Better Terminal Emulator Pro

Available in :
BTEP is an advanced multi-session Terminal Emulator and SSH client for your phone, tablet and Google TV.  It also supports Telnet and FTP. Unleash the command line potential of the Android console with this terminal. Tons of real Linux utilities, root not required. Long press display for more options. Run native Linux apps with Better Terminal Emulator Pro. Excellent bluetooth, USB, hard and soft keyboard and Sywpe support, send all VT-220 character codes including F1-F20. Includes SSH/Telnet/FTP client, BusyBox, BASH Shell.

If you find any bugs or have any ideas for improvement, please contact me via email, or file a report at:

Please do not leave bug reports in the comments section, as there is not enough space to adequately describe the issue, and I have no way to respond in order to get more information.

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!

UTF8 support missing Almost perfect with the hacker's keyboard. But where's UTF-8 support? Very frustrating.

Great Terminal, a bit rough around the edges BTEP is everything you'd expect a terminal to be. The launcher for different (local/ssh/...) configurations is a bit clunky and working with ssh keys is a bit of a mess. Also I recently got me a bluetooth keyboard and BTEP has a bit of a problem with it: On a German keyboard, some common symbols like '~' or '@' are only reachable through the AltGr (aka right Alt) modifier key, which BTEP doesn't handle properly. It's kind of hard using a shell without those symbols...

Some free app I found is better. Bye BTEP! - Emulates VT100 only - Select/Copy/Paste is a pain - GUI dialogs and menu are ugly

by A Google User the 5/31/2013

Limited character set support? It doesn't display characters such as éößπà etc. So can't enter all german,french, or greek words! Galaxy S2, bash.

Very nice terminal I'm using a Logitech Revue with the full sized keyboard. There's an issue with getting some of the symbolic keys to send properly. Hopefully, this will be fixed in later releases. Also, switching in between running terminals is kludgy. The text rendering on my HD TV is gorgeous. So, if you can work around the two tiny issues, this is a great terminal app to have on your A/V system.

What I'm missing ... ... is a possibility to automatically close the window, and if it was the last one, the whole application, by leaving the shell. I'm using fullscreen mode and I don't know better method than to invoke the menu and use "Close window" from there, which is annoying. Otherwise, it's a good, highly configurable and flexible app.

I used to love this app. Since the last update, it's terrible. Since the last update, the app doesn't disable shift key use; I'll capitalize a letter, and then all other letters are capitalized, special characters show up, and keyboard shortcuts cause massive issues. Occasionally hitting shift again and typing a few letters fixes this, usually I have to completely close the app and reopen to get rid of it. Tested on two devices, same problem. This used to be great.

Great! Worked on my device when android terminal emulator failed. x86 processor.

The best SSH client for Android, The best way to SSH for Android, especially on a tablet with a proper keyboard. Needs internal server list. I'd pay lots for easy X forwarding but realise it means creating a whole X server. Easily a 5 star app.
