Some really functional apps are appearing for Mango, which is superb news. SSH Client is no different, providing server administrators and geeks the tools to connect via SSH (Secure Shell) to installations. While this is something easily achieved via terminal, it's a feature that I'm sure many would love to see come to Windows Phone.

The app itself supports an on-screen keyboard, private key support, terminal font and the ability to save connections for future use. A paid version is on the way which will include Telnet support, Url parsing, more configurable settings, portrait mode, live tiles for pinning connections, backlog support, customisable click-areas on screen for quick commands, support for common commands including Ctrl, Alt, Esc, Tab, Cursor keys and much more. You can download SSH Client (opens in new tab) over at the Marketplace.

Thanks for the heads up Tommi!

  • Yes!! I have been waiting for this. Will give it a try for sure. :)
  • they would charge for the live tiles...figures
  • SSH client is great. THe only drawback that I can see is that while typing and the keyboard pops up you are not able to see what you are typing.
  • nice. one step closer to not carrying the work blackberry around.
  • Cannot find this in the marketplace at all, any clue why not?
  • Somehow that upper link doesn't work in some countries, here's another zune link:http://redirect.zune.net/External/LaunchZuneProtocol.aspx?pathuri=naviga... Also mitrafishes: you can use "make room for on-screen keyboard" option in the settings to see what you are typing.-Tommi
