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.

3-Pack 10-Ft MFi-Certified Lightning - $16.99

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.
