountered that I couldn't move the cursor from side to side only up and down so was unable to fix code. Colored text was also missing.

As a nerd, I find this app to extremely comforting to have around. Supports adding new binaries with the familiar 'apt' tool.

The best terminal for android! It feels like something built-in terminal like in Linux, MacOS and Windows. It is very useful for developers like me who like modifying their Android devices :P

Great last update. You think it through thoroughly it seems. I'm using it almost every day. Thank you for everything and congratulations for such an awesome and free app! (and free of adds!)

For those conplaining about keyboard issuses download hackers keyboard its a perfect match termux is the best terminal on Android period ive used and tossed 30 plus and termux is always kepted i use it on a total of 8 devices from android 4.2 to Q beta and never once any issuses this app is only limited bye the user if something's not working your doing it wrong this is a must have app great job to the devs

Extremely useful. A refuge in the world of dumbed down smartphone apps and user interfaces. If you have a powerful computer in your pocket, you should be able to use it like one.

Incredible value here! Stable, flexible, just what's needed in many situations. Keep up the good work!

It is good no doubt... But there is no left and right arrows to navigate...

CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE "cat": library "libandroid-support.so" not found Aborted CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE "/data/data/com.termux/files/usr/bin/bash": library "libandroid-support.so" not found [Process completed (signal 6) - press Enter] I HAVE THIS PROBLEM . PLEASE HELP ME TO THIS PROBLEM

I've used this app as a playground to learn Linux commands and to do some basic programming. I've used android compilers and terminals before but Termux exceeds my expectation in every way!

New error when trying to update and upgrade. Please fix that. It said update and upgrade can't be done securely and that repository is not available

It should be 5 stars but the keyboard changes to numeric one and the letter keyboard couldn't be brought back.

This is closest to bare-metal best performing tiniest tidiest most efficient linux on android there is. Thank you for your excellent hard work, it is much appreciated esp. the termux-api.

I use Termux to run Emacs, subversion and ssh on my phone. It works very well. It is fast and doesn't use too many resources . Great stuff!

Best app ever developed for android ... I love this app if we can name this just an app ! Its a extraordinary environment for people who knows linux . I just love this great app .... Running perl and python and ruby scripts on your phone is amazing . The one thing that i couldn't do with termux was installing metasploit !

How to start termux with tabs and populate or run command? Kind of "Continue where you left off" feature in Google Chrome

Great app. I use it to connect to my server using ssh, and I can use nano to edit config files.

Best app But now Facebook hacking is not working, when i inter fb account it's go on check point please find any solution for it.

Some keyboards seem to be incompatible like swift key and the physical keyboard key combos don't work.

Easy to use and all package supporting

Awesome but install npm packages give an error and than I can't run them, please fix or is their a SIMPLE solution.

It is getting hang too much. I tried re-inatalling it but got no solution. No commands are working.

I personally love the app. The potential that it stretches to is just great. But it doesn't support graphical tools.

Termux is a complete and easy-to-use Linux terminal emulator for Android and Chromebooks that don't support Linux apps.

great application. i was able to use ffmpeg, imagemagick, apache, mariadb and lot more.

It would be perfect if only I could move the cursor around to edit instead of backspacing whole text. :(

The killer terminal app. As I am always on the run, it helps a lot do stuff and the best so far. Jim

A must have for devellopers. It helps a lot! Greate to get vim, tail -f, great remote access... Well just get your android more linux like!!! :)

unable to install bootstrap, and then app exited. I couldn't even run it for once.

I got 403 error on termux after i type with 'apt update'. Pls fix this immediately!

Its free,its work,its support multiple language and the community that use this app is relatively big.What can you ask for more

it does exactly as it says. it allows you access to a linux cmd line on android. and it does that well. you can get emacs and python running on this app.

along with easy menu (ESC, Tab CTRL, ALT etc) please add / also. This / is used frequently

I recommend this application to anyone who uses unix-like systems and wants a shell on their phone. The availability of an apt like package manager makes it complete.

Best linux command line on android. Good for those suffering from command line withdrawal. If you're greedy for more power and control, use this tool and use it wisely.

Great shell with loads of features and an easy to use enviroment.

Hello! Could you fix "weird icon" display when installed in Android Nougat and below? The icon pretty small and blurry. Thanks. Edit: Please fix it!

Nice app for developers but sometimes I cannot execute something cuz of permissions. Please fix.

BUG! Characters not being displayed while typing unless 'space' is pressed facing problem in redmi note 6 pro

Now I found the best Linux terminal app. User-friendly, with help hints, u can easily download commands and libraries that u need. Thumbs up!!!

Unbelievable. A real functioning Unix box on my phone with node and networking. Perfection.

Not working any command. cd ls dir help update etc not working and executing nothing. Previous app was really good.

Loved it, seriously satisfying for all languages like ruby, python,c,cpp,go,etc.

Command that i type is not visible until i press space. This makes working with terminal difficult.

Superb development and very useful app for all mobile linux users and application developers..

Excellent!!! Can do remote configuration of equipment router/switches from my tablet

Frustrating that it won't work on android 8 but apparently it does on 7 or 9

It is real and legit.good work done to the developer. I wish i could get your contact for help. Thank you

It is a really great app, just two things, I would love to know where are the files from my phone and it would be nice if there were a left and right arrow

The new icon is too small. Can you bring the old icon back? And the helper bar with the esc, tab, ctrl keys is useless if you use Hacker's keyboard. Can you make it optional?

The app is very good but a i can't update or upgrade my terminal i don't know why please fix it

Good app but if it's possible to add shift key to touch keyboard it will be better

Very nice command Linux app an very useful support in turmux app... large of use to function in very fast an security...small app in turmux...large work of turmux...😁😁😁

Happy with app untill I face issue which throws up at every update command libandroid-support:arch64

I have a galaxy note 8, and 'linux on dex' is not an option for me. This is the next best thing and worth the download!

Best app, hands down. I love you dev for bringing such an environment to my Android device

Please add support for scp! I want to transer file from my mobile to server which isn’t supported!

I can finally use my phone like the computer it is. Termux is not a perfect linux/pc replacement, but it makes my phone so much better I have to give it 5 stars.

Love it maybe add more command like end game so it closes instantly or make it like a real hacking app

Wow. This one has everything. I have completely switched from all other terminal applications to termux.

Best terminal for Android.You can use python,gcc,nodejs and many thing in your mobile phone.Very handy to code on the go.

When i upgrade or try to install somethings they say Error 403 Forbidden

Please update proot for Huawei mate 10 lit because tcsetattr(fd, when, mode) termios.error: (13, 'Permission denied') ... I am using Android 8... Please update it

No left and right buttons. And better use it via ssh app. Not enough packages.

Like it, I can practice while I go in the bus or metro.

Great app. Is there a way to increase the font size? Thanks.

fluent and efficient terminal on the go! quite satisfied.

Good app for understanding basics of linux terminal commands and transform your phone in a hacking tool to prank friends.

Great app for your Chromebook if it doesn't have Linux support yet.

Perfect until now Would be better with left and righr arrow keys

I get all the power of a Debian bash, including apt install. Replaces (for me) a lot of other applications.

Beautiful terminal. It works, what else is there to say?

please help how to fix 403 forbidden error in termux please help

timidity++ compiled just fine when using build instructions from wiki
