A brand-new app, with great new features, Prompt 2 gets the job done.
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.

Stopped working with iOS 11.4.1 Sent support an email, no response.
Why does this not run in the background and keep my sessions open?
The hide keyboard is now gone for iPhone SE! Very hard to see screen!
Very shady for a sensitive security app to be making unsolicited third party connections. It should only be reaching out to servers I explicitly connect to. Developer doesn’t seem to be privacy minded. Edit: You can say that you care about privacy but as long as your app is making connections that I did not initiate, it means very little. First, it should be opt-in, not opt-out, because by the time the user navigates to the option to opt out, it has already sent some information out to third parties. Second, even with the setting toggled to opt out, it’s still opening random connections, so this setting is insufficient anyway. Earlier versions never did this.
I have no interest in signing up for Yet Another Sync Service™. In particular, I have no interest in sending my SSH keys to a very minor sync service run as an app adjunct by a small app company. Great terminal emulator, but come on guys.

Really needs a virtual PC QWERTY keyboard with arrow keys. Using the iPad or iPhone keyboard with this app is very cumbersome. Missing a back slanting ‘ key which would come in very handy for Shell scripts, etc. also would be useful to support cut and paste, and even split screens. All that said it is very useful in a pinch if I wake up in the middle of the night and want to check my server job status without having to get out of bed :)
Every time I open this app, it asks for feedback. What the ???
