Terminus is a full featured SSH terminal emulator with VT100, VT220, ANSI, xterm-color compatibility designed specifically for the iPad.

If you think that the iPad deserves better than an upscaled version of an iPhone terminal emulator. If you favor simplicity over complexity then Terminus has been made right for you.

Unique features include:

- Full vt100 keyboard with arrow keys, fn, control and escape keys. Text editors like vi or emacs are much more usuable when you can just type the way you're used to.

- Two finger swipe as a shortcut for arrow keys: quickly scroll through your command history, move the cursor around in vi, emacs, man... Try it! you won't be able to do without it.

- Automatic terminal resize on orientation change, applications are aware of the number of visible lines.

- Instant access to history: just scroll the window to view it.

Also features :

- Multiple simultaneous connections,

- Auto-completion support using the Tab key,

- Master password to protect and crypt your saved passwords.

Doesn't work well with bluetooth keyboard

This app seems to be fairly well designed but there are definitely a few problems. The most glaring issue I've seen is that I cannot properly use my Apple bluetooth keyboard in conjunction with this app. If you do this, keys will be inserted at random even though they are not present on the screen. For example, I tried using the 'source' command like so:

$>source .hiddendir/the/file/I/wanted/to/source

and this program sent the following instead

$>soource .hiddendir/the/file/I/wanted/to/source

which obviously caused an error by introducing extra characters that I had not typed. I checked multiple times and did not misspell the word source nor was it autocorrected.

The next issue I've ran into is that you cannot hide the on screen keyboard and still type, so even though I'm using a bluetooth keyboard I can't utilize the full screen space because a large portion is consumed by the mandatory onscreen keyboard.

3/5 stars

Doesn't work with normal keyboard dock either

Need to have their onscreen kbd up even when using the apple keyboard dock accessory. Cuts screen real estate in half right there.

5/5 stars

Better than iSSH

This is the best ssh client I've had on the iPad. The keyboard does it alone. The apple default keyboard api lacks key functions of a real keyboard such as arrow keys or escape which is fine for using safari, but the command line is built around a full keyboard. Terminus has an amazing custom keyboard with all of the keys your used to. It's much more comfortable to work on than other ssh clients I've seen.
