Can't use private keys. I have an RSA PEM format certificate that Juice can't find on my SD card and when I manually enter the filename, it rejects it as an invalid filename without even checking the file contents. A browse feature for finding private key files would be extremely useful.
Looks nice and works. But there are many small things that should be improved, but the details would be too much for a short review, so I limit this to the biggest failure: I really wanted to unlock Pro. I wanted. But I read through the whole list of what I actually get by unlocking to Pro and was disappointed. Literally all the additional features are either some unimportant gimmicks or completely pointless and unnecessary. ESPECIALLY when I have to be charged 5,50 bucks for it. For those extra features I'd pay maybe 0,70 bucks. Max. So: either add maaaaaaaaaaaaany more and better Pro features or reduce the price drastically.
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.
Useless in short. Asks to buy extensions and pro version in every step and back button doesn't work when they ask you to buy their product. I wouldn't mind buying if I get to use the app and learn that paying for it worth it. At the moment just feels like forcing me to buy and it ain't gonna happen.
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!
I have had no problems with this SSH app ever. I liked it so much that I bought the pro version even though it had nothing I need. The base version is good enough for your tunneling needs. This is such a great program I deleted all my other SSH apps. I have used this app reliably on 4 different phones and a tablet (currently on a S8.) Great work guys I love it!
