Terminal apps for iOS. Use Command Line on iPhone

When you will jailbreak your iOS you can download advanced command line tools on iPhone or iPad like Mobile Terminal, NewTerm 2 or MTerminal. Install the most popular and free terminal apps for iOS and discover available iOS terminal commands. Works on iOS 6 - 12.1.2.

Using a terminal app on iOS you can create, rename, delete files and folders, display file list, change file attributes, compress files, display the actual date and running time, search for fixed-character strings in a file or files, and many others.
