Product Overview

TinyTERM Plus for iOS     TinyTERM Plus for Android


TinyTERM Plus for iOS provides secure SSH, SSL and telnet access using exact terminal emulation for 21 terminal types, including IBM TN3270E, TN5250, VT420, Wyse 50/60.

What's New in Version 3.1.8

  • Full Unicode fonts included
  • Add license through Managed App Config

Print using AirPrint and Email

Emulator screen contents as well as host transparent print data streams can now be sent to AirPrint printers, as well as redirected to an email attachment, for saving or sending to others. Print jobs can be combined with our internal spooler, as well as configured for multiple virtual print devices.

Host transparent printing allows wireless printing to a local nearby printer without host reconfiguration as the iPad's location is changed. Options allow grouping of print or screen data into single or separate print jobs or emails.

Reliable automation allows one-touch connections

TinyTERM Plus allows fully automated connections to remote applications using its sophisticated macro record/playback, auto-connect and auto-login capabilities. Macro recording and playback allow the interaction between the user and the remote application to be recorded and later played back to automate the process. Username, password and other information can be stored separately or prompted for, so that configurations can be pre-built without including sensitive information, and deployed to large user groups. An auto-connect option allows connecting immediately after the user starts TinyTERM Plus, and auto-login will execute any pre-defined macro. The net result is that you can build one-touch solutions to accessing your remote application resources.

Configurations can be set to automatically reconnect, or prevented from accidental disconnection, for ease of use in mission critical applications.

Macros can prompt for private information

Macros can prompt for usernames or passwords and associated with various configurations so that a pre-built single set of configurations can be prepared and sent to multiple users, and then automatically save personalized login information. Macros can also be assigned to keystrokes to help navigate complex applications.

Onscreen Keyboard Remapping

An on-screen user interface allows all of TinyTERM Plus' custom keyboards to remap keys to an automated action, a macro, or a sequence of characters, allowing maximum flexibility for automating or customizing a process during host access.

Application display can be precisely configured for each keyboard mode in both landscape and portrait orientations. When the keyboard is dismissed, the same information can be displayed full-screen with the font scaled to fit, or the number of lines and columns increased allowing more information to be displayed with the same font size.
