Version notes

Release 10 Notes: Complete redesign of the UI optimized for Windows 8.1 Fixed some issues with screen flickering, background connections, and more. Telnet connections are available. Telnet may not work correctly for all servers, please report any bugs encountered. URLs can be opened by right clicking the Terminal and selecting one of the “quick open” urls, or opening the URL Popup which lists all available URLs in the current screen buffer. The swipe gesture can be used to switch between terminals. While using a mouse, you may also use the left and right arrow buttons on the side of terminals to switch between terminals. AppBar buttons now shrink to show all available buttons when in portrait mode. Previously, they would extend out of the available space in the AppBar. Improved the design of popups.

This release may contain bugs, please contact support@devfluid with screenshots and details.

Installs Disruptive Ads

Says it's free but displays Ads all over the main screen while in use. Also it does not support basic terminal operations (SSH and Telnet yes, serial port NO) I am uninstalling it.

Unstable from the start

After installing, I started the app and it crashed. I then restarted it from the start menu, put in my server info and tried to connect... crash. Not ready for prime time.

Terminal works in Windows Surface RT

I would rate higher, but the ability to purchase and remove add seems broken. However, this program at least gives me SSH terminal access to my Mythbuntu machine without errors.

Compares favorably to old DOS com programs

The only way this is usable is if you've never used Linux, never installed PuTTY or Cygwin in Windows, and never used ConnectBot on an Android phone. ANSI support died with BBSes. I expect basic xterm-256color support. Also: Since it wasn't clear in the pictures, this is adware, it isn't free. Huge annoying ads. Surface Pro users should just install PuTTY. The Win8 look/feel isn't worth it.

Love it!

I enjoy the ability to connect to telnet and ssh in the same program with ease, while saving servers for quick use. Thank you!

Review Downgraded

I Just Downgraded my review a star, as I paid for Terminal RT and am now getting advertising; this is not acceptable for paying Customers! Previous review follows... A solid product & good value; this Paying Customer would like: · a true full screen mode · move the status information to the Command Bar; there's plenty room · support for 85:15 screen modes - true full screen terminal & command mode in 85% view - status mode in 15% view where just terminal status telemetry is displayed - multiple terminals in 15% where text color changes on delta from last full or 85% screen view · should not require reinstall to remove ads after purchase

clunky interface, drops connection, can't paste

The app looks pretty good. That's about the best you can say for it though, aside from the fact that it can, technically, connect over SSH. Bad interface, takes way too much tapping to do things. For example, after doing anything else with the app, you have to tap the window again to restore focus so keystrokes go to the server. Paste is broken. It's there, but you can only paste about 2 lines at once. Useless! Connection drops every time you switch apps! Terrible, especially without paste!

Bad Term Emulation

No color. Bad emulation. No scrolling. Windows don't fit fonts correctly. Probably the worst of the 3 for the Surface RT.

Does not work properly on Surface Pro

I don't see anyone else reporting this issue, but for me the bottom of the screen is not visible causing this app to be essentially useless. Full screen, large or small font, the same thing happens. Once the cursor gets to the bottom row of the terminal, you cannot see it and so cannot see what you are typing.

Current Favorite SSH Terminal

With a wireless keyboard and mouse this makes a handy terminal that can go full screen 132x40 with the larger of its two fonts. Cut and paste from IE into the terminal works correctly, and colors show up nicely. On the down side, this program loses connections frequently and has focus problems when selecting buttons on the context menu slowing down the process of reconnecting. Selecting text to copy from the SSH terminal is pretty unusable.
