I've relied on MarsEdit for years for posting to all my blogs. It's really nice having offline copies and drafts that I can edit and hit Command-S on like with any normal Mac document. WordPress's online UI keeps getting better and better, but there's no substitute for having a local copy.

Having local copies has come in handy a few times to do a quick search across my whole blog for some bit of text -- perhaps to make a quick change across multiple articles. It's so easy I take it for granted now.

There is one non-blogging purpose I've used MarsEdit for a couple of times. I've used the Markdown feature to dash off an email that I really wanted to be in rich text, with bullet points and distinct headers. I enter the Markdown text, copy the rich text from the Preview window, and paste it in my email.

I like being able to stage/unstage/reverse lines/hunks/files. I was happy to learn just now how to see history for specific files (right-click, "Log Selected..."). It's nice seeing when I'm ahead of or behind the remote repo; not as helpful as if I were working on a team, but still helpful.

Haven't tried this on Lion but on Snow Leopard I get "Incompatible library version: convert requires version 10.0.0 or later, but libltdl.7.dylib provides version 9.0.0" when I try to run 'convert'.

This app is beautifully organized with excellent help. It's the only sane way to edit sdef files.

Lots of nice touches make this the best Twitter client I've tried. Excellent keyboard navigation. Has a keyboard shortcut for shrinking URLs. Has lots of sensible configuration options (like color scheme, how to "Copy" tweets, hotkey for activating the app). You can view the error console. You can define tabs that filter your timeline with a regex.

For all the talk of how Twitter clients have stimulated UI innovation, I haven't seen much that impresses me. YoruFukurou stands out for all its nice little touches.

Not only does it save desk space, it has saved me a lot of wrist strain because I can use my one ergonomic keyboard for all the computers on my desk. The Leopard update is much appreciated. I just sent a few bucks to the developer.

I just took a quick look and saw two obvious UI flaws.

First, in the dialog for creating a new project, the "Choose..." button opens a file selection panel that doesn't have the "New Folder" button.

Second, it wasn't at all obvious how to change the default name of the initial document that was created for me ("New Document 1"). Double-clicking it didn't make the cell editable. Even the Inspector doesn't let me change the name. Isn't that what inspectors are for? Right-clicking a table row and selecting "Rename" is the kind of thing I'd expect from a Windows app. And I don't say this lightly, because I see Bartas is a strictly Mac development shop, and I generally like to support dedicated Mac developers.

These may be petty observations in the grand scheme of a great app, but I will say that two silly UI annoyances in the first two minutes made me lose interest in exploring any further.

Registered user since 2003.

What I like best:

* Minimal amount of structure. For this purpose I much prefer a two-pane interface to a three-pane interface.

* Instantaneous find-as-you-go search.

* Extremely reasonable price.

I also like the option to auto-detect URLs. I can look up my password for a web site and then go to that web site with one click.

Is there some reason this comes in a .pkg instead of being drag-and-drop?
