User Reviews for OpenTerm

Just needs a better way of explaining

Yet right now I don’t know the real potential of this app and the way it teaches should have been like the desktop cmd to where in the text it gives examples and what it can use with it. Overall I feel amazing having this on my phone though. Even though I’m kinda confused about it.

fantastic beginnings

as this isn't real just very simulated almost fake maybe it's time to give it real world use. id like to be able to easily use local files & interact with my stuff vs your implementation. i bet you can build that very easily.

Missing DIG

I purchased this app to use the DIG command on mobile to check DNS configuration but that command was missing, despite it being listed on the app description.

Don’t spend your money on this

You can’t do much with this and I can’t believe I spent money on this crap

Doesn’t show enough lines when using SSH

Doesn’t out put enough lines when you SSH into a remote device. Makes it really hard to see the result of commands that you’ve ran.

ssh is really bad

Not worth it I tried to use ssh, is get connected but i cant run the commandfor example when i type pwdit print pwd instead of the path and it stopped responding !

Screen printing bad

No matter what command I try to use, if they have to print output on the terminal (ls, cat...) I can only see the very first line. If there is more info but it's longer than one line, it just doesn't show up. Could you please fix this or at least give money back. I thought if it was a paid app the minimum would be working. I have an iphoneSE second generation (iOS 15.4.1)

It was a mistake to pay $5 for this.

First thing I tried to do with this was ssh to a local server I have in the house and the password prompt didn’t even obscure my password as I typed it. Once I was logged into my server I then tried to use sudo and it kept sending an enter key while I was trying to type my password. This app is a useless rip off.

So far so good

It’s amusing to see reviews from users who have very little or no idea on how to use this app. For users who have extensive experience with Linux shells and CLI, it becomes readily clear what this app is for. There are limitations on what this app can do, but the capabilities it already has can come in handy in certain situations. For a more powerful app, try LibTerm or a-Shell, both of which were open source and available for free on the App Store as of this writing. For users who have never used CLI on Linux, I suggest that you first learn it and use it on Linux for real-world useful stuff for maybe a couple weeks or months until you are really comfortable with it, before tackling this or other similar apps.

Nothing works

Most of the commands are not installed and developer website doesn’t seem real don’t think it’s the real developer probably coded with hidden malicious scripts etc.Like I said more then half of the commands, modules etc don’t work I didn’t know I was paying for just the shell, no repos etc. every other app comes full with the basics I also did a search on line for open term and the links were dead because open term was removed. I imagine that’s why your website is http only. Scam. Otherwise refund my purchase please.
