Thanks for the clarification. As it stands mosh is being added as a 
supplemental purchase inside of iSSH. This is generally due to licensing 
and legal costs. As such, the purchase is for "Mosh compatibility." 
Where mosh is activated it's simply a switch on an otherwise iSSH 
standard terminal connection. Again, I'd be very willing to either give 
you a demonstration or send you a beta copy if you happen to have an iOS 

I've stayed pretty active with the development of iSSH over the last 
four years and don't have any intention of slowing down. I fully intend 
to keep pace with augmented features of mosh so long as they're 
documented well enough I can replicate them.
