How can the developer dare to name this software "Writer Pro" when there is since years a software by the name "Nisus Writer Pro"?

Love the concept, but with no trial version how can one objectively decide whether it will work for them? Especially a writing app. Most of the MAS reviews are not good regarding version 1.0 (current version as of my writing this comment).

I have to second this, F451. I was eager to try this out as I am simply tired of all my other writing apps. This looks like a refreshing concept to work in, and I would love to buy it -- AFTER I make sure it's right for me. Sometimes the MAS concept keeps us away from what would be great solutions to our needs.

I agree. The write-up and presentation on dev's website are very persuasive, but initial reactions from buyers are mixed, at best. If it proved to be all that the promo claims, I'd gladly pay $20. And to be fair, some of the low-balls on MAS read as if written by people who'd not troubled to figure out details of what must be an unusual — to the average Mac user — system.

If Santa kicks in with a belated double sawbuck, I'll give it a try.

Count me in with yet another concurrence WRT no demo = do deal. It's also available as an iOS app and the mutual sync would be nice, however the reviews in the iTunes store are no less unfavorable than those in the MAS. Until user experiences start turning positive, I think these two apps are off my wish list.

Yes, trying costs 20$. Good thing though, after that, you get the app for free, if you like it or not. Strange concept.

@ lemon-kun: Thanks for that! Now I have to clean coffee off my keyboard and monitor! :-)
