Cura is a mobile phone application bundle of remote server administration tools. It provides a personalized terminal emulator, a syslog module that allows for reading logs directly from a server, a SysMonitor module that visually graphs CPU and RAM usage percentages, access to Nmap, and Server Stats will offer general server information like its Vitals, Hardware information, Memory information, processes, and so on. A security feature allows you to have Cura's database wiped when you send the compromised phone a secret pattern of your choosing. (e.g. send an SMS message containing "phone has been stolen!" to your Android phone to wipe Cura's database and receive the location of the compromised phone as an SMS to your emergency phone number or as an e-mail to your emergency email address).

Release Notes: The modules screen is now Tabular, providing a much better user experience in which all of Cura's modules are provided as tabs on the top of the screen.
Release Notes: This release features a completely new UI for the Home (Login) screen where you are dropped upon launch. This is where you access/create/update/delete your server accounts, and it's had a complete do-over.
Release Notes: This release implements push notifications. While the user is still logged into the server, and after having chosen the refresh interval from the Settings screen, the user will be notified whenever a new user logs into that server.
Release Notes: This release offers a "Kill Process" option offered in the last section of the Server Stats module (allows you to kill any of the processes that are usually seen in the last section of Server Stats). There is an About page.
Release Notes: This release satisfies all the the tasks promised: terminal, syslog reader, SysMonitor (for CPU and RAM), Nmap, and server stats. In addition, there's the security feature (an SMS can wipe Cura's database (the phone's location is sent back)). It works for Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) and above.
