Editors' Review


Looking for the most sophisticated terminal software with Unix-like options to access your Mac's system? MacTerm for Mac is a very powerful application, with tons of features, customization options, and a basic interface.

MacTerm for Mac is a free application that is currently in beta. This application doesn't have a native installer, but nevertheless it downloaded and installed quickly. If you are used to Apple's OS X Terminal application, after initiating the program you will be greeted with a very familiar interface, only with new icons and features on the toolbar. The application is basically a more advanced Apple OS X Terminal with extra features like Growl integration, shortcuts, advanced search, etc. The level of customization this application offers is pretty amazing and will be welcomed by advanced users. One of our favorite features is the Macro function that allows you to run complex tasks by just pressing a few key combinations. Although the application is still in beta, it runs surprisingly well and with no hiccups. However, the application is still not optimized for the new Retina Display, so the text and icons will be a little blurry for Retina users.

With plenty of features to offer, MacTerm for Mac seems to be a very powerful terminal application. This application is suitable for users who use their Terminal app very often, such as developers, programmers, administrators, and gamers.

What's new in version 4.1.0.b.20160927
  • Fixed slight rounding errors in certain cases when reading color settings from Preferences.
  • Preferences window now supports import of ".itermcolors" files, such as the huge list of color schemes. From the Preferences window, you can click-and-hold the "+" button and select "Import from File...", then choose as many files as you want to import. MacTerm translates most colors directly, with a few exceptions: the text selection colors are used as blink colors, the background color is reused for bold background and matte, and the cursor text color is ignored. The name of the Format collection is derived from the file name (minus any path or extension), and any existing collection with the same name is automatically updated by future imports.
  • Import of ".itermcolors" files can also be performed by dragging one or more files to the MacTerm dock icon.
  • Import of ".itermcolors" files can also be performed by using a Finder contextual menu to "Open With" MacTerm.
