Great for connection to I-series

Just tried this Lite version. Pretty consistent with IBMs Client Access and HOD emulations

Lite version only has some function keys enabled. I could not use our work system well without the F12 enabled

Overall has that 60s look and feel to it as you expect with anyone emulating a I-series system

The cost for the full version seems a little steep. I would only use my iPad or iphone for emergency access only

LITE is not quite...

This version is fully functional but if you can work your iSeries (AS/400, Power server with IBM i, whatever you want to call it) without Attn, page up and page down then this is all you need. Other folks will need the paid version (or, possibly, an external keyboard but the app is cheaper!)
The quality and ease of use of this app have convinced me that Mochasoft know 5250 though so the paid app is a lot less of a gamble. Job done?
