This app is one hell of a non-starter. First, it requires XQuartz. Second, it uses an applet to launch itself. Third, the applet isn't signed with a developer certificate, so it won't launch under normal Gate Keeper settings.

I have been using BBEdit since around 1997, but switched to TextMate 4 years ago. I tried BBEdit out again for my workflow for an entire day, and sadly, things did not go very well. The only thing I can see using it for over TextMate is for opening and fixing large files. But even then, Apple's TextEdit does as good of a job with large files 99% of the time. TextMate will choke if you do a mass replace on a file with like 10k lines. But it offers so much more than BBEdit in terms of extensibility and language support. I have all of these SQL, XML, PHP, and JavaScript tools I use all of the time in TextMate, and it just feels like BBEdit is more singly focused on general text and HTML stuff. It also still feels old and Carbon in some areas. I'll keep BBEdit around as a tool in the toolbox still, but I just don't see how I can possibly use it for everyday use. I do like the improved project window, but again, I have a similar setup in TextMate.

I saw a review of this app for the iPad and thought it was pretty sweet - I am glad to see a Mac version finally, because honestly I do more photo editing on the Mac than on the iPad. I found the built in template settings to be great. Making adjustments to the images and borders and textures was fast and easy, and unlike the iPad version, you can see in real time the changes as you tweak the sliders. For the price, I think that this is a nice app to create some fun photos!

I find the UI here a bit thin - it is a weird combination of web page + iTunes + iPad like functionality - less features and polish than I expect from a Mac app. There are no Preferences, so if you download an app, it always is added to the Dock - that is annoying. Maybe the UI will make more sense once it is running on 10.7 Lion. I also wonder how updates to apps I already have installed will work - how does it know if I have a paid version installed or a demo version? Will it auto-update an app that I have installed, but wasn't purchased from the App Store? It currently shows apps that I have paid for as "Installed" - I guess I will have to wait until an update for one of them comes out to see what happens. Overall, the experience is pretty confusing with lots of unknowns still.
