Command Line Program is a command line program for iOS.

It is not a shell, but a collection of various commands using the greatest UI of all time: the command-line interface.

Use cases to use commands of Command Line Program come from the need that is right now.
For example:

- Check latest tweets using "tweet" command and tweet latest Astronomy Picture of the Day.
- What is my latitude and longitude right now: use "location" command and there it is.
- Are there cafes nearby: use command "location nearby cafe".
- What is my device's IP address: use "network" command.
- What is the ASCII code of '+': use "ascii" command.
- What was the Astronomy Picture of the Day of Christmas Eve 2012: use "apod" command.
- View latest RSS items of your favourite feeds.
- Get inspiration for the moment from proverbs all over the world.
- And so on and so forth...

Depending on new needs, user wishes or some other trigger, new commands will be implemented.

Over a dozen commands are implemented, including:

-apod, Astronomy Picture of the Day by NASA.

Ratings and Reviews

Neat app, needs landscape mode on iPad

Fire Bear

This app would easily score 4-5 stars, if it had a landscape mode on the iPad, it’s a pain to take it out of the case to use the keyboard.
