Is it me, or is this better than sliced bread?

Simple, intuitive (didn’t need instructions), and does exactly what it says.

Works great - doesn’t feel native

I wish that it felt more like a native macOS application. Maybe start with updating the window buttons to be native.

It’s good

easy to use, and it’s free. What can I say? good.
