  1. guest-avatar

    Very useful things for beginners and people who want to write some code with their phone but it has a few limitation and bugs

  2. guest-avatar

    Edit: Input issues I complained about in previous/original edit all seem to be due to problems with my phone's default keyboard app. Installing "Gboard" (Google Keyboard) seems to solve these issues. "pkg install python" fails to complete install around 80%. Not sure where the problem lies, but I would like to be able to call Python from the command line.

  3. guest-avatar

    You have a serious bug, characters don't appear while typing and only after pressing space.. FIX URGENTLY

  4. guest-avatar

    Great app!! But it's apparently not working correctly on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A with 8'' screen I bought a few nights ago. Characters aren't appearing on the screen immediately after being pressed on the onscreen keyboard. But a sequence of characters appears after I press the spacebar. I looked online, and other people say they're having the same problem. When will this problem be fixed? I don't know if it's a problem with Termux, or the onscreen keyboard, or other part of the Samsung Galaxy, or some combination of those three, etc. But Termux seems to work fine on my larger Samsung Galaxy, and on my OnePlus 6t smart phone.

  5. guest-avatar

    First impressions are good. I think I'm going to find this very useful. One little "gotcha" that is worth noting: it doesn't automatically request storage access, so by default you can't read the contents of your sdcard(s). You need to specifically enable this in the apps section of Android settings.

  6. guest-avatar

    Great app! at last I have access to a working terminal on my phone. Everything works nicely. Just one small problem: where are the left and right arrows? Using vi without them is not pleasant.

  7. guest-avatar

    Termux unlocks full potential of smartphones by bringing up the ability to do almost anything a full fledged linux machine can do. Now for little tasks I don't have to bring my laptop everywhere with me, thanks to Termux. With time Termux only have improved and added new functionalities.

  8. guest-avatar

    I give 3star to these because it is good app for run plpgsql , c, c++ program but the plpgsql same database not open the next time if we exit the termux. New way have to create &feature of text editor like vim, nano are not easy to use while saving or closing the editor

  9. guest-avatar

    Keyboard commands can be a bit awkward on a phone (when in vim or emacs for example) although that's hardly their fault. Has most of the important packages available in the package manager and you can build whatever it doesn't.

  10. guest-avatar

    Excellent, pkg allows installation of most Unix utilities I use in my Linux distros. Currently shrinking a video using ffmpeg, installed wget, curl and many others. Only just scratched the surface of this app but very impressed. I haven't rooted either, didn't RTFM either. Thanks for bridging the convergence gap in a simple way. I did previously install it on a Samsung Note 4, it worked equally as well. Obviously this Samsung Note 10 adds a lot more ROM and CPU. Thanks for the work!

  11. guest-avatar

    Everytime i install c++ this script occured Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: libgeos-static : Depends: libgeos (= 3.7.2-3) but 3.8.0 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have

  12. guest-avatar

    There is an issue with some kind of virtual keyboards.. Eg. Google indica. N facemoji keyboard etc... While Typing the letters are not seen... After taping space.. They will directly appears... Im using hackers keyboard.. Its work good n useful for this app.

  13. guest-avatar

    great app. really useful. I use to run YouTube-dl with it and it's very fast. a pity there is no a default path for binary files ( no /usr/local/bin, /usr/bin is read only) and I have to type the absolute path for the binary file. too bad there are no left right arrow keys for editing stuff

  14. guest-avatar

    I love this! The package system is surprisingly solid, I had no problems setting up git with ssh, editing a file in vim and building it via llvm. Whether looking at code on your phone is particularly comfortable is debatable, but I'm very happy having a mildly more productive alternative to cash grab games and social media.

  15. guest-avatar

    Was working like a charm since recent Android 9.0 update (tested on Samsung Galaxy S8). I am not able to see the writen characters anymore but it appears when getting to the next word (entering a space).

  16. guest-avatar

    WARNING: You are using pip version 19.2.3, however version 20.0.2 is available. You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command. $ pip install --upgrade pip No command pip found, did you mean: Command php in package php Command ip in package termux-tools Command zip in package zip Pls help to fix that

  17. guest-avatar

    looked for SSH Android for ages and all failed until i found this app... tried to run an SSH command, and it prompted me to install OpenSSH, which I did... and it worked like a charm, which in turn allowed me to run VNCServer command and link to my RPI3. THIS is a FANTASTIC terminal app and can't wait to try out all the other Linux projects on my Samsung S6 tablet. Thanks guys you're the best.

  18. guest-avatar

    With Termux on my phone, i never have to miss the terminal tools that i use on my linux machine. I can view and edit files, i use it as downloader and even to transfer the files between all my devices via SCP/FTP. youtube-dl with ffmpeg great for downloading videos and mp3. Thanks for this app!

    This app is very good for programming lovers. We can easily run packages in this app. However, I found it difficult to connect both python and mariadb(mysql) using mysql-connector. Besides, there was some sort of problem with installation of metasploit.

  20. guest-avatar

    If you like working in CLI, then this is an excellent emulator. You can personalize your environment by creating .bashrc and .bash_aliases, as you would in a linux bash envirinment. You can install the man pages. You can even use a graphical X11 desktop. Check the wiki page. An excellent terminal emulator!

    Good experience. I found when other Linux apps were aren't satisfying as much but still enjoyed it and my YouTubers recommended this one and makes usage of this the most and having more of tools for all the type of testing and also doing other types of development where have this one good in finding and also usage of parrot is from anlinux is my favourite choice I have made so that it was good and impressive for the accessories and availability so far. The apps does seems to have some crashes..

  22. guest-avatar

    Love it! Really good functionality Is there a way to disable the vibration bell? It's really annoying. Alas, After update by Samsung, word completion is preventing entering commands and passwords. I fixed it by installing: hacker's keyboard So for me, I recommend A++

  23. guest-avatar

    Speechless... Infinity of what you can do now with your device ... even if not rooted. Especially, with Termux:API feature you have access to the main functions of your device. Downside is the lack of documentation for newly users. Cheers!

  24. guest-avatar

    Matthieu Chatelan


    Great tool, but what would be good is to be able to change the keys at the top of the keyboard, for instance being able to add "/" for quick access. Moreover, double tab on the console to perform a tab completion would be great like other programs

  25. guest-avatar

    Sandeep Kumar MN


    Everything about this app is great. Few suggestions: 1. Add left and right arrows keys, it is hard to navigate through a line. 2. Make the storage accessable from the device to add files etc,.

  26. guest-avatar

    Many thanks for developing and maintaining this. A ton of commands and you can still install any other needed via packages, within the app(just a simple command - pkg install packagename). I think this is soon going to be the go-to terminal for Android

  27. guest-avatar

    Invisible text when typing and other random text insertion from keyboard suggestions. Only numbers are visible when typing. The text becomes visible when you hit the enter. Samsung a70

  28. guest-avatar

    So far so very good. Amazing, really. Will let you know if I find any gotchas. None so far. Lots of people ask for left/right arrow keys (me too) but ad-free, open source if slightly cramped CodeBoard app provides these for Termux.

  29. guest-avatar

    Dimitrios Zacharatos


    You can do several things with it . This is a brilliant application for ssh and much more. I really wish however to see something working like Terminator with multiple windows and tabs

  30. guest-avatar

    Great app, would be five stars if the style pack was free. That's all I need, I don't care about any of the other paid add-ons, just the style pack. I have an inexplicable desire for powerline fonts.

  31. guest-avatar

    It's great. But I'm getting a bug on android 9, when I type, the text doesn't show up until I click space or enter

  32. guest-avatar

    One word: BEAST! Perfect app if you want your mobile to behave as server, I've installed Node.js, Python working as expected no flaw. Thank you very much.

  33. guest-avatar

    Gordian Edenhofer


    A truly awesome tool which really let's you feel that you're are running Linux and gives you all (most) of the power from the command lines tools you might miss from a dedicated desktop computer.

  34. guest-avatar

    Termux commands are executing properly but the characters are not appearing as I type them on my Samsung Galaxy note 9.Please provide an appropriate solution for it.otherwise the app is great.

  35. guest-avatar

    Yušká Brailly


    Love it, only thing I want to change is per sefailt have left and right arrow keys added. Its a pain to add them without having them. :D

  36. guest-avatar

    Is not working properly with Samsung keyboard in Android 10. I switched to Google keyboard and that resolved the issue of text not appearing as you type.

  37. guest-avatar

    Very useful app for learn and practice linux and command line especially for beginners, it's cool , but not good with gui environments.

  38. guest-avatar

    Noel Aristides Galdamez Aleman


    I like this app. It's the most complete Linux terminal emulator I have tried. I can use the commons commands and aplications like less, vi, etc. I even installed packages of applications like vim, nano, open-ssh, etc.

  39. guest-avatar

    Good for mobile... It would be great if "full line text" could be displayed. Generally the command output that are large, can't see'em all. Like grep/cat command output

    Eitán Margalit


    Love it so much. If I want an app that doesn't exist? Boom. It's Termux, just, y'know, with a shell script I cobble together from StackExchange.

  41. guest-avatar

    This is a great app. I use it all the time. I use it for software development. I hardly use my laptop anymore for development work. It's super stable, day, works well, it's great!

  42. guest-avatar

    Well I have not been using this app to its full potential but it really helps me to keep running some of my scripts, testing some codes or for git. Really a great app to run Linux shells on Android!

  43. guest-avatar

    This is probably the best thing on the Play Store. Perfect to acquaint yourself with Linux when your in an uninteresting class or gathering. Loved it. Give me sudo access and I'll be completely sold. 🔥🔥

  44. guest-avatar

    It's a great app but the vi the keyboard doesn't add directional keys like it does with TAB and ESC. This makes writing in vim very difficult and becomes a large hassle to edit

  45. guest-avatar

    Robert Hoffman III


    Installed vim, Apache, git and setup a local web server for goofing off. Does everything I need. Slight learning curve/web searches enabling keyboard vs physical buttons, but otherwise great app. tested symlink, Apache, git, aliases, .bashrc load variables, everything works just fine.

  46. guest-avatar

    Such a very excellent app It is very helpful when I haven't laptop This app to clear my Linux operating system paper Thanks for this app developer. Please can u make app like this for only cpp in oop design Please please Thank u so much By by Good Day!!¡!!!😎😎😎😂😅
