if you use gists, this is a must-have - First I have to say that of all the things GitHub gets wonderfully right, gists are the one thing I find a pain there. They are hard to manage and hard to find. It’s the first part that mostly bothers me, as I create a lot of gists and find it hard to keep track of them. So I’ve tried several apps for gist management apps, and GistPal is the one that really gets it right. Even if I didn’t really need it, I’d want it. Here are the pros as I see them: 1. sits in the menu bar - I don’t have to go looking for it 2. log in using regular GitHub credentials, and it remembers you forever 3. easy to create, edit and update gists 4. easy to search for gists 5. do everything you need to do with gists without ever going to Github: create them, edit them, update them, get the embed code, link to them, etc… If you don’t believe me, get this one, and get a couple of the other gist management apps. and see how much better GistPal is.

Slow, buggy on Mavericks. - This is a great idea poorly executed. On Mavericks, at least, the sign-up process was buggy, the app is slow to load after clicking the menubar icon, and the controls don’t work well. For $7, I’d expect something a littlle more fully implemented.
