App Description

Introducing Prompt: the best SSH client for your iPad or iPhone.

Prompt is clean, crisp, and cheerful: the SSH and Telnet client that 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 firewalls!"), or any person who needs to connect to a server and type some magic.

WHAT MAKES IT GOOD?

• NEW IN 1.5! Telnet
   The original protocol, now available in Prompt.

• NEW IN 1.5! Agent Forwarding
   Even easier secure connections to your servers.

• Universal: iPad and iPhone
   One app, two platforms, one price.

• Effortless Favorites
   You connect to servers, Prompt remembers them. That's it.

• Customizable Keys
   Set your most-used special characters and speed-boost your typing.

• Bluetooth Keyboards
   They work just great, even most special keys.

• Autocomplete
   Your most used commands are remembered, automatically.

• Key Pair Support
   Load a DSA or RSA keyfile into Prompt for password-free login.

   All the ^G's and whistles you'll need to get work done.

PROMPT IS A PANIC JAM.
