The latest version is actually 1.3 where they have implemented syncing. However, this was done clumsily w/o the ability to easily disable it, or get around it.
The ratings for this app fell from stellar to dismal with the release of 1.3, and now someone has erased all the negative comments at the app store. I suspect they got the message and are trying to fix it.
Not sure if it's even possible to get 1.2 anymore; luckily I still had it on another computer and replaced 1.3 with 1.2 on this one. Be sure to save your 1.2 someplace if you have it before trying 1.3.
A free download from the Mac AppStore. If you need to type something quickly I guess it's okay, but it is very basic, bare app. You can't change the color of the background, there's no formatting, and there isn't isn't even a Preferences!
