How can we improve the iOS client?

Add back tick key

The tmux config on all the servers I connect to use the backtick (inverted comma) for keyboard shortcuts. It would be very useful if this were added to the keyboard.

        You shouln't use backticks anymore, always use $(). $() is the POSIX standard for command substitution. There are many situations in which using backticks to perform command substitution will result in security related bugs. Additionally, using backticks within nested substitutions requires escaping and leads to more bugs.

        There is actually, but it's a little buried.
        Tap ".?123" to access the numeric and punctuation keyboard.
        Tap and hold the "'" (apostrophe) key.
        Three options pop up including the needed "`" back tick.

        Remember, you can also use $(command_you_need) construct in addition to the `back_tick_command` construct.

        Yes please, add the back tick so you can do things like PWD=`pwd`; echo $PWD
        I will then get the PRO version and put down the money for it.
