There are many things JuiceSSH is doing right and a few things that are a bit confusing. An example of the latter is the way keys and identities are handled. The biggest issue currently is that updates have become once a year events and the only thing the last update fixed was a bug in buying the paid version. There are some long standing issues that have not been fixed. E.g. public ECDSA keys that don't require padding don't work. Also the client doesn't seem to work with ECDSA server keys. Not to mention ED25519 keys which are not supported at all. The competition has run past JuiceSSH in this regard and therefore I cannot recommend buying this right now. I hope they'll start updating more often.
I am using this for wake-on-lan. The router is RTN66U (aicloud's wol not working for some reason), so the more hands-on solution is to place a wol script on the router, and create a connection with JuiceSSH that will automatically run that script when connected and then exit. Works like a charm. Make sure that your router demands a key for authentication!
No substantial update in over 2 years. The most recent update proves the developers aren't looking to improve the app, they just want to sit back and continue to have money roll in. This is abandoned, hopefully someone can create a better experience on Android for ssh.
Super nice and provides fantastic features! With the auto generated SSH keys and the snippet for automatically taking care of sending the public key to the SSH server gives the user no reason to continue to use passwords.
User friendly and easy to adapt. Performs all the tasks that I needed. Remote sync is very useful, as I have 20 devices that I needed to access with multiple phones and other Android tablets. Night mode is very comfortable to view for extended periods of time. The pro version price is reasonable.
With the ability to tab complete and arrow keys, this is by far the best client you can find. Now it has an improved UI. It just keeps getting better.
