Version 2.0.1
Review by themonkeycabal

Very Nice - The recent update fixed the problems I was having with this app. It seems to work beautifully now, making it, easily, the best app I have for working on documents across multiple devices from OSX to iOS without having to convert formats -- and I've tried a half-dozen other apps without much joy. The interface is clean, simple, and easy to use, allowing me to just do my thing without unhelpful and distracting bells and whistles. Exactly the app I wanted and needed. Well done on the update.

Version 1.00
Review by unprove

I was going to try it... - But it doesn't even work. Can't make a new document, can't even get a window to show up. When I launch the app the menu bar changes to Compositions but that's as far as it goes. I went to File -> New, nothing happens. I'd like to give it a shot, but it will obviously need some bug fixes first.

Version 3.0.0
Review by Benolds10

Frequently used, very satisfied - This is one of the apps that I’ve used most consistently over the past 3 years. Its utility is derived from its simplicity; sometimes I just want a window in which I can write my thoughts, and nothing more. There is no adjusting font size. No formatting. Not even bullets. By removing these distractions, I am left with the simplist applicaiton to get the job done, and I love it.
