User Reviews for Blink Shell, Build & Code

Where is classic?

Was told that existing users would be able to use this app for regular ssh. But there are only subscription options and the like to restore purchases does nothing. If you’re not going to support existing customers in the new app, maybe consider to put the proper icon back on the old app?Update: Thank you for your response, if I had known about the changes, I would certainly have “taken the time”. I will look for the option to restore the icon and hope that the app contributes to function in future.

Blink has changed my workflow

I started using Blink when I replaced my Macbook with an iPad Pro. Two+ years in and I'm convinced this is one of the better decisions I've made, primarily thanks to this great app. I can do everything I need to do with Blink and a remote server. The devs are responsive, the app is continually updated with new features, and the community is great.If you live in the terminal, or want to, you owe it to yourself to try this app. It's the only app I use for hours every single day.

Subscriptions are an unsustainable leech to consumers. App is good.

I’ll preface this review by saying I hate subscriptions. I will never rent software. The bulk of this review concerns the new subscription model, so feel free to skip it if your feelings differ. I saw a developer response to a review indicate that the new subscription model exists to pay for new features that incur a server cost. That’s fine and understandable. However, requiring all users to pay these fees even if they have no intention of using these new features is pretty gross. Ideally you would only pay the rental fee if you were actually using the service. It’s nice that they allow existing users to continue using the base application nag free. I’ll give a star for that. The application itself is good. If I weren’t grandfathered in, however, I would look elsewhere. It’s not sustainable as an average consumer to rent every piece of software we use in perpetuity.

Seamless upgrade

I saw a new iteration of the app with a new purchase model and was worried I’d have to shop for something new. But the $0 purchase honoring the past version, plus the seamless data migration, immediately put me at ease. I’ll look at what the local features are someday, but for now I can just keep on keeping on.

Not what is promised

I fail to see the value provided compared to the cost. The VSCode feature is extremely buggy (even down to issues with scrolling). In fact, code-server in a browser works better, even if it shares a few of the issues. I would have been willing to pay if it worked, but it leaves only the ssh/mosh features, which are largely for free elsewhere.**Update: The ssh/mosh experience is more responsive than other apps I have tried. That’s something at least

Thank you for doing the transition to the new app correctly! Excellent app and excellent work

Perfect and Simple

A perfect app for those looking for a simple tool to SSH or Mosh into servers. And even more useful with the built in additional commands that can help with troubleshooting and gathering information (ping, Whois, etc). I haven’t yet had a chance to play to much with the VSCode functionality, but that looks equally impressive.

As robust as it is revolutionary for iPad Pro workflows

Single-handedly brings the power of the iPad Pro to Software/Cloud engineering workflows unlocking both the future of portable operations/development and thinclient-style remote access. Not to be stated lightly: better than iTerm2. 5-stars from an SRE going on 2 years using the iPad Pro both as my primary workstation and access terminal.

Best SSH app by far, maybe best iOS app overall

I’ve been using this on a daily basis for the last 5 years. It is by far the best SSH client on iOS, and one of the very best iOS apps overall. They continuously push features that go beyond what I thought was even possible on iOS. Rock solid! (and more than worth the price)

Great app keeps getting better

I’ve been using Blink for a few years now on two different iPads. The price is well worth it for many reasons. Top reasons are things like turning on geo tracking to keep your ssh sessions active where you can’t use mosh, great ssh key management, and super-fast rendering of the terminals. There are others, but this is a good start.The v15 update is really great. Adding in VSCode integration is wicked cool, and works really well.To top it all off, the support from the developer is top-notch. I had an issue, submitted a github issue, and had a response within minutes (it was user error…). And just scouring the GitHub issue tracker, and seeing the activity from the development crew, is very reassuring.Bottom line: I’ve tried a few different terminal apps with decent success. Once I purchased Blink, I uninstalled the other ones. It does everything I want, does it well, and probably does more than I use. Great app, great support.
