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.

i bought it based on recommendations and also because it is (was?) a very useful app not only for music but to control anything, including robotics, like DIY Arduino projects and that's the main reason why i wanted it. but after installation... i get a notification that it is not fully compatible with my newer version of Android 9. so, here goes another buyer. refund processing. i hope the developers work on it to keep it fully updated and compatible with the latest Androids.
