While I like small special-purpose programs (because I write them myself, hehe), this is a bit crazy. What this $15 app does can easily be handled with a text editor like TextWrangler for example, which is free (and as a nice extra you get a very powerful text editor). Anybody who shells out $15 for this is either too rich or too stupid. Sorry.

This utility is indeed helpful and saves me quite a bit of time each week. I use it to cleans up text I copy from email messages and before pasting it into a custom database. I don't know why others seems to have such scorn for this little utility and the developer. It does what it claims, and in the one instance when there was a probelm, the developer responded overnight with an update. Consider me more than pleased.

The reason is that their are so many other ways to do this for no additional cost in most of the current word processors and that their are free tools available, easily installed that can do this as well. All it takes is a slight amount of research or a few minutes to learn how. What this utility really seems to be doing is validating the W.C, Fields quote of "It's immoral to allow a sucker to keep his money." However for your specific need, if this work for you and you have plenty of disposable funds, go for it. As such others should not continue to have an issue with other users purchasing this product as given the number of comments that are in place about this product, others should not now be criticized for making their own informed decisions . Given the likelihood that there are probably a quite limited number of purchasers of this product and the inherent simplicity of it, it does not seem surprising that you have received excellent support. I would suspect that if this is the developers only product, and has no other major commitments, that this person has a lot of free time on their hands.

This app is only .99 on the app store, not sure why the price is locked at $15 here. This may be a simple program, but many people will pay .99 in order to save themselves a little time researching other ways to remove carriage returns. As to Jimw's rude comments, this is not the developer's only app. He has several very nice looking apps. You would know that if you went to his page, which would have taken less time than your rude false assumptions.

I hate to dogpile on you here, developer, but... Who am I kidding? No I don't. The suggestion that anyone would pay $15 for this is an insult to the intelligence of everyone who uses MacUpdate.

I hate to compare, but in this case textSOAP puts this to pasture and is a well developed app with substantially more features for the serious writer.
