In follow-up to my previous comment:

Since the vendor's site explicity says "We design and build iPhone and iPad apps for your business", there's a good reason to suspect they've simply ditched their Mac app efforts without further notice, and thus the app deserves to be review accordingly. Pardon my grief, but this kind of business conduct sucks. (To this date, it's about a year since the app was released, with already mentioned shortcomings.)

I don't want to write a negative review because I am still naive enough to hope for some sort of refinement of this app.

As is, this app is very rough around the edges. My main grief is that you can't even paste a URL link in the address field ... Why, oh why, can't you do that? Really, this should be a quick fix that I belive shouldn't involve any headaches whatsoever to implement, right.

The other wish is that Aptus had some kind of simple bookmark feature, so you can quickly retrieve those websites you're currently working with. And User Agent settings per site would also be great. Things like that.

Here's hoping the vendor spends a few hours shaping things up, at least normal copy/paste operation for the address field.

Aptus is a dedicated browser that lets you preview, edit and screenshot your responsive site at any size from mobile through to large desktop.

Focus your responsive workflow with a tool that doesn't rely on bookmarklets, restrictive pre-defined breakpoints - or even a Web connection.

Aptus improves on web-based tools by letting you create and work on multiple breakpoints simultaneously, even setting custom user agents if required. Aptus also allows you to preview and debug fluid variations inside your media queries with our unique "Range" functionality - all without having to resize your browser ever again.

Aptus allows you to capture full viewport screenshots of all open breakpoints for sending to clients, supporting blog posts or assessing layout. Of course Aptus doesn't require a Web connection so you can work uninterrupted when traveling or when a connection isn't available.

Headline features:
  • Create multiple custom breakpoint tabs at any size you need - to mimic any device
  • Inspect and edit your sites using the full suite of webkit developer tools
  • Set per-breakpoint user agents to test device specific code
  • Screenshot the entire webpage at all breakpoints to share or send to clients
  • Preview breakpoint "ranges" with instant visual feedback
  • Easily establish exactly when your media queries fire without having to resize the browser
