Secure ShellFish is a popular iOS app that allows users to access SSH and SFTP servers from their iPhone or iPad. After the release of macOS Ventura last month, developer Anders Borum has now released a version of Secure ShellFish for Mac users, bringing more features, including cross-device capabilities, to its users.
The application offers a native terminal for improved accessibility, performance, and text selection. It also comes with shortcut automation, an option to mark directories for offline use, support for two-factor authentication, and the ability to run Digital Ocean drops from the app.
As noted by the developer, the macOS app is very similar to the iOS app. Of course, the Mac version integrates with the Finder to show the contents of the servers, while the iOS app integrates with the Files app. And on a Mac, users can upload files directly from the Services menu instead of having to use the operating system’s share sheet.
Finally, Secure ShellFish is available on Macs providing seamless access to your SSH servers to your most used computer. Server files are available in Finder’s ShellFish site and are available as part of the file system anywhere on your Mac. Top notch tmux support is especially useful on Macs. Never worry about losing network connection and handover sessions between iPhone, iPad and Mac. It feels like magic.
Now that the app is available for both iOS devices and Macs, Secure ShellFish users can take advantage of the features across devices. This includes Handoff for switching between devices and iCloud Keychain support for securely syncing server settings in the cloud. In addition to that, the app also comes with a widget and picture-in-picture mode.
