As far as normal standards go, I'd say ION is an amazing shell. It is fast and it's written very well. However, I'd like to put in a small point. People say ION takes only 40 bytes to run. However, ION takes about 2k because it actually uses a hidden program. Although this is still relatively small, the author decided to say in the readme that it only took up 40 bytes (grumble). Putting these (blatant) untruths `aside, I would give this shell a 9/10 for its speed and convenience.

Ion is really easy to use. Just use the program A. Installing was fast and easy and it supports most of the games i use. It has a really easy to use graphical interface for selecting which program you want to use. It may not have many of the features that Mirage OS has to offer but for a beginner it is just what you need.

“Ion” is yet another shell for the TI-83/84 series. It is very simple and easy to use, assuming most people can figure out what the directional buttons and the [Enter] key does. It is relatively tedious to install, as one must go through a series of steps and the final result is a program called “A.” It shouldn't be much of a problem for anyone. Ion has a large file library, so that is a plus, and many of Ion's programs also work for “Mirage OS.” There is one issue about "electronic suicide" however. I ran it, and it cleared my RAM, and since “Ion” was the only thing in my RAM, it basically deleted itself. I have steered clear of it ever since. I would recommend this program for those who have a calculator for games, but not those who worry about the safety of their information.
