Great for tablets such as the Viewsonic gTablet, Motorola Xoom, Galaxy Tab 10.1, ASUS Transformer!

Works great with the Motorola Bluetooth Keyboard and Apple Wireless Keyboard on Xoom and Galaxy Tab 10.1. Honeycomb support for the tablet form factor as well as HDMI out on the Xoom. Works well with Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 keyboard dock.

If you are having trouble with the soft keyboard on HTC phones like the Desire HD or Thunderbolt, try changing to another soft keyboard. Seems like the HTC soft keyboard has some issues with BTEP, but other keyboards work fine. Hacker's Keyboard is my new favorite keyboard for use with BTEP.

Now includes Frotz and the classic Colossal Cave Adventure game in the enhanced utilities for fun. Busybox has recently been updated to support SMP systems, ie, in "top."

Explanation of Permissions:
All permissions used by BTEP are strictly for enabling the functionality of BTEP. BTEP does not contain any analytics, or collect any data.

Network Communication - Required so that the shell, SSH, Telnet, and FTP can access the Internet.
Storage - So you can manipulate contents of /sdcard/ on your device from the shell.
System Tools - Allow user to keep WiFi and/or display active if desired.
Hardware Controls - Control vibrator for vibration on cursor keys / virtual DPAD.
System Tools - Install Shortcuts, does what it says.

Known issues:
* On Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S II, SSH has issues with some WiFi routers.

Thanks for using BTEP!

    Special keys mentions 'Ball' to access control keys. What is 'Ball'? My Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has no such thing. Your web site is broken and I can't find your email address to ask. Your email isn't even in the application (normally under About).

    I think you're missing something fundamental, ssh tunnel. Would add this functionality? Thank you.

    No matter where I am, I seem to get calls from work telling me that random problem 'x' needs to be fixed immediately. With this app, I can (almost always) fix things wherever I happen to be! Only two problems... First, the directional keys don't always work for me. Sometimes they don't even appear. Second... I almost feel like I should give this a one star review BECAUSE it lets me work from anywh
