    • It functions well
    • It's comprehensive
    • Smooth performance
    • Screen resize issues
    • Not for everyone

    "Grab The Scalpel And Do Android Surgery"


    Terminal Emulator provides you with the keys to the castle. Immerse yourself in complete and total Linux emulation. Manage multiple windows at a time and use shortcuts to get around. Although this app may not be for everyone, those who it's for will like it.


    If you are looking for an app that will allow you to get into the nuts and bolts of your Android device, this one is for you. The app file size is extremely small and performance is zippy. If you know what you are doing and are looking to break into the vault, Terminal Emulator has got the goods.


    Is there an easy way to resize to full screen mode? This app is not for the layperson. So there will be no reusability for some and a ton for others.

    Access your Android's built-in Linux command line shell. Unleash your inner geek!

    This is a new version of the popular "Android Terminal Emulator" application. Same great program, just with a new name.

    Top Features

    + Full Linux terminal emulation.
    + Multiple windows.
    + Launcher short cuts.
    + UTF-8 text. (Arabic, Chinese, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Thai, etc.)
    + Completely free. No ads, no in-app-purchases, no nag screens, nothing.

    Quick FAQ:

    + If you are having trouble entering text, try installing the free "Hacker's Keyboard IME". (Especially if you have a Samsung or HTC device.)
    + This app isn't a game emulator.
    + This app won't help you root your phone or change your phone's IMEI.
    + You need to know (or be willing to learn) how to use the Linux command line to use this app.
    + You may want to install a set of command line utilities like "Busy Box" or "Debian chroot" in order to add commands beyond the commands that come built into your Android device.
    + If you get a -505 error when trying to install this app under Android 5.0, it means that some other app is using the same permissions. You will have to uninstall the other app in order to install Terminal Emulator for Android. (People tell me that "jrummy's Toolbox Pro" causes this problem.)

    Volume keys do not work with this app to provide control and function keys (Moto X Play, marshmallow, nougat). This used to work well on my Google Samsung Galaxy Nexus years ago, so QA has missed this. Does work with hacker keyboard though, suggest adding keyboard layout selector to preferences for phones that don't send volume button codes in an expected way.
