Update to my initial review - this is the best! - There has been an update since my initial review, and performance is now superb. All in all, I think this is the best of several HTTP clients on the App Store. It's easy to use in every respect, and I love that it allows you to save requests within the interface (I guess there off in a plist or something) rather than saving them as standalone files (that you're sure to lose track of). Another plus -- for me, at least -- is that authentication and other headers are saved as part of the request so that you don't have to re-enter them. This app saves me tons of time in testing RESTful services.

Needs tabs - I like this application a lot. My biggest frustration is that I cannot have multiple windows or tabs open at the same time. I need this frequently so I can take the results of one request and copy them into another request as parameters. Other than that it's great.
Handy tool for the API developer. - I needed a tool for quickly checking responses from an api that required basic authentication. This tool fits that function well and it will be my goto recommendation for now. A couple of the downsides are already commented. It’s in need of a visual refresh (very stock app) and the addition of tabs would be welcome.
Fails to run under High Sierra - Looks like it hasn’t been updated since 2013, and it doesnt work with High Sierra.
Does what it says it does - Good tool, needed a decent OS X REST client in a pinch and this is doing a great job so far.
