Following up again on the progress of this app. I'll say its very advanced compared to its more humble beginnings.

Dragging files into a window reveals its path, color schemes are somewhat supported, and the speed and stability of the app are right where they should be.

What is needed now? Well perhaps nothing is needed per say but a nice to have would be a way to close a particular pane without having to lose the whole window. Also I would like my preferred view to be savable as my color scheme is. The ability to alter my current layout of panes would be more important when making changes. Excellent application. I'm ready to pay.

I'm curious about what iConsole has that convinces you to pay vs free (cost/license/source) iTerm2 and/or free (cost) Terminal.app?

Great beta! Since this app is under active development, I'd like to propose a feature request.

View -> Desktop Mode

It would be similar to fullscreen mode, but the menu bar would remain visible and the app windows would be "locked" in between the desktop background and the desktop icons. Make the app windows "sticky" (don't expose) so that a quick expose command would reveal a "fullscreen" terminal.

This would make the terminal feel more "integrated." It would always be in the same place and would be easily accessible.

I'd pay for this feature. Anyone else?

Bonus points for:
* Multiple desktops
* More transparency options
* Option to hide desktop icons

Keep up the good work!

Off to a good start, like the multiple pane interface. Although it is missing one feature I use a lot, support for drag-and-drop of items from the Finder to get their path.

Although I have not thoroughly tested the app spending a few minutes with it I am quite impressed at the possibilities it offers.

It's still in beta but as "Frieddylan" below posted; it would be great for monitoring servers or your personal systems with the various window layouts and tab functions.

I would definitely keep an eye on this app and give it a quick download. The resources the app uses are minimal which is very nice to see.

iConsole and the company in charge have a very promising future. I hope one day this app will be scriptable in some way but again it's just the beginning and a very promising beginning at that. Keep up the good work devs!

Very smart application- I really like being able to set up my windows to show, say, TOP and another perhaps watching a log file with the TAIL command, yet another pane with a command prompt. I would like it even more if I could save this custom configuration- it could then be used as a sort of live server status screen. Maybe even the ability to store saved SSH sessions to view (using keychain) so I can view this data remotely with a single app launch.

Oh, a cosmetic addition would be to allow me to use my favorite green type on black background. Or maybe amber type on black.

All in all a decent offering here. Thank you- looking forward to updates.

Just an addition here- the 1.9b version adds the color profile which IS persistent. Very nice looking. Still no stability issues found thus far.
