User Reviews for Termius: Terminal & SSH client

Great Extended Soft Keyboard

Cleanest look and feel too., but SFTP is locked behind a sub. model. I’d drop $59 for this in a heartbeat and consider up to $99, but even that would only get me 6 - 10 months of use under the subscription model. I have no fewer than 6 Raspberry Pi’s running throughout my house (not enterprise business) at any given time. Oh how sweet it is to do all I could want from my new iPad Air 3 without leaving the Lazyboy in the evenings. Well almost all. Not sftp. I don’t mind copying my Termius public key around by hand. That’s a good enterprise-pay feature. Ditto for on going Mosh dev, automated execution snippets, and so on. Until there is a one-time purchase option for personal use, or sftp is moved out to free, I see this as a product for business users. I could not recommend this product to makers or hobbyists. If you’re getting used to doing functional things on iOS/iPadOS now, hobbyists may as well get used to the individual quirks of something else with sftp instead, if you haven’t already tweaked your setup or copied your keys around.

Pricing model ransoms basic features

This app was great during the trial period. My favorite feature was that port forwarding didn’t time out after a few minutes, like it does for so many other apps. For two weeks, I was truly able to use my iPad Pro as a mobile workstation, working on Jupyter notebooks hosted on my desktop at work.Then the free trial expired, and port forwarding sessions began to die in the background after just a minute or two. This breaks the functionality of the app for me, rendering it basically useless. I understand why some of Termius’s advanced features can justifiably be sold as part of a subscription, but the way their pricing is currently structured, the developer gives you a taste of a working app for two weeks and then tries to charge you $100 to not intentionally break the app for one year. I refuse to pay anyone a subscription to keep them from breaking their own product. Charge me $20 up front and I’d be happy to pay. As it stands, I’ll go back to hauling my laptop around before I give this extortionist developer a cent of my money.

Perfect all in one app

Used this to mosh/ssh into a google compute engine flawlessly. SSH Tunneling (port forwarding) works perfectly with safari as well for my Rstudio server. (Had a minor bug on iPad where my kernel wouldn’t connect to my Jupyter notebooks on my other server, but it’s probably nothing to do with this app and more to do with iOS, since the ssh tunnel worked fine as far as being able to connect to the jupyter server). There’s even an unexpectedly convenient workaround for keeping your ssh tunnels open in the iOS background through the location tracking option. Everything I could have asked for as a first timer working with servers.Amazing job Termius team!

Best free SSH client on iOS

This is a great SSH client, with support for saving identities, key generation, and port forwarding even in the free version. The only downside is sessions cannot stay open in the background for more than 3 minutes, but that is a limitation of iOS itself, not Termius. I also wish it advised users to use SSH instead of Telnet the first time they use it because Telnet is unencrypted and you should really avoid using it if at all possible. I use Termius for connecting to my Debian server when I don't have my computer on me and need to do something that I can't do through the Webmin interface. The port forwarding feature comes in handy when I need to do something like connect to said Webmin interface remotely or use OpenVPN in public places when it is blocked (Surprisingly, I have run into this problem before, at an airport). Overall, a great app if you have a server and don't want to carry a computer around to access it.

Best FREE terminal app

Finding a free terminal client app with no ads that gives you the ability to save commands and unlimited hosts. They do well at telling you what they offer with their premium services, but do not push it or ad pop ups like others. Or watch this video every time you connect. Apps like these, that give you your ssh connection and if that’s all you want then have at it, but if you want more you can pay are few and far between. I suggest using the free version, and just on principle alone purchase some premium or the premium app. They are constantly updating and very active. I don’t leave many reviews for apps. And yes, us Linux, bash, terminal snobs are picky…but they do a very good job at having options for everyone. From advanced to noob.

Occasional users… read the user guide

I’ve not found a more functional and feature-rich ssh client for iOS. I don’t use Termius often, mainly because tapping on a phone is challenging, especially for long strings of commands that must be syntactically correct. Termius tries to help with that with Gestures mode (among other usability features), which you can conveniently toggle on/off. You’ll want to pay attention to that though—I wasn’t aware of the feature and it felt as though I was unable to scroll in the terminal pane (couldn’t see the entirety of command output). Same too with some necessary iOS input accommodations like “locking” the key in order to allow, say, -c. If you phone buzzes and it’s not behaving like you expect. Check for some of those other keys!

Perfect app - a bit shady review prodding

I am a paid subscriber. It is cheap for what it does and it does it very well. I would have given 5 stars but docked a star for the following.The app asks you what you think of the app and gives you some smiley/frown faces to pick from. I picked the max smiley face. Then it asks if I would review the app and I said yes because it is an amazing app. It then pops up a screen to where you can give it 1-5 stars and looks like an Apple rating. I give it 5 stars and then it has a button "for Write a Review". I think I would not and skip that and then it just goes away. I then check on Apple and no ratings are there. So, they are basically tricking people to get them to Apple ratings only if they are already loving it. So the ratings here will be skewed by this.

This is a great app! I use it all the time, especially when I am not near a terminal. Or even when I'm near one but just want to do a spot check.You can set up identities and keys. I just configured it to use RSA public key encryption. I can associate the key with a login and use that configuration to login. Very easy!You can also save multiple configurations for the different hosts and logins you need. I can now admin my system from anywhere. At dinner, on the trail, or anywhere I have my phone, or tablet, and internet.You customize your view so different terminal sessions can easily be distinguished. There is also a handy history log of all your login sessions.I don’t need sftp, but that can be added for the price of a subscription ($10 / year, I believe). For that price you also get snippets (macros), fingerprint recognition, plus more.(Edit) There was a keyboard issue that made ‘shift’ characters hard to enter (caps/special chars/etc) (There was a workaround, but inconvenient). This was fixed, so I keep my 5-star rating. There is a lot packed into this FREE app! Very nice!

Functionality is locked behind a VERY expensive subscription

I really want to like this app. It has excellent UI design which you don’t find often in ssh applications. My main problem with it is that a lot of its functionality, like SFTP, is locked behind a $10 per month subscription fee. That’s a LOT of money for an application like this. If it were a $30-$50 one-time payment, or a $5 subscription, I’d have no problem. For reference, 1Password is one of the all-time best utility iPhone apps for developers and it costs $4 per month.But $10 per month is $120 per year on top of all the other types of subscriptions that I already pay. That’s just too much. It’s 75% of a full-priced Adobe app. It’s more than I pay for Capture One. For an SFTP client. Why in God’s name???I can’t imagine that they’re making as much as they could have if their pricing model included casual users and hobbyists as well as the professional user base that it’s currently priced for.

The best one, but...

Your product is perfect, but please keep marketers away from interfaces and development! Personally, for more than a year I have been suffering on MacOS from banner ads about the "teams feature", which I don’t need! On my iPad today I got stuck with a colorful update button that forced me to click on it and change my data plan, I don't need that! I've already been paying you the most expensive app store subscription for many years in a row! Please, stop selling me what I don't need! With each update, the application on the iPad becomes more and more unstable and has to be closed and reopened all the time when I switching apps. Pay attention to the quality of your product, not cheap marketing moves! --- Fan of Termius for many years.
