THE #1 SSH CLIENT FOR iOS — POWERFUL FEATURES, EASY-TO-USE.
Includes Panic Sync, our secure, super sync service — for FREE.
It's classic. You step outside for a few seconds to eat some gyros and the server goes down, or you lie down to do some light reading and a web page needs an emergency typo fix. Maybe your company uses IRC. Maybe you just like to check in on your servers often. Either way, you're the type of person that already uses SSH. Having a quality SSH client in your pocket is a very good idea.
Welcome to Prompt 2. In the three years since Prompt was released and became a favorite of admins, we've been constantly releasing updates, while also taking notes on what significant new features people wished Prompt had. Then, we did almost all of it.
Prompt 2 is, simply put, an excellent SSH and TELNET client. But how can it make SSH tasks easier? Read on.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Easy to use and set up, I have it configured to connect to my Raspberry Pi's using a mix of ssh keys and login prompts. I really like the Clips feature where I can save lines of text to execute repetitive commands without having to type them out.
No issues with vim or nano editors, and I don't get constant pop-ups when the app is backgrounded whilst in a session as mentioned by another review.
I also like how the app can be protected using touchID to save me needing a pass phrase on ssh key pairs.
Had for a few years now brilliant app
Had for a few years now brilliant app. Not tried many others as this one dose the job perfectly. One thing i would like to see though is the ability to change the colour of the terminal text. Other than that this app is a must if you have a server that you might need to administer on the go you should get.
Keeps disconnecting from remote *nix box when in background - nightmare
I lose all my work when this app drops the SSH connection to my *nix box because it is in background. I repeatedly kept losing work (but luckily the Linux ‘screen’ or ‘tmux’ programs could completely prevent the this). The developers simply blamed iOS and offered no resolution. This may well be true, since I know zero about iOS but it is totally inadequate excuse for lack of will to fix a critical problem. I could certainly fix the problem myself, seeing as I am an designer and can immediately see a guaranteed solution. Avoid unless you can work around this killer issue. Waste of time.
