About Prompt

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.


  • 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.
