Description of App
THE EASY, POWERFUL, AND BEAUTIFUL SSH CLIENT.
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.

Setting up a server to connect to was very easy and text output from the terminal area is automatically spoken when it is displayed. One can flick right for each line of text on screen when you want to review existing output. I had a hard time working with full screen applications like vim or vi editors but I could review displayed text. VO did not pronounce changes in text when arrowing around in those full screen editing environments. I found VO to work quite well with Prompt when it came to strait command line interacting and echoed output.
