Customer Reviews

Simply perfect!

This app is just what I had been looking for after Apple decided to “improve” TextEdit. TextWrangler is just as lightweight as the old TextEdit, but does a lot more too, such as syntax highlighting and multiple tabs. Can’t rate this app highly enough, and it’s free! Love it so much that I found the developers and donated to their projects.


Abosolutely perfect! This program supports all the languages i need instead of me having to switch between applications and working my way around them all, instead, this is really easy to use and seems to not miss out anything anyone may want.

Really Good

Staight after coming from notepad ++ from windows and getting a Mac, I needed a text editor and this one had really good reviews and after a few days its better than notepad++. Its really simple which it needs to be in my opinion.
