Just upgraded to 2.5 and this app goes from strength to strength. There are few things you can't do with this now as it exports to video as well - I'll be doing all my demo videos in here now as well! Currently using it for my own app's website and it's solid, fast and reliable.

Here we go again:

As soon as I start Hype, it attempts to phone home to GOOGLE ANALYTICS ! ! !

NOT acceptable. NOT appreciated. ASK MY PERMISSION FIRST DAMMIT. NO, I do NOT give you permission surveil me. BLOCKED by Little Snitch. Hype that, idiots.

Gotta HATE the FORCED user surveillance that stupid developers foist onto their users just to make an extra buck at their expense. Consider this comment my retribution. USERS BEWARE.

On first launch we load a webpage displaying Getting Started with Hype information, as this is going to be helpful to many users. This page is loaded from our servers, as we may want to change it from time to time. Like every page on our site, it does include an analytics link. By default, this only shows the one single time, and we do not send any other information back to our servers unless you've very explicitly opted-in to "Collect anonymous usage data to improve Hype." I'm a user like anyone else and would want my privacy respected. Please see our privacy policy:

Pricing is going to have to change before I even consider buying it and by “change” is what I might pay for it but I sure won’t shell out 30 bucks for it.

If you live in Mexico, it is cheaper to buy it from the App store from the Hype store. The exchange rate used must be quite different. If you are outside of the USA, check both options before ordering. I'm not a big fan of the App store, but nor do I wish to pay more than I have to.

I believe Hype must be using Apple's dangerous versioning system now or something. I built a website last night and exported it. Worked great. Went to bed and thought of some more ideas. Woke up in the morning, and the Hype file I created was gone. I looked everywhere (and I am very well organized). The "Open Recent" menu showed only one file that was a long string of nonsense. When I opened it, it was a very, very early version, before any of the real hard work! And I do save my files as I work... obsessively. Every time I do even the smallest thing I like, I save the file. So… where is my file? Absolutely, 100% gone along with 8 hours of work. I cannot trust this app any longer.

@ Tumult:
Is there still no EXPORT AS VIDEO option?

If I remember correctly, last year (2012) Tumult wrote, that many users had asked for an export as video option and so I had hoped, that this feature would be available meanwhile, but I can't find it... :(
What are your thoughts/ plans about this? TIA :)

@ all:
Hype is a really versatile app !
Even if you mainly use Rapidweaver, Hype can bring some nice extras to your work!

I've used Hype to replace iWeb. There were things I loved about iWeb, but Hype is easy to use and created effects that I couldn't even think about doing in iWeb. I tried other options, but frankly in spite of the fact I don't have separate URLs for each "page", my sites look better than they did with iWeb. Hype is easy and so far Hype support has been incredibly good and responsive.

You can buy it from Tumult directly on their web store - no need to buy thru the App Store if you don't want to.

You're welcome! I love developers that give us that option. Usually they'll have a trial version too, which is one thing the App Store only approach doesn't give. There's a trial version for Hype, so Tumult goes on my list of good developers!

I am writing this as I download v1.5 and though this might seem premature I am giving it a five star review as version 1.0.5 already earns five stars as far as I'm concerned. I have used RapidWeaver for years and was loathe to spend time on learning yet another app (RapidWeaver just wasn't cutting it anymore) yet Hype has got my new site up and running quickly and reliably and I am already getting favourable customer feedback on it.

RapidWeaver with Stacks is incredibly powerful, and Hype adds beautiful animation possibilities to that combo. If you think RapidWeaver isn't cutting it anymore, then maybe you haven't explored its potential …

For me the combo of RapidWeaver, Stacks, and Hype beats the pants of some much more expensive "professional" software (I'm looking at you Adobe, don't think I didn't see you …).

I'm sure you're right Markus and I was probably a bit harsh on RapidWeaver. I used RapidWeaver from the start and used to develop my own themes for it as I when I needed them. I am very finicky about having a site that I design 100% so am loathe to use 3rd party themes which appears to be the direction RW is heading. I'm sure Stacks would be a great way to combine RW and Hype and if I get enough time I'll explore it but for now I think I'll just stick with Hype on its own. p.s. I don't spend enough time working on the web - I just need a new site every year or so, spend a furious amount of time developing it, then move back to programming and other stuff.
