Reviews of TN5250

  • Still doesn’t work with Apple Keyboards

    It works as long as you don’t want to use any Apple keyboards like the Magic or Smart keyboards. It used to work like a year or so ago, you could hit the keyboard button, select wireless, and it worked. I have been all over setups and can’t find anything to help.
    I can’t be productive if I have to hold my iPad in my lap and use the iOS keyboard.

    Developer Response

    version 5.0 supports an external keyboard. If the iOS is older than 14, you must enable tn5250: menu - configure - wireless keyboard
  • Nice, but doesn’t work with Apple Magic Keyboard

    I have used this app on my iPhone before, but it does not respond to physical keyboard input.

    Developer Response

    version 5.0 supports an external keyboard. If the iOS is older than 14, you must enable tn5250: menu - configure - wireless keyboard
  • Need the enter key back

    This app went from five stars to a one star. The enter key is now gone on the top right of the screen and you have to swipe through the keyboard to find it. You put the most used key at the end of the list. It is so inefficient now with the placement of the enter key it is unusable for efficiency. Not anywhere near the page up and down key. Makes no sense at all. I challenge whoever made this decision to login and try using your app without being frustrated the whole time.

    Developer Response

    Enter key can be configured in menu - configure - swap done with return : YES/NO
