SSH Apps for iPhone

Just before the iPhone/iPod Touch 2.0 update, I restored my iPod Touch
after having had it jailbroken for a few months. One of the immediate
things I missed was the SSH client. Then I learned that recently, a few
SSH clients had popped up in the App Store, which pleased me to no end,
especially once I discovered the best one to use.

Thanks to Mr. Cooper, who had already done the research, I downloaded
Touch Term, which is a pretty slick little SSH application. There are
certainly a few things lacking, which is explained in this nice article about all the available
SSH apps
, but it certainly gets the job done.

And really, this was about the only reason I still considered
jailbreaking my 2.0 iTouch. Now, however, I don’t think I need to.
