Only Free Terminal with Emoji Support

Although there is no way anyone would ever put up with this free terminal (having to buy the Pro version) because of the most annoying ad usage I have ever seen, it is the best of the free terminals because it is the only one that supports proxy AND Unicode (Emojis). Still, the layout is very clunky compared to Prompt 2 and key management not as intuitive.

I have been coding from the terminal since '97 and have been evaluating iPad terminal solutions for our conversion to iPad "workstations" for all students to do terminal-based development (Python, Bash, Web, VIM). Many of our exercises are more entertaining for the young (students 8 to 18) when they can use Emojis in their terminal programs.

Great free app! Gets the job done!

All the alternatives to this app require payment. I use this app to occasionally ssh into my AWS server and check a file using ‘cat.’ iTerminal does this seamlessly. It could be a little prettier and maybe allow me to download a file from the server to the Files app on my local iPhone, but it’s not a premium app. Very much satisfied with the current state of the app. No free alternatives like it.

Great little terminal

After trying several iOS terminals this one is the best, simple user interface and fun to use. I'm just using telenet so can't rate the other protocols but I will say that this is far better than the competition.
