Start modeling - finally!
We all love our de-facto standard JSON.

If you are new to the app: this app is out for a couple of years now and develpers greatly appreciate it. It is a design tool primarily, and has always been for free as my part of giving back to the developer community. I put some effort in a smoother design and made many adjustments from some valuable feedbacks. Code generators are a new feature, which is connected to a payment, which is a practical way to show if you value the feature and the app. Depending on your feedback the app will be extended with further functionality. Enjoy JSON modeling!

tl;dr: Modeling is the core feature and for free as always, new code generators have to be paid for (and save lots of time)

Despite the long existence of UML and best practices of software engineering you can't find any diagrams in the API documentations of Google, Facebook, Twitter and the likes.

So help yourself, stop deciphering unreadable example files and use this new simplified visual representation of JSON structures as object oriented models.

• Tree structures depict hierarchical structures of objects
• Multiplicity indicator of objects and attributes depict arrays

Examples and a tutorial are provided inside the App. Use JSON Designer to jump right into defining your API, without reading a single page of JSON documentation.

• Graphically model JMs, ie your JSON Models
• Email JM images to integrate in documentations
• Reverse-generate JMs from URLs or direct JSON input
• Browse hand-picked popular API examples
• Tutorial
• Open-in: exchange JSON files with other apps

Stay tuned for new features via @jsondesigner on Twitter.
Feedback is gratefully appreciated.

More that 65% of JSON Designer users say it's a must-have and are using it daily!

Optional code generators for backers (saving you lots of time): Obj-C, Swift, Java, JavaScript, Perl, Python, Ruby, PHP.

Clunky but good

This is the only app on the app store that allows you to export your *.JSON files. I don't care that it is clunky and you can't use your own formatting, this works.

Expensive and needs work

Has a lot of potential, but it's a bit hard to use. Would be nice to see the other languages, even if you can't copy the code. And $2/month, are you serious?

Lots of promise, but...

At a basic level I like it and it fits my need for brain dumping as I'm lying in bed or on the go. The UI is rough and a bit clunky, but it works and the tutorial/challenges are somewhat helpful for learning.
$1.99 PER MONTH is crazy for code generation abilities though. There is no way I'm going to do a subscription model. Thankfully I don't really care about code generation that much, though it could be handy if the cost was reasonable and one-time.
