I have been waiting for an app with these capabilities for years. I was using JuiceSSH up until now, however, development there has been stagnating for quite some time. I was elated when I discovered this application, as it finally allows me to use my YubiKey for SSH authentication on my phone. And while I was prepeared to miss out on some features in return, the app provides every comfort I'm used to from my previous experience. If I were to wish for one addition, it would be agent forwarding.

It's a good terminal, but unfortunately stopped supporting authentication using OpenKeyChain. This is a huge loss of convenience in my opinion. I loved the idea of having all your keys in one place, as I also use it for the password store app. HINT for people in the same situation: I ended up downloading TermBot from some mirror. Do not use, as it doesn't support RSA authentication subkeys (SSH) of OpenKeyChain.

Amazing app, great work! Love how hassle free it works with Yubikey NFC. For a feature request, I would love an ability to group hosts (e.g. build servers, UATs) and copy hosts (some of mine have a quite extensive setup and it would be great, if I could just copy / paste and change the IP address).
