I watched the developer's YouTube video for this app, but it left me with a number of questions.
How does this app compare with Quick Sprites?
Does it automatically generate and export an accompanying CSS file when the sprite image is exported, like Quick Sprites does?
I noticed in the video that an already existing CSS file can be imported into the app, but the video is a bit vague regarding the above question.
The impression I got was that if no pre-existing CSS file exists, the user of this app has to select images in the work area, and then copy and paste the CSS code that appears in the lower pane,and create his own CSS file. If this is not the case, then the developer needs to make this clearer in the video.
Does this app offer the option to optimize the sprite image file prior to exporting it? Or is this automatically done when the images are packed?
I could be wrong, but I got the impression that packing only seems to cut down on blank space between images, but does not actually optimize the overall sprite image prior to export, like Quick Sprites does.
Does this app offer the option to rename the file(s) prior to export?
Does it offer the option to set the path to the file(s) prior to export?
All of these questions could easily be answered by a potential purchaser if the developer offered a demo.
Personally, I don't like the way that Apple -- via the App Store -- is promoting the new software model of expecting users to purchase apps on blind faith -- without a demo run first -- just trusting the developer's word, and just trusting that the app will meet their needs. Even if some of these apps are only five dollars, it is still a financial risk.
I remember a few decades ago when software licenses were for life, and developers meant it. There was none of this annual subscription nonsense and upgrade paths we are now forced to endure. Milking the same users over and over again is nonsense. Developers need to hoof it, and learn to attract new users, instead of just keep hitting up their current user base.
Even fully functioning, time-limited demos are starting to become extinct.
Okay . . . my rant is over . . . for now. :)
