Note from the seller:

If you find a bug, may we ask that you don’t simply leave a negative remark on the App Store. It kills sales, and without sales, we can’t afford to keep building and making PixelPumper the best it can be. We want to make this the best app for you, so please feel free to chat to us directly through our website, and we will do our absolute best to fix your bug in the next build of PixelPumper. Thankyou.

Very Practical - I like this app. I am fairly new to Wordpress, so most of what I do is pretty basic. I like that I can easily type and edit both of my Wordpress accounts within this app. It looks like it will save me significant time and effort.

NERD MODE RIP-OFF!! - HTML editing should not be a special expensive feature! HTML editing is a basic functionality that should have always been included with this app. Having paid for this app when it launched, I'm now being asked for another $11.99 to edit in HTML. I really thought this would be my new way of using WordPress but I can't support a developer who double charges customers and asks for money for a feature that should be part of basic functionality. Also, I connected this to a Wordpress wite with over 3,000 posts and most do not show up under the previous post list or in search results.

Great app ! Just a request for my use case - I like the app, it is more practical for me to publish from this app than open the worpress admin panel. I usually publish several photos in my posts and would just love to drag n drop em to the content… Or maybe select more than one when clicking on “Add Photo”. For the rest, I like the overall simplicity of the UI, I prepare my post, include several photos, click publish and walk away, perefct.

Review by Del Oochay

HOSED by Nerd Mode - OK, I have a confession to make. I’m a sucker. There... I said it. Even though I PAID for for the app when it came out, I paid AGAIN to get Nerd Mode hoping to turn PixelPumper into at least a somewhat useful application. As one might expect, no good deed goes unpunished. Not only did I double pay but what I double-paid for killed the app. Now when I start it, I get a blank window. That’s it. Nothing. Why am I not posting this to ‘PixelPumper Support’? “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

Perfect Choice for Anyone Who Despises Productivity - Hey. If you’re one of those productivity nerds who only likes things that help you get work done or accomplish the task they were created for, move on. We don’t have room for you on the Pixel Pumper Bandwagon. But if you want to spend an hour writing a detailed post with images, important links, hashtags, etc. and then see all of that fantastic productivity disappear right before your very eyes, climp on up. We are making a place for you next to the tubas right now. Here are a few reasons you may want to use Pixel Pumper: 1. You love clean empty webpages with headers, sidebars, and footers, but absolutely no content at all. 2. You like pictures, but not on your blog. 3. You don’t have a blog, but if your laptop is ever stolen you want the perp to believe that maybe you do have a blog. Thereby keeping him busy while you look him up on “Find My Mac." 4. You want to prove the age-old maxim, “You Get What You Pay For.” 5. You hate blogging altogether. I’m sure there are many other reasons. In fact I wrote a post about quite a few of them earlier but Pixel Pumper failed to pump those pixels to my site. Oh Pixel Pumper. You always keep me giggling.

Promising but needs work - PixelPumper shows real promise as an inexpensive alternative to MarsEdit but it isn't quite ready yet.

Review by PogieMT

Just Does’t Work and Appears to Be Abanoned - The program just doesn’t work. It crashes almost immediately after I begin typing. I initially had some response with support, but after a promise of a test version, heard nothing back. Even though I notified the developer weeks ago (and received a response), the web site is down. This looks like it’s going to be abandoned in non-working state.
