On-topic, here's a couple of other possibilities that build on the functionality of ISE
I'm currently experimenting with ASE (Admin Script Editor) - this was previously a commercial product for Powershell, the scripting host and KixStart that is now being provided free by the developers. Pretty useful, but the lack of a defined future (or potentially any future) for the product is slightly discouraging.
I haven't done so yet, but Powershell Plus from Idera is on my list of free IDEs to look at, as is Powershell Analyser
Others have mentioned products from Sapien and some interesting sounding FOSS consoles, so I'll leave it at that.
