Very primitive for $10

It's a promising application but there's quite a few issues with it that make it a pain to use:

1. To send OSC messages, you need to set up a connection first. The dialog to do it doesn't allow for DNS names, only IPs.

2. You can name clients and servers but in the config but the list of clients and servers doesn't use the name.

3. You can specify multiple clients but you can't select which one you send data to. Apparently it's to all of them which is indicated by duplicate OUT logs. But the logs don't specify which output they refer to.

4. The ability to send messages isn't a "chat". It's a command terminal. It should support basic recall of previously invoked commands by cursor-up and cursor-down to quickly change values of what you previously sent. Now you have to copy and paste.

5. To add insult to injury, you cannot select text in the log screen so you cannot copy what you already sent to paste it to send again.
