If you’re running servers at home or work and need a way to monitor them from either your Android smartphone or tablet, look no further than JuiceSSH.
Sonelli, maker of JuiceSSH, just announced that it hit 500,000 users so from now until Tuesday, it’s giving away free updates to the ‘pro’ version of its app.
For those unfamilair, SSH or secure shell, is a network protocol that allows data to be exchanged over a secure channel between two computers and JuiceSSH is but one client available through Google Play.
The app is an all-in-one terminal client including SSH, Local Shell, Mosh and Telnet support, featuring a full color terminal / SSH client, pop-up keyboard, ability to use the volume keys to quickly change font size, external keyboard support, UTF-8 character support and support for two-factor authentication, plus it works out of the box with Ubuntu, RedHat, CentOS, Mint, Gentoo and all other versions of Linux.
JuiceSSH pro packs numerous other features such as quick and easy port forwards that can be connected to via the app or widget and can automatically open in a browser if required, the ability to integrate with Amazon AWS / EC2, ability to sync connections and automatically group servers based on their class or security groups, sync between multiple devices, automated AES-256 encrypted backups of all of your connections and settings, a widget for fast access to either your frequently used connections or a specific group, team collaboration, a “snippets library” for quick access to frequently used commands and terminal color themes.
To get the free upgrade, head to the link below and enter your email address, which “must be a Google hosted email address setup on your Android device,” then you will receive an automated email about how to activate your upgrade.
Sonelli also notes that the “lifetime license” is tied to your Google email address and is for an unlimited number of devices.
