The developer seems to be picking up pace with the updates

The developer seems to be picking up pace. The regex created automatically from sample text isn’t perfect, but from a few days of use, I have been using it as a starting point where I edit the regex to what I want.

Like the new, clean look of the app

I like the new, clean look of the app. It’s a vast improvement over the previous UI. Also fixes many of the issues I had with it.

Good job!

This app has come a long way. The crashes seems to have gone away.
