It doesn't spam you with a bunch of ads you'll never intentionally click, so that alone is worth four stars. It would be five stars, but it's a little buggy. But it's free, it's actively supported, and It Just Works. I use this almost daily. The other recentreviews are worth reading to understand what you'll get. I do wish the row of extra keys was configurable, and I wish Enter was one of them (I frequently will up-arrow and enter to re-run a command), but you're crazy if you use anything else.

Not sure why anybody would use a different telnet/ssh tool on Android. This is the only one worth using. It's got a couple things I don't like (text entry cursor indicated position vs actual character position synchronization is bad, gets further and further apart with the right side of the screen on several phone models), and it won't accept some officially permitted punctuation characters in domain names, so you can't use it to connect to those services unless you know the IP address.

Out of all the SSH clients available for android, this is by far my favorite, and the only one ill use. I use a Galaxy S Relay 4G with a slide out QWERTY keyboard. None of the other clients are completly compatible. ConnectBot works perfectly with it. Other features I find important and are included are VT100 emulation including graphic characters, complete control of text colors, screen size, and font size. Special keys take up very small part of screen when displayed. no ads, free, and more!
