For twenty-bucks you'd think the thing wouldn't be so adamant about always opening in the middle of my screen. Not sure this app is worth an entire dock icon either. Not many features, in fact not much to it at all. As this point I wouldn't even use this if it were freeware.

Yikes! I thought this might be like Pages but with better drawing tools and features like the ability to combine and subtract overlapping shapes and so forth. I've always enjoyed the “magic” ability of Pages to maintain as well as offer so much control over the format and structure of information copied from other Cocoa apps like Safari. For example if I copy a Wikipedia article from Safari and paste it directly into a Pages layout document, Pages maintains tabular data by transferring the info into a Pages Table and in turn placing that in the text columns, it's really great stuff. IStudio on the other hand doesn't seem to offer such niceties in the realm of what many users generally know as a “Cocoa experience” (not to be confused with the actual Cocoa API which iStudio might in some ways utilize). I'm probably at fault for having the wrong set of expectations. That said, I am a bit amazed at how silly this application feels, it doesn't exhibit much in the way of good design and usability. I hate to come off as a curmudgeon but the truth is iStudio Publisher is basically rubbish. Maybe somehow I was redirected to the wrong download or something. Is this by any chance just the alpha? Oh well, competition is always good for end users, in this case it's definitely the competing products that shine!

P.S. Reduced Functionality demos are bad news and iStudio's implementation of a crippled trial is no exception. The inability for users to test drive and experience the full potential of the tool within their workflow most often ends quickly with a trip to the Trash bin.
