Niiiiiice! - Thank you for this app: it is just what I needed. I was able to figure out how to use it immediately. However, I've had some experience with Beyond Compare, so I'm not a complete noobe. It might be a good idea to provide a short Help section when you have time. Still, this app is awesome as it is. Great job! One problem for you might be visibility in the App Store. When I searched for "Merge Files" and "Compare Files," your app didn't show up. It DOES show for "File Merge" and "File Compare." I don't know how you control that (maybe wording in your description?), but it would be a boost for your sales if you can get your app in the list for all of those terms.

Review by kcrossen

CompareMerge nearly perfect folder sync, fatal issue - Huge problem, I’ve paid for this application, and yet nearly every time I start the app, it forces me through one of two dialogs, no way to turn them off: “Rate this app” and “Convert to no-sandbox version”. This is an absolutely arrogant slap at the paying customer, no excuse for this application behavior.
