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.

• Panic Sync
Finally. Sync your favorite servers, passwords, private keys, and clips, between Prompt on all of your iOS devices. It’s fast, it’s extremely secure, and best of all, it’s free.

• Clips
Put your most-used commands and text bits into clips and access them with a single tap via Prompt’s keyboard bar. Clips can be stored globally or per-server.

Customer Reviews

Love this

Since Coda is the #1 go to app in my toolkit it's no surprise I love Prompt also. Two stellar Pro apps. Prompt doesn't stand out quite as much from the field as Coda does, but it's definitely a solid SSH client and worth the money.

Since disconnecting seems to be an inevitable part of iPad ssh client life, I'd love to see some support for persistent connections with integration with screen or something similar.

Good but have space to improve

Prompt 2 might be the best SSH console on App Store. It resolves many tiny issues with other alternatives that will bother you a lot.

But it still have some defects. I bought Prompt 2 because it claims to support third party keyboard, but it turns out you can only use a soft keyboard. I mean, if you'd like to input something with you physical keyboard as well as a third party input method, you will be definitely disappointed.

Indispensable and a shining example of UX

This app is incredibly useful sure. What never ceases to amaze me is the level of detail had been paid in its design. It is a shining example of excellent UX in a very difficult app. Who would have thought it would actually be comfortable to shell in and do work on a tiny iPhone screen. Amazing work Panic!
