Not bad once you get use to it. Just needed something lightweight for writing w/o any distractions. I do like the many output formats thought there is no control over font faces and the output is not the same as in the app. I guess with font licensing one could understand that.

Only big issue I have noticed at this point is it dose not come out of full screen well… it disappears. You get 2 empty OS X spaces and have to click it's icon in the dock several times to finally see the app.

Can't find it in the App Store, developer's site not up... Abandonware?
