The app seemed to work ok. But once I posted it to my blog, the formatting was off. I could not get the spaces equal between paragraphs. I eventually had to cut and past the whole post onto a word document and then back into the wordpress editor to fix the formatting issues. For a FREE editor, it works but I would rather pay for something and save me the time of making my post look perfect.

I will not rate it because I cannot / will not try it. It is another boxed in app in a boxed in universe. Why?

--Wordpress only
--Appstore only
--Hype/Glitz website with little to no useful information

No direct download for a free app? Seriously?

The blog apps in the Mac world are the worst on average across all platforms... that includes compared to some I've used on Linux and Unix as well as Windows. And no, MarsEdit doesn't stand up since it hasn't seen substantial improvements in a few years now and it is 5 to 10 years behind what's in the Windows world.

I will be back when I see some things improve here... or when I can actually see anything here without hassling with the AppStore just to test something that's free.

Preach it, Brother/Sister.

Besides which, let's say you haven't yet installed OS 10.7, but you foresee yourself doing so in the not-to-distant future, and just want a copy of this app for that future time. Well, no can do via the MacCrapStore.

It's FREE. How is that not "DEMO" enough for you? There's no more "hassle" of the App Store than there is downloading it off the dev's website, with the difference being that just to please YOU, the dev now has to pay for professional hosting.

This is a good example of why some apps won't get my further interest: the GUI looks nice but it is not clear what features are included. Does it support scripting? Is there a preview pane? What about custom fields?
At the moment I am using MarsEdit, which is the best tool I found so far to edit WP posts on the mac. As there is no demo version available and the site only speaks about formatting and retina graphics, I have to assume there is not much more included.
Tell me, there is more and let me try it out first and I will consider looking closer at this app.
side note: this has nothing to do with all those "app store bashing" comments. The problem is not the app store, the developers just don't get it right (provide enough information, demo version, ...).

Works better than any other blogging app I've used in past. Developer was quick to respond when i email about few features I like to see, which will be included in next update.

You contacted the developer on the very day when the application was released? Hmm... The way you write sounds like you are doing a favor for the software developer, by the way. Those fake-review actors always say something like 'developer was quick to respond to my e-mail.'
