Version 5.0.2
Review by theslowlane

One of the better Mac text editors - I have used all three versions of Smultron on the App Store and a version or two prior to them being available there. This is hands down one of the best text editors for a Mac. It's lightweight, responsive, intuitive, and attractive to use. Smultron 5 is a wonderful evolution from Smultron and Smultron 4. Gone is the preference pane - honed down to a manageable list of options under the "View" menu. The Documents window is better than tabs, in my opinion, because that is one less toolbar taking up screen real estate. The Documents window supports list or icon view with the Mac OS system-specified icon for the file. Smart and integrated. I'd love to see the Snippets window also offered as a menu bar option where I can sort snippets, but the current window gives you a good glimpse into the snippet's code. A fine text editor at an incredible price.

Version 5.3
Review by andreashorey

program went downhill - I used to love Smultron, and used it exclusively. Since it's availability on the 'app store' through Apple, it's degraded. The program crashes frequently, and fails to open documents, reporting them as 'locked' when in fact they are not. Closing and reopening the application temporariliy solves the problem. However, it is against productivity if I can only have one file open at a time! Now it's counter productive. I miss the old Smultron.
