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.
