For years it has been a struggle to find a solid SSH client for my BlackBerry. I used to use Rove Mobile’s SSH client which I paid $99 for but I have had multitudes of problems since I moved to OS 5.0. Not to mention the fact that Rove idiotically pulled the product off the market and no longer supports it. I then started using MidpSSH and the custom build that was floating around which made life a little easier. The problem was that the MidpSSH project is that its main developer Karl does not have time to maintain the project anymore.
That is where Marc’s creation BBSSH steps in. Marc has been on a mission since the beginning of February to keep the core of MidpSSH but rewrite the rest using BlackBerry’s API’s ripping out the cross device compatibility.
When Luc brought the project to my attention I have to say that Marc’s hard work is paying off. His latest BBSSH 1.1.4 alpha performs very well on my BlackBerry Bold 9700 and I highly recommend it.
