In our State of the Union blog post, I mentioned that we’ve been working on some iOS proof of concept / research projects here in the Panic Office. It’s been a lot of fun for us.
In fact, we liked one of those projects so much internally, we just promoted it to “real thing”!
Hands up! Who wants a nice, clean SSH terminal client for the iPad and iPhone?
(Hopefully a couple of hands went up.) Prompt is a clean, crisp, and cheerful SSH client: it helps you when you need it, and stays out of your way when you don’t. Perfect for system administrators, web developers, movie-style hackers (“Let me just TCP/IP into the UNIX port!”), or any person who needs to connect remotely and type some magic.
Prompt also has a lot of seriously helpful features, including effortless favorites, customizable special keys, autocomplete, keyfile support, Bluetooth keyboards including special keys, password lock, Bonjour server detection, and more.
Prompt is also universal: it looks and works great on your iPhone, your iPad, and even your iPod Touch (or, as your Mom calls it, your iTouch.)
Prompt is only $7.99, available now in the App Store.
We hope you enjoy this nice little experiment — technically our first for iOS! — and we hope it makes your terminal hacking very pleasant.
