Three free android apps to remotely monitor and administer Linux servers

I have been running a Linux (Ubuntu) server for almost 3 years now. When I learned the power of SSH, I was thrilled to be able to work on my server remotely. With smartphones came apps to remotely control ubuntu server. Recently, I published a post that described three free apps to monitor and administer WordPress, Google AdSense, and Google Analytics. Continuing along the same lines, I have researched and found several free android apps that enable remotely monitoring and administering a Ubuntu (or any Linux) server. Listed below are a brief descriptions of the apps and what they can do.
