And if you have any doubt Reflection will delight, please check out these iTunes reviews from our sister application, Reflection for UNIX, iOS Edition:

Awesome app by Ingelore
“I needed a ssh client while I was traveling. I only had my iPad with me and this app proved to be a helpful tool. It's well made and it works like a charm for me. I was surprised, that it didn't cost some bucks. I would have paid it happily. Great software takes time and passion and shouldn't be expected to be available at not cost.”

I can’t believe its not payware by FuzzballFury
“I needed an SSH client to talk to my Debian server while my laptop was down. Just from the screenshots, I automatically assumed I was getting an ad-ridden piece of trial software until I coughed up some money. I was absolutely shell-shocked when I realized it was free. It fact its so nice, I think I’m going to start using I regularly. Its clear a lot of effort went into this to make it look as excellent as it does.”

Great ssh client by Mr. Gesher
“As a sysadmin, I have high standards for an SSH client. This app is a great implementation, with lots of conveniences functions and a clean interface. Well done!”
