Using TinyTERM Enterprise for Android

In addition to rock-solid connectivity, TinyTERM Enterprise for Android has several features to increase usability and security.

Title Bar

While connected, the title bar displays the name of the currently selected configuration and several buttons.

In the Web browser, the title bar shows the current URL. The left and right arrow keys move back and forward through the browser history.

In terminal emulator sessions, the session name displays in the title bar.

In either mode, the down arrow at the right opens the list of configurations, allowing you to create new configurations or edit existing ones.

Pinch Zoom

TinyTERM fills the available screen not used by the keyboard. In portrait mode, the terminal font is sized to fit in the window. In landscape mode, the terminal emulator font sizes by default to its maximum zoom.

In either portrait or landscape, the Industrial Browser fits the current page to the screen width.

With pinch zoom, you can shrink the TinyTERM display to fit the entire available space, or expand it to focus on a portion of the screen. When zoomed in, you can move around the current screen with a finger swipe. This works in either orientation, for browser or terminal sessions.

Chrome OS

On Chromebook and Chromebox devices, TinyTERM Enterprise starts full screen. This allows TinyTERM to use all function keys on the hardware keyboard. TinyTERM can be run in a window instead, in which case it runs in portrait mode. But some function keys will be unavailable, as ChromeOS will take them over for its own internal functions.
