Hi, I download the app but when I try to open it, it shows "“CoolTerm.app” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. Did I miss something in the installation?

Very clean, nice app. One thing I cannot get to work: xmodem a text file to a Pico running PicoMite, an MMBasic interpreter (PicoScope project in MAKE vol.87). CoolTerm easily connects to usbmodem1423301 (9800, 8, N, 1 no flow), gets the PicoMite prompt > , apparently transmits the PicoMite command xmodem receive, responding with a new line and a couple of dots, then waiting for a file, which seems to transmit over several seconds, all 13K bytes. Everything looks OK but then: Error: Remote did not respond. I assume the problem is with PicoMite whose docs say xmodem file transmission was tested only with TeraTerm under Windows. I can transmit the PicoMite.bas file to the Pico board using Windows 11 Home running on my iMac under Parallels 19 so I have completed the project. I'm assuming that MMBasic is not returning something which CoolTerm needs.

I'd just like to say thanks for making this App free. I deperately need to monitor two USB comm ports simultaneously; allowing me to interact with two separate MCU devices at the same time whilst they communicate via I2C in the background. In fact they seem to be having some trouble; so I need to view the debug on both at the same time to see whats going on.

Great app, thanks for making this available for free. I work a lot with embedded hardware and this is perfect for that. The hex view is especially useful. Thanks.

Not only is it LION compatible, but the ability to control it with applescript is great. A big improvement over my old terminal program.

This looks like a great alternative to DockLight on Windows. I look forward to trying it out. Maybe I will find myself with even fewer reasons to dual-boot my Mac.

This is an excellent piece of software that let my Mac keep in touch with my older equipment better than Terminal did.

Great app. After finding out that Zterm did not work with Snow Leopard and my USB to Serial adapter, I found out about CoolTerm... I use it to configure Cisco devices, and so far it's been working great. The only problem I found was that I can't recall previous entered commands by pressing the up arrow key. If this feature was added, then I'd give it 5 stars.

Great little app. Does what it says and useful for those who need this sort of thing. There are still lots of pure serial devices out there, and so for Mac types to try prototyping things this is a great help.
