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.
* On Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S II, SSH has issues with some WiFi routers.
Thanks for using BTEP!

Not very easy to use on a touch screen, trying to move the cursor to edit text was s nightmare
Love it. Now I can ssh into my ubuntu server from my phone.
Great App. No denied permissions etc. Would give 5 stars if you could include a widget so a terminal could be open and tied to a home screen.
Uninstalled only for more space, Lol. I wish all my apps were installed to SD.
Wow! Really cool! Developer paid attention to details, options, wording, etc. Not sure how to set custom colors, like how Chomp does it.
SSH client needs to catch up with some of the features of IRSSI, such as persistent connections, ongoing notification etc.
Truth Seeker (*****)
One of the best apps for Android.
Too many app drawer icons, but this is the ONLY app that lets me MUD properly from my phone.
