 Does the job
If you need it, you'll be happy to pay for it. The pleasure of finding your device ready to connect upon opening the application without having to mess with drivers is priceless. After that, it just works.  — GGuida

 Finally! An app by someone who understands
Serial apps don't need to be flashy, but this one has 2 killer features that most serial terminal apps totally miss that are a massive convenience for network device programming: 1. An easy way to send serial break 2. paste buffering so that copy/paste into a terminal won't overflow the serial buffer and drop your connection. I've been programming network devices for 20 years and the paste buffer in this app is the first time i have seen this implemented. No more terminal session drops half-way through pasting in configuration directives! No more guessing how much i can paste without dropping my session! 5 stars. If you program equipment via RS232 this app is better than anythign i've used prior on any platform for the specific reasons above.  — throAU
