Last year Rove admitted the error of their ways and re-released their powerful Mobile SSH app on the market. They released it at a $29.99 price point which was much lower than the previous $99 price tag. Now that they have some serious competition from the free BBSSH client it looks like they have taken things one step further and made Mobile SSH totally free!
The team at BBCool noticed that Rove is now listing their Mobile SSH client for free on App World. I am not sure when they made the switch but I am loving it. Mobile SSH is a solid app and at this price tag I can see tons of users picking it up. BBSSH won’t be going away from my BlackBerry anytime soon but now it lives side by side with Mobile SSH.
Rove Mobile SSH gives you the ability to connect to:
- Unix and Linux machines
- IBM mainframes
- AS/400 and iSeries
- Routers and switches
- SSH1 and SSH2 for secure access
- SSH2 public key authentication for enhanced security
- User-definable shortcut keys
- VT100 terminal emulation
- IBM 5250 terminal emulation
- IBM 3270 terminal emulation
