Connect to routers, servers, firewalls, industrial control and IoT devices with ease.
See every byte received in raw hex format allowing you to work with devices lacking a text-based interface. A new send panel allows you transmit data in hex format too.

Serial includes built-in, reliable support for almost every serial device on the market, sparing you the hassle of finding, installing, and updating drivers.
I frequently access Cisco equipment, and I used to use ZTerm all the time. But, since it no longer works on modern version of MacOS, I had to find something different. Glad I stumbled across this gem - it's much simpler to use than ZTerm, and I haven't had a single issue. Thanks! — Pale0phyte
Had several USB-serial adapters which no longer had drivers for Catalina. Serial claimed to support pretty much anything and, skeptical, I tried it despite the price. It is absolutely true: you run it, if finds and recognises the arcane adapters your are using and it connects. No kext, no nothing. It just works. Would have never believed it if I had not seen it in action. Worth the money! — w1nt3rs3a
Works great unlike many other apps out there. My only knock is that it doesn't offer a trial or lite version. I was hesitant to buy at first but took a leap of faith and I wasn't disappointed. It's also nice that the developers seem to stay on top of product updates. — spidey527
