Run Terminal Commands With A Single Tap On Android Using QuickTerminal

Being Linux-based, Android comes equipped with the power of Linux utilities under the hood, though that part of the OS is abstracted from the regular users and all Android apps are java-based, running on the Dalvik virtual machine of the OS. That said, rooted users can enjoy the privilege of using their Android device like a Linux machine, complete with the ability to run shell commands via any terminal app or ADB. Though in this era of GUI, not all users are comfortable with the idea of using a terminal. If you belong to that category of users but need to use some terminal command as a part of some guide or hack and don’t want to install a full-blown terminal emulator or ADB for the purpose, you now have an easy solution in QuickTerminal for Android.
