iSSH is a front-end application to the command line application "ssh". It provides a quick and easy way to start an SSH connection to a remote computer. You may be asking, "What's the point of running SSH without an interactive command prompt (Terminal)?" Well, running SSH in the background will not supply a prompt, but, it will forward ports. This is the main purpose of iSSH. You can set two options with iSSH; which ports to forward to the remote computer, or, to start an SSH SOCKS proxy. The first could be used to forward a VNC connection over SSH and the latter could be used to bypass your work's website filters! Either way, it provides a simple way to start an SSH connection for those who are afraid of the Terminal or just don't need it.
