Works great. No muss no fuss. Love that it displays the connect string (firstname.lastname@example.org.....) as a reminder. Best solution so far to copy files to my device (via rsync or sshfs on desktop computer). Cons: 1.) It should really prompt to change the default password on first use. 2.) It should make it easier to add my desktop key, for passwordless login. Maybe prompt at first connection from the desktop? 3.) Something as sensitive as an SSH server should be open source. How do I know this does not phone home?
This app is very handy for anyone needing to use the terminal on their phone, but prefer to use their desktop. This makes it much easier. It also works well with Linux Deploy, but on a separate port. I haven't found any problems using this app on any of my devices, and it is possible to get rid of the ads, so I give it 5 stars.
Love it! Let's me rsync to and from my phone, makes it fast and easy to transfer data without having to put confidential into "the cloud" temporarily. Wish it supported keeping timestamps when copying to phone, though. "Failed to set times on...: Operation not permitted"
Does not work When I try to connect, I can see in the logs that the connection has been established, but then nothing happens. I tried to contact the developers by email but they did not answer.
It's a good app, but useless without access to my SD card. The addition of rsync was a great progress, which allows me to transfer data between my phone and other devices, but not being able to access the SD makes it pointless. I know it's easy to fix, but I hope the developer adds this feature.
This app does not properly implement public key authentication, requiring private keys to be stored on the device and offering no means of providing public keys (which are what should be used for authentication) to the app to authenticate remote connections. I would be wary of this developer as they clearly do not understand public key infrastructure and appear to have a shaky understanding of security mechanisms.
