Automate Your Linux Commands with a Single Click (For Android Devices)

However, this "tool" is now on your Android phone and can easily accessed by using a terminal emulator to run your day-to-day commands.

The terminal emulator is a great tool to have but what to do if you want more, or if you run a command everyday and hate writing it over and over again given you have root?

If you've ever wished you could automate the commands and never have to write them once again, then Android app QuickTerminal is just the app for you.
