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."

Crashes on Lolipop This app was working great but now in latest stable build of Android 5.0 Lolipop, it crashes whenever trying to bring the keyboard up. Really hope this is updated soon, as this was my go-to Terminal emulator

Very useful Very useful when you need quick so access to check a log file or do other simple tasks (I'm using this on a galaxy node2). Probably even more useful on a tablet.
