I was a bit hesitant to purchase RLM as I was fairly sold on Macaw, but after comparing the two and discussing the pros and cons of both, I broke and went with RLM. In the first few hours I owned it it helped me finish and launch a project I had been working on. I was struggling with breakpoints and getting my menus to work properly on a mobile device -- RLM made is super easy and the support I received from CoffeeCup has been (as Davermont mentioned) quick and friendly.

The main reason I went with RLM is because of its Grid System as opposed to Macaw's Grid Guideline's. I can only see the Grid System improving with future releases. CoffeeCup has a good article on the difference here: http://www.coffeecup.com/help/articles/grid-systems-and-frameworks/

All said, I'll still be using my other tools (Coda, CodeKit, and Sublime Text) as RLM can't do everything. But, I like what it can do and its helping me getting done a lot faster.

I highly recommend giving it a try.

sorry for the typo... I meant "get things done a lot faster". :)

I've only been using it a few hours now, but until now it's been a challenge to create a responsive web site. There are a lot of style changes at each resize break point, which has meant scrolling around the style sheet and making sure the right values are entered in the right places. Then it's back to the web browser to verify that the changes worked, then back to the style sheet to tweak the next group of values.

RLM puts everything in a single window, so you can change values on the right and immediately see the effect on the layout. This makes it a whole lot easier to wrap my head around a responsive layout. Out of the box it's already aware of the grid, I can specify my own classes and ids for elements, and again the feedback is immediate. Looking great so far!

After using RLM a couple weeks now I am really liking how it works, and what a pleasure it is to use. It's well worth the $99 intro price (I'm not sure why MacUpdate isn't showing that price).

One thing that the description and the CoffeeCup Software site don't make clear is that this software doesn't create or maintain web sites, RML is a visual designer that creates responsive template files which you then populate with your content to create the actual web pages. So it's great for quickly wireframing and prototyping responsive page layouts, with the advantage that you can then use the layouts it creates to make your web pages rather than having to start over and code the html and css from scratch.

This is different from the more traditional work flow where a design is created in Photoshop, then web pages are created from that design. The traditional flow doesn't work so well with responsive layouts, as you need to create multiple documents to handle the various screen widths. Then there's the matter of keeping track of the various css classes and how they respond to the different widths. A live tool like RLM makes it so much easier to create the layouts and try them out as you develop them. And I will gladly let it keep track of the myriad css details that make good responsive design so challenging to create.
