Great for tablets such as the Viewsonic gTablet, Motorola Xoom, Galaxy Tab 10.1, ASUS Transformer!

Works great with the Motorola Bluetooth Keyboard and Apple Wireless Keyboard on Xoom and Galaxy Tab 10.1. Honeycomb support for the tablet form factor as well as HDMI out on the Xoom. Works well with Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 keyboard dock.

If you are having trouble with the soft keyboard on HTC phones like the Desire HD or Thunderbolt, try changing to another soft keyboard. Seems like the HTC soft keyboard has some issues with BTEP, but other keyboards work fine. Hacker's Keyboard is my new favorite keyboard for use with BTEP.

Now includes Frotz and the classic Colossal Cave Adventure game in the enhanced utilities for fun. Busybox has recently been updated to support SMP systems, ie, in "top."

Explanation of Permissions:

System Tools - Install Shortcuts, does what it says.

Known issues:

Good app, but now crashes everytime I have a terminal open and touch the screen to load the keyboard. It seems it crashes loading the keyboard. I'm running a nexus 5 with lolipop 5.1.1

Not compiled with pie for android 5 I really wished this worked, as I really wanted to play with the altairz80 emulator. If the app gets updated I will buy it.

Samsung S6 Touch events buggy on galaxy 6, cant bring up edit text menu consistently, which is necessary in fullscreen mode if you want to get to settings. Please allow binding menu key to something other than right alt as most keyboards dont have one. On another note, cant find a better terminal app, its the best. Please address these issues and update your website. Thanks - David

Was Great, Now Sucks I wrote a review of this app on 5/16/2015 in which I said this has been my go-to app for years until it quit working with that particular update. Well, you *still* can't contact the developer, and the current version *still* crashes when you summon the OSK. Seriously, what is going on? Running a Nexus 4 using Android 5.1.1. Nothing weird or customized.
