"As a fan of handy Mac menubar apps, LittleIpsum rightfully finds its place in mine. Convenient. Simple. Useful. A must for anyone that designs or writes code.” — Brian Hoff of The Design Cubicle

“It’s the swiss army knife of latin text generators.” — Trent Walton

"Have been trying out LittleIpsum. Much faster than other methods. Access OS-wide, too. I still use loremify, but sometimes waiting for dashboard takes forever.” — Luke Dorny


Release Notes:

• Mouse hover is no longer offset on El Capitan
• Removed anonymous usage metrics where I was able to see how frequently, and what amount of latin an anonymous user was copying

Review by betageuse

“anonymous” usage data - I used to really like this application and used it often. But the decision to add “anonymous” usage metrics collection without any way to disable it and without telling users what data is being collected and sent back to the developer is very disturbing. I will be removing littleipsum from my system.

Review by kc! Bradshaw

Wonderful app - I love this app, and use it all the time as my go-to lorem ipsum generator. Sends a new random string of words every time so your placeholder text will be far more accurate. And free? Almost too good to be true. Thank you Dustin Senos (and anyone else on the Little Ipsum team)!
