    Can you add backspace when local echo? Then perfect.

  • Very useful app, makes life easier Dec 17, 2013

    By MacsOKButAndroidIsFuture
    Well, maybe only if your life includes some amount of IT administration. I have been using this developer's RDP app (for iPad) for a year or two, mainly for simple WOL commands. Recently I setup several FreeNAS servers and wanted to be able to send WOL commands through an SSH Terminal to other systems on the network, from external networks. This app makes it very easy; using macros to store commands for different machines. Now, at each site I need only the FreeNAS server running, Telnet in, execute a macro and wake any other machine up. This app saves energy!

    5 minutes for a console session on a smartphone ? I think this is just a joke. I laughed a little, then uninstalled.

  • Worse with every update Sep 21, 2019

    By barakari
    I first started using this app years ago on an iPhone 4. It worked great, scanned quickly, didn’t have a 5 minute limitation on the free version, and did everything I needed it to do. After upgrading phones and getting the updated app, I noticed that each update is making the app worse. The scanning feature deteriorated to a point where it takes forever to properly find a barcode. Why would they update an app that would make a newer phone harder to use than an iPhone 4? The most recent update moved the enter button and replaced it with a second, useless keyboard button. Years ago I contacted the developers about issues I had with scanning after an update and they basically said they didn’t care. If the scanner worked like it should and the developers didn’t continue making the product worse with each update, I would happily spend the $5 to upgrade to the unlimited version, but until that happens, I guess I’ll just reconnect every 5 minutes. If there was another app option, I would use it in a heartbeat.

  • I disabled auto update because of this Oct 26, 2017

    By JDBYoshi
    When I originally downloaded this app, there were very few limitations, mainly concerning which keys you could press. Then the developer updated the app and changed the limitation: the full keyboard was available, but sessions cannot last longer than five minutes. I held off updating for three months, and would have waited longer had I not accidentally hit the button. It was uninstalled in less than 60 seconds. Sorry, but I’m not allowing that.

    Keyboard no longer works, and now I lost the ability of using app for more than five minutes. Those two issues were not there prior to updates.

  • Convenient! Sep 8, 2011

    By Datacrush
    Does exactly what a Telnet client does! It's like being at my computer using Telnet from command line and might be even slightly better than that. There is some minor configuration to be done like turning on LR to CRLF switch for most telnet servers but you'll figure it out pretty quick. Handy tool for support! Convenient!

  • Works Great Aug 5, 2008

    By Hchavarria
    After using the Mocha VNC app I couldn't help downloading Telnet Lite, this app just like VNC work great. I am a network admin and often require access to my cisco gear while on the road or when I don't have my laptop around and now with this app I have the missing link to become 100% mobile. I recommend this app and works as described.

  • Good, but strange design decision Apr 9, 2014

    By Oknazevad
    While the app does what it's supposed to, and does it well for the most part, the decision to make the in-keyboard button the "done" button, instead of the enter one is odd, especially considering that's usually where the enter button is located. Other than that, it is good.

  • Unhelpful developers May 21, 2010

    By berkinet
    You cannot control how received line-endings are handled. I need to connect to an application that sends lf (\n) terminated lines. But, Mocha Telnet Lite (and probably Mocha Telnet) will not insert the cr (\r). This causes the output to "stair-step" down the screen. I wrote the developer and their response was "we don't do that." Well, I don't buy their products. Otherwise, the app does, mostly, what it says. But, the display is crude and the characters hard to read. Too bad there is not a better free telnet app out there, and I don't feel like paying $10 just to find another app with the same problem. I resolved my problem by creating a special account that runs the telnet as its login app, and I connect with ssh.

    Was a great app, worked great for my purpose, was reliable and didn't have a time limit, now, with a 5 minute time limit, it's useless, and must be replaced by another app. Good thing there is much competition in this area, and other free apps work just as well with no time limit.
