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.

Needed a mac version of notepad++

Just like a previous reviewer after moving from Windows to Mac I needed a replacement for notepad++.

Early days but within a few minutes of installing its clear this looks “proper job” and free!
Doesnt get any better :)

Got this to try out something

I wanted to try out making an html signature for emails and after watching various YouTube videos, this seemed the one to go for. It worked a treat! Maybe next time I might have a go with a bit more challenging project.
