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.

Great - except quotes

This has been a pretty great app in general for editing JSON files. In the last couple versions, I've noticed whenever I type a quote, it automatically changes to smart quotes instead of just straight quotes, which makes it bad JSON...

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.
