The software itself (Cocoa Packet Analyzer) is almost perfect, but not the App Store version of it. You should just go the developer's website and download the non-AppStore version of this software (Google/Bing it), since the App Store version is missing the key feature of the application, i.e. the ability to "capture" network traffic for analyzing it, while the non-AppStore version has it.
What is even the point of this application without its key feature?
