Solid reliable performant tool for editing JSON data

I’ve been using this tool for more than a few years. It’s always been reliable and performant and simply gets better with each update. Autosaving to iCloud is great!

2019 Update: I realised that this is one of the ten core apps that I rely on every week. THanks you again!

Great app…for small files.

This app is critical to my business, and I am very glad I purchased it. However it appears the app is not optimized for multiple cores, if I 20-40mb JSON file, it takes minutes to do any operation, even on an iMac Pro.

I would really love if the developer improves multiple core and single core performance and would easily update this to 5 stars.

Good App

Great app,but this app does not work well for large JSON files and gets the OSX circle of death for JSON files over 1MB.
