Just wondering: does this thing roundtrip from existing code or is it one way code generation only?

A really interesting idea, need to play with it more, but could save me hours of work!

Looks great, but only a week or so after the release of 1.0.1 -- and with no warning -- the developer increased the price to $99 (still says $79.99 here).

Dear developer: I understand it's your prerogative to increase your price whenever you choose. HOWEVER, don't go sending out press releases and get a bunch of coverage at the $79.99 price point, then WITHOUT AN "INTRODUCTORY PRICE" DISCLAIMER jack the price less than a week later.

I'm definitely interested in the app, and I was grudgingly ready to pony up the $80, but after this little stunt, I'm SERIOUSLY second-guessing it.

Neutral review until the developer responds.

I pinged them on Twitter about this... maybe you should as well? They're @PixelCutCompany there.

MacUpdate is..um, not a support forum.

Leoofborg is dead on/correct with his answer. MU is a site for users to exchange experiences and opinions about an app with other users.

If a developer chooses to stop by and answer a question that is fine, but MU is and never was geared towards being a place for users to interact with developers, whether it be complaints, praise, feature requests, etc...

Contact the developer along the proper channels, like the developer's twitter, email, phone (if your so lucky), etc... and if none of those exist or you do not receive an answer, then let other users here at MU know that you have tried contacting the developer directly and received no response.... That is useful to other users to know that the developer doesn't respond to communications and should be posted here at MU. - Never expect a developer response here though, even if they had responded in the past...

Your info about the price change is useful to users though, will make them really think about their purchase and who they are paying nearly $100 too and if they should expect to pony up more money soon after... dev who cares about product and customers or revenue more... should always be a happy medium tilted towards customers and product... I know this message is way late but maybe someone will read it and take something useful away. If not, load on the negative "-1" clicks!!

This a wonderful program. Yes, the price is a bit high, but it's worth it. Let's face it: would you rather create your controls in code and modify the code over and over again until the control looks good, or instead get it to look right easily with a graphics program then generate code for it? The time saved is worth the price.
