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!

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!

Good and getting better

Recent releases have fixed quite a bit of the issues that the app was having. as of now, this is a pretty impressive SSH app, especially for the price!

Over all, a nice SSH client

The app does a fine job of being an ssh client/terminal. However, for private keys, it does not have key agent forwarding and thus systems with multi-hops do not work unless you have your private key at the intermediate hop. It would also be nice to have a way to keep the passphrase known for a session such that re-connecting to a server after a connection drop does not require re-entering the passphrase. I hope that when I buy it that the full screen space will be used (no more ads)

Much Promise

Here are my suggestions so far -Why is there is a resizing option for the terminal window. App has to run in fullscreen anyway, so why not make the terminal window as large as possible with no resize option. -Syntax highlight colors don't show in VIM (but other colors show, with ls command for example) -Server list should indicate connection status -Better styling of app overall Great start, can't wait for more. This may help me decide between Surface RT/Pro. Probably expect a purchase from me.

Supporting development

As some have said before, it is lacking some key features as tunneling, better use of screen, not fixing it to 80x25, full screen, pgdn,pgup arrow keys are not working etc. But...hey we have got a ssh client and we should support the developer, it will surely improve a lot in a very short time. Keep it up!

Much improved in such a short amount of time!

Still not quite 5 star worthy, but it is quickly getting there. VT100 support is MUCH improved, still a few little bugs here and there but it's much better. Terminal resizing is great but it would be nice to see a full screen option. It would also be nice if there was an option to create a SOCKS proxy as I often tunnel over SSH on unencrypted public wifi.

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.
