Fantastic app for REST services developers

This app is worth so much more than its price. You have the option of setting up a single API for multiple environments with a base URL for each and common API endpoints, authentication schemes, json models, and queries for all of them. Once you've hit your API and received json responses, it will allow you to export objective-c models for the entire schema. It's incredible. I was able to map an entire API to an iPad app in a matter of a few days. I can't believe how helpful this app has been. Updated for new version.

Frikin Fantastic

Wow. My life of editing pretty printed text files in eclipse is over! I used to have to constantly use a JSON lint to find the little commas or colons I forgot or misplaced. This is so much better. I can edit my massive JSON file very very fast and keep it organized. Moving, copying, and editing objects is very quick. Basically the same as the xml editors that have been out for years.

Awesome app, worth 10x the price!!

Cocoa JSON editor has become an integral part of my development toolchain and is a MUST for any developer working with a JSON endpoint. I've saved countless development hours decoupling my work from flakey endpoints, delivering the JSON structure and stability required to develop an app. For the amateur one-star reviewers who need a quick JSON viewer/editor, check out Power JSON editor.
