Best XML Inspector Yet, but... - This XML inspector is great, however it's missing a few key features that prohibit me from giving it a solid five-star rating (hint, hint to the developer)... 1. Attribute values in the preview panel really should wrap. 2. How about a menu item that can verify if XML is valid or not? 3. It would be great if the preview panel would show unescaped text (e.g. %20 becomes a non-breaking space). 4. It's a great inspector, but why not let it also be an editor? 5. An XML reformatter (a la TextMate) would be KILLER. All that said, I'm really nitpicking here. I certainly don't want to take away from the fact that I'll be using this tool quite often. :)
Useless - So much for syntax highlighting and cleansing invalid files. It won't even open them. Waste of $$

As a viewer it's good - If you just want to view local XML files, this app is great. Not a lot of complex features, but it's fine for what it is. My only real issue is that the app always opens up XML files unformatted. You have to click on "formatted view" every time you view a file. Sure would be nice to have a preference setting to always open XML formatted.
doesn’t even open - I would give this a 0 star if it were possible. I downloaded and paid $3 for this application and it won’t even open. I try to have it show “all windows” and nothng appears. I have tried restarting my computer and nothing seems to work.
Does what I need - The xml I work with is usually well-formed but complex, and this app does a good job of showing the outline and highting the relevant sections as I click them. Very useful for understanding the xml so that I can write the parsing code.
Easy to use viewer - The app makes it easy to view XML documents, it was perfect for what I needed. I am more of a business user and I need to see XML files so that I can read them easier, this was the perfect tool for me.
Fine for reading XML - I use it for scanning local XML files to quickly understand the structure and look for specific entries in the hierarchy. It does just fine for that and does it well. Just what I needed for the task of reviewing XML file contents.
