Customer Reviews

Abandoned (turning into yearly $10 subscription)

As has become quite the unfortunate trend, here’s yet another developer who uses an OS upgrade as an excuse to charge money.

Sure, it’s relatively small ($10 / year at this point) but the number of apps doing this is troubling, and they add up.

This is not the texteditor you’re looking for. Smultron 8 is now released, and I’m sure this time next year, it too will be abandoned.

Very disappointing that this has become a trend. Developers shouldn’t use OS updates as an excuse to double and triple and quadruple dip. The costs are adding up.

It's okay

A once-robust tool now crashes when you try to select multiple paragraphs and delete them; it gets incredibly slow on a modern computer when line-wrapping is enabled; opening ten or more documents simultaneously is asking for a crash; and its annual "new versions" seem to be cosmetic. I am disappointed by Smultron's decline.
