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.

Near perfect app with some quirks
This app works as advertised. It has some quirks I don't like but seems to be the best is show for now. I'm able to sync certificates for serious authentication.
My only gripe is the inability to copy and paste commands from other apps.
this app is perfect to connect to a unix system, but is missing a back-quote key. There does appear to be an easy work-around. It would be easy to add a back-quote key among the "customizable keys" or the fcn keys, so I am surprised they have not done it yet.
Prompt is a slick, nicely configurable SSH client. Its UI could use some love, but it does what it needs to.
