    "ConnectBot works as it is expected and my needs for a console ssh client. I doesn't work across all platforms, which is a shame. One annoyance on the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is that editing a host is not usable. It can be buggy at times, which I am hoping will be addressed in the next update. I often find myself having to uninstall and reinstall the app for it to work properly."

    "Get Console is an app that provides physical serial console access. Personally, I have no idea what it means. To me, important part is that this app costs $9.99 and it has too few reviews to figure out what it does and whether it is good at all. Probably, someone who works as a system administrator may find it useful but for general audience Get Console is of no interest. "

    "One thing about being an IT administrator is the fact that you have many different logins and passwords to keep up with. Therefore, a password manager is your best friend! This app is great because it will keep your logins safe, while also containing your bank info and other private and important information. I love it!"
