      Awesome Sauce

      I am a sound/video technician and decided I wanted to figure out a way to control the shutter option on my Eiki LC-X6 projector with the click of a GO button from another program called Qlab. I purchased a USB Serial adapter cable and installed the driver for it. I had unsuccessfully tried a freeware program before finding Serial. Luckily, I found Serial while doing some research. I gave it a try and it instantly recognized my adapter and notified me that the driver I had installed was going to be a problem. Serial advised me to remove the driver, which I did. After that, Serial worked like a charm. I was then able to write an AppleScript (my first!) to automate RS-232 commands to Serial for shutter control and execute them from Qlab. It was totally worth the $30 as it has made my life easier. I advise taking advantage of the 7 day free trial to see if it works for you. It took me less than a day to decide as it was working so well. I’m so grateful to Decisive Tactics for creating this program as it has inspired me to do more with programming. Thanks guys!

      Great app if you use serial consoles at all, one little flaw...

      I love this app, works with all serial adapters I’ve tried, great UI, doesn’t leave sessions open that I forget to close, etc One bug I found was that it crashes loginwindow when used in conjuctiion with Remote Desktop and the built-in serial port on an Xserve. And then when I try to force quit Serial, it becomes a zombie process. I send HUP to loginwindow, and it doesn’t come back, so I have to power cycle the Xserve out-of-band. It’s considered vintage so no longer supported, but it runs Yosemite, and it is a bug, though it might not affect many people. So I have to use screen for using the serial port on the Xserve, but other than that, it is a great app, well worth its price. I’d love to be able to use it with the Xserve serial port though.

      Pricey, but very helpful

      I'm working on a bunch of home automation gadgets building off of ESP32s and D1s Minis. There are great open source solutions, but they're all a little behind moving to USB-to-serial bridges that are compatible with the latest Windows security-related changes. I rationalized the cost for my use case, but YMMV. It's nice having an app from the App Store so that I know it will stay compatible with the latest Windows OS security changes. That's been my challenge with the open source stuff, and was happy to support this app in order to save me that time. It also got me back online for my ESP32 work on Big Sur, which made my weekend.

      Simply the best serial terminal available for PC

      I routinely access networking gear using serial terminal connections. I struggled with several programs before coming across Serial a few years ago. I was hesitant to try it because it is expensive and there is no demo. Eventually, I took the risk and I ham glad that I did. Every USB to serial adapter I have tried has been natively supported by the program. It even worked flawlessly with my AirConsole WiFi/Bluetooth serial adapter. I couldn't recommend this program more. If you are hesitant like I was, take the chance. You'll be glad that you did.

      Exactly what you need

      I am a network engineer, and electronics hobbyist on the side. This does exactly what you need it to do, and not much more (which is a breath of fresh air.) It's just an app you can count on when you need to access a device via a serial connection. Drivers included for popular chipsets and Bluetooth. I never have to worry about whether my USB adapter is supported, I just plug it in, launch the app, do what I need to do, and get on with my life. It's absolutely perfect - don't change a thing.
