13 fun Android apps for Linux/Unix fans!
You will find almost any app in the Android Market to suit your requirement. In this post I have compiled a list of apps that will particularly interest Linux users! Some apps are intended for mere fun while you will find others helpful for referencing.
You will find a number of apps that provide you with a handy list of commands for Unix/Linux. Below I have highlighted few such notable apps.
The app contains over 500 Linux commands. Each command is elaborated with syntax, description, and command options in a simple straight forward interface. Among the many apps available in the market for Linux command referencing this app is definitely more comprehensive and elaborated. The commands though do not have examples that most of Linux users might miss. Search feature is also missing. Download remotely.
2-Unix and Linux commands
The app will provide you a handy quick reference to Unix/Linux commands. The app can be useful for quick referencing, especially for beginners. The app specifically targets new bees of Linux; expecting more from the app is bit unfair. The app will require you to connect to the internet for working; therefore you may not be able to refer to the app when you do not have an internet connection, this might be very unacceptable attimes. The app also does not have a search option making it a bit tedious to find required command. Download remotely
3-Linux command list
Another app to reference Linux commands, yet in its preliminary stages. The app lists relevant suggestions as you search for a particular command. Download Remotely.

The app enables you to run linux command line utilities on your android phone.You will feel this app to be just like a normal Linux terminal. You will enjoy the app if you are a Linux freak! Download Remotely.
6-Fake Linux Emulator
Simple and funny app to play prank on your friends. The app gives an impression that you are running Linux on your Android phone. The app isn’t free! Download Remotely.
Its interesting that some real terminals are free while the fake one cost you a few dollars!
If you are an active Linux developer or are engaged in some Linux learning then this app is just for you. The app provides you with an option to learn about open source and Linux by accessing linuxquestions.org. Using the app to access the website you can engage in Linux related discussions and actively post personal messages and questions to experts. Download Remotely.

10-Unix Epoch Converter
Simple app to convert unix epoch to human conceivable readable time. The app will display the conversion in GMT as well as in device’s default time zone. The App is an open source and the code can be found here.
Another app that works similarly is UNIX Time Converter. This app will also display current UNIX time and will support both portrait and landscape mode. The app is completely free and wont display ads.
