ControlTower is an application to allow users to manage terminals in Apple's Terminal application. It provides a window with a number of terminals that can be customised by the user and can be launched with just a couple of clicks. Each terminal uses a different colour set to be easily identified and can have automatically launched commands (for example to automatically ssh to a server).
To manage the preferences of the application, or quit it, control-click on the ControlTower text (right click if you have a multi-button mouse) and choose an item from the contextual menu. The preferences allow you to configure the Terminals that are displayed as well as some other options.
DonationsAlthough ControlTower is free, I am not adverse to being showered with riches. You can make a donation (as large or as small as you like) using PayPal by clicking the button below. If you don't have a PayPal account, or can't use PayPal and would like to donate, contact me at the address given in the Read Me.
