"...and it seems to work."

That's the kind of confidence I like in my software developers! ;)

Ok, let me expand on that initial reaction.

Vim is, of course, the best text editor. This implementation of it does by far the best job I've seen of balancing Vim-ness with Mac-ness; it preserves all the wonderful Vim keybindings but also supplies OS X goodies like multiple windows (which the vastly inferior "Carbon Vim" had led me to believe was downright impossible), pretty tabs, transparency, and plenty of other goodies. I had been juggling TextMate and Carbon Vim, but this new contender puts Vim way out ahead again. I suspect that's exactly where it will stay until TextMate adds modal editing: ha! Not likely.

Long story short: Bjorn Winckler, you're my new hero.

Since people at my university tend to just assume you have MS Word, I was excited about this program, thinking it would allow me to stop having to fire up NeoOffice every time I wanted to read a syllabus. While it shows promise, it's not quite there yet. Importing of .doc files is really spotty: I often get page breaks in places that clearly aren't where they were in the original document, and tables are usually hopelessly mangled. Still, I'll be jumping on every point update of this app hoping these issues get fixed, because everything else about it is really nice.

Possibly the best name for any app, ever, anywhere.
[Version 1.0b8]

Doesn't do anything for me, and by that I mean the software literally has no effect on my computer.

Wait, I take that back. The star trails appear in a square in the bottom left corner of my screen which seems to be about 400x400 pixels. Weird.

For the record, the new version works perfectly for me, even with loads of other running apps. Kudos to the dev.
[Version 1.7]

I'm not sure how to "back up" a claim about a piece of software that doesn't work for me as it should, but nevertheless I'll concede that my previous review was sort of unfair. I did quit all my other applications and try again, as the dev suggested; the problem persisted, so it's not just my own error that caused it. Still, it's pretty clear that mine is an unusual case, so I'll offer a new rating of five stars to offset my previous one and get back in the good graces of the dev so he doesn't blow me off when I email him for support. Like I should have done in the first place. ;)

A great program for those teachers who don't know how to do basic arithmetic and should therefore probably not be teaching.
[Version 1.0.2]
