PHop67's Review of Tn5250

Reviewed on 11/26/18 12:41 PM

I'm no computer guru, but my employer has a lot of "back office" systems (Accounting, HR systems, etc.) on the iSeries and from the little bit of messing around I've done on this on the last few hours, this MochaSoft app does everything it's advertised to do. I'd give it 5 stars if it didn't put me back at the login screen each time I went to the home screen or to other apps. For those of you who are trashing this app even though they have no idea what it is or what it's functionality is, why? This app is great for a niche market of iSeries users who want to access the system remotely. If you don't use it or know what it is, save your keyboard strokes and don't review it. This seems like a common problem in the App Store. Why doesn't Apple prevent users from reviewing apps they haven't actually downloaded?

Works great, almost

Gunboy1's Review of Tn5250

I am down grading my rating to 1 star. After swapping 8-10 emails with tech support, I still have no answers. The question is simple, will this work over cellular as well as WIFI. The WIFI side of this is flawless. Cellular, not so much. I can not get it to connect. I can also not get a straight answer. If this is supposed to work over cellular, tech support should be able to help me set it up. WIFI was a breeze..... If help improves and straight answers are provided I will be happy to Raise my rating.

Great !!

This would be a great if it just supported using an the keyboard/doc. You have to flip among the onscreen keyboards so much that it's VERY slow going, so if it supports at least the alpha and numbers characters on the keyboard, it would make my remote support so much easier. As it it's just good for very light usage.

Great app!

JimAtVerizon's Review of Tn5250

Reviewed on 11/26/18 12:41 PM

This app works very well. You pretty much have to pay the $30 bucks for the full version. The lite version has very limited keyboard use and will drive you nuts with keyboard switching. Even with the full version, using the onscreen keyboard will drive you nuts in landscape mode. Use portrait and you get all the keys on the screen at the same time, then if you want to see 132 characters in a report, turn it to landscape. For fun, I tried a Logitech MX 5000 Bluetooth keyboard with it, and that makes the app almost as good as a regular pc access to the AS400, except I could not get the function keys on the physical keyboard to work. So I used the onscreen fx key board and the fx hotspots in landscape mode along with the physical keyboard, and that is workable. For the most part, use this app in the portrait mode with the onscreen keyboard when you need something to carry around the office. In your own office, use your pc terminal. Ideas for improvement. Let the user define keys as you can via a pc connection on Client Access, or give the user more buttons on the screen that can be defined by the user. Overall, an excellent app.

Only missing one thing!

bluetooth fail's Review of Tn5250

Reviewed on 11/26/18 12:41 PM

I was so hesitant to spend $30 on this app, price point is kind of high I Feel. Paid version does everything I need except pasting from the clipboard. Other than not being able to paste from clipboard, the app is fully functional and I am going to recommend the app for my co-workers. Volume licenses would be great, if they can do that with apps.

Works the iSeries like a Pro!

This app works just as described. From the 24 function keys to macros, everything is there, page up & down you name it. This is the best App for AS/400!
