works great w/ large feature set. ive read other's reviews on here and I think they are confused. i use it just fine with IPv4 when connected over wifi or ethernet (with ethernet usb dongle). If you understand the basics od OSC you shouldnt have any problems with using this app. I highly recommend it, its been around for a long time, and it has always been stable.

No matter what I do, I am unable to get TouchOSC to connect to my network. It is a closed network with static IPs for each device, and I am able to connect between any of my other devices, but TouchOSC just will not send anything to my PC. The IP address shown in the App is a type, while the rest of my devices are 192.168.0.* Any help would be appreciated.

It is a nice and useful app, but it desperately needs a more user friendly and up-to-date UI. It keeps flipping between portait, landscape, seascape orientation. The file picker to locate layouts is too basic (e.g., no SD card access, no cloud) which makes transfer of layouts from PC to tablet a pain. It doesn't act on files with touchosc extension, etc..
