  1. Missing key

    Hi,

    I couldn't find any way of reproducing the superscript small "2" character, that I happen to use as gnu screen command key, instead of the default Ctrl-a. Is there a chance that you add that character in the list of available customizable characters?

    Thanks,
    Kind regards

  2. Localhost connection fails.

    Does this app actively stops connections to the device its ran on?

    I can connect using the app on other devices but when I try localhost or 127.0.0.1 it says failure....

  4. Editing python

    Hello I connect to my school with server auditor and I want to be able to run the files I have there with an editor so I can work on my projects through the app. I am using pluma in school for editing my python programs but here unsurprisingly it doesn't open pluma

  5. xterm-256color terminal?

    Is it possible to get a 256 color terminal working now and if not I would love for that to be implemented so that we could use full color terminal for Vim or the like. I love this app but have to use a different one when I want to use Vim!

  6. Plain text viewer

    Sometimes I need to see only log files and it's difficult to use command line text editors. Viewing text only files will be a great feature!

  7. TouchID support

    Since we can lock the app with a pin code, we should also be able to use the new TouchID feature in iOS 8. This app would be perfect if I could use my finger to secure my host connections.

  8. How do I forcibly close the session?

    On iPad running 7.1.2 I had trouble figuring out how to close a connected but hung session.

    The problem was that the particular host didn't offer UNIX shell (only menu access) and it got flooded by the script injected by the "Recognize OS" feature. With some taps I managed to get to the main menu but I don't remember how I did it :)

  10. Choose encoding

    Would it be possible to add an option to select the terminal encoding (in my case ISO-8859-1, but UTF-8 etc. would be useful too)? Many thanks in advance!

  11. Ability to execute command on connect

    For example, this would make starting IRC or similar tools much simpler.

  12. URL detection and tap to open in browser

    I switched from iSSH because it got so buggy. Loving this client so far, but I miss the ability to tap on an http/https URL in an IRC session and have it open in Safari!

  13. No Keyboard?

    The terminal won't accept input from my external keyboard. The app will let me use my keyboard to enter the server details to login, but the terminal itself ignores any keyboard input. Also, the keyboard at the bottom of the screen will not appear. At first I thought this was because I had the external keyboard attached, but the screen keyboard won't appear even if the Bluetooth is turned off. Therefore I have no way to enter text into the terminal, making this app unusable. Can you please help?

  15. keymap compatibility

    In some shells the backspace key isn't working, it sends something different from ^h. For example tcsh.

    Similar issues exist with the delete key.

    Most terminal emulators have a setting to toggle between modes.

  18. Faster scrolling speed.

    Not sure what this is called... Scrolling speed or frame buffer. When the text is flying by, I'd like it to to be faster, so I don't have to wait for the graphics to catch up with the process.

  19. Keyboard clicks.

    The keyboard click sounds of the top row don't obey the system settings. My keyboard is silent except for the top row. (The additional keys).
