Panic has released their new 2.5 update for Prompt, the popular SSH application for iOS. Introducing split-screen views on the iPad and 3D Touch on the latest iPhones, this brings Prompt to the forefront with the latest features available in iOS 9.
The SSH application enables web developers and anyone who needs terminal-based access to easily do so on mobile. Prompt runs on iPhones and iPads alike. Today’s update also supports better layouts for the iPhone 6 Plus in landscape mode. Another handy feature introduced today is the ability to maintain multiple connections to a server while utilizing tabs to navigate between the open sessions.
