Good program hampered by Apple Store

Overall, this is a 4-star or above program but is hampered by Apple’s DRM. There’s no feeling as much as being stabbed like a knife as when you go to run Textwrangler to perform critical work on a tight timeframe and you discover that you can’t because of Apple blocking the program saying I’m not authorized and need to login to use the program.

Maybe this is a little inconvenient when you CANNOT login because of location and circumstances?

I will still use Textwrangler but I cannot risk being without a core tool when it most needed. I’m probably taking off 0.5 star for this issue. So I will increase from current 3 star to a 4 star review (3.5).
