Android Question

What do you use the Android Terminal Emulator for?

Why is there a terminal emulator in the Android App Market?

Answer Source

So you can get direct access to the commandline?

Android is based on Linux, so it's essentially the Linux commandline you'd be accessing here

If you don't know the Linux commandline:

http://linuxcommand.org/learning_the_shell.php

Please note that it'll be a somewhat limited environment - you might need to root your phone to get access to everything, also some commands won't be available, you probably want to install something like Busybox to get a more featureful environment.
