Everything about this app is amazing. - This app is a must-have for every single developer. No exceptions. Only feature I can request is full-screen support for Lion! UPDATE: Full Lion support is amazing. I can't say enough nice stuff about this thing. Super useful. I use it every day.

Great app, but extremely buggy - Update: Abandonded. This app hasn’t been updated since 2012! Do not buy it! I really like this app, but it has a number of bugs that interrupt workflow and make it frustrating to use at times. In the latest version, snippets are expanded without me hitting 'tab', so I keep getting unwanted expansions as I type. Also, I can't just click on tabs without highlighting all of them. You have to click right on the edge of the tab to select. I'm also unable to search all my snippets in the snippet column, if the tag list is showing in the far left column. I have to first change to the folder view, select all snippets again and then conduct a search. Finally, everytime I launch the app, it forgets my menubar setting. Every time I have to open prefernces to turn it back on. Lots of potential in this app, but some of the bugs have got to be worked out.

Best of the best. - I have used many of the other Top Snippet Managers and find CodeBox to better fit my needs. Also their Customer Support is the most responsive to date. Thanks for making a great app.

Review by ianthekirkland

Dead - I loved CodeBox. But I'd hate to see anyone else purchase this now. My app WON'T EVEN LAUNCH. Deleted prefs files, messed with permissions, the whole bit. All of this, of course, comes as no surprise: just look at the dates of the other reviews... 2012s and a few 2014s? Really. This app is DEAD.

Review by Simdude

No Swift support - I just bought Codebox (April 2016) and regret not doing a little more homework. I wanted the app for Swift snippets and the app doesn’t have support for Swift. It doesn’t look like it’s been updated since 2012 and the last Twitter posts from the author are from 2013 making any future support a bit unlikely. I would recommend looking online at something like GistBox which, while doesn’t currently offer Swift support either, is as least being actively developed. Another option is to simply use something like Evernote. With great search and tags, it seems to offer the same as CodeBox, especially for languages missing syntax highlighting.

Review by nickname_is_already_taken

Nice app but too buggy to use {ABANDONWARE] - There are things I love about this app but it's too buggy to use. While bugs are annoying, Codebox has a system crippling memory leak when the filter is used. If you use use the filter to search be prepared to quit quickly or pray that your coding work is saved. Worse it's ABANDONWARE since the developer hasn't responded to bug reports or even updated since 2012. I STRONGLY recommend not rewarding this developer by buying this app. I'm beginning to wish I hadn't.
