    Nice, but it can’t do ssh. For this to be useful to me, I need it to be able to ssh into one of my Linux servers.

      I agree overall but this is still a fun app to use and experiment with, and gives you an idea of how powerful the potential is.

      But I agree, to be ultra useful this needs ssh, nano, emacs, vim, git, top, and some other common unix utilities. Then it would really shine.

      There are a few ssh apps for iPad though, like Prompt, Termius, and Shelly. Check them out.

    If you need ssh, there is Blinkshell. For the editor, there is iVim. For git, WorkingCopy.

    One of the forks of Blinkshell combines the commands of Terminal and the SSH ability of Blink: https://github.com/holzschu/blink
    It’s not on the AppStore, though.

    Hi and good day,

    As is one can’t run those commands, such as ls … because the PATH is not set for ~/Documents .

    So the dummies among us need some more advice.

    I have 5 ubuntu machines that I regularly access with my Ipad, and found SHELLY to be an invaluable tool!

    It looks like Apple pulled it from the iTunes Store. =(

    I don’t get it, what do I put in so I can go in the terminal? The article fails to clarify how to actually use this app.

      You download the app and you open it, that’s how you use the app. Have you ever used an app before, Ace?

    An alternative is devAny(https://www.devany.net) which is the interface of unix backend. You need to set up backend processes but you can work with bluetooth keyboard.
