Ratings and Reviews
Has promise, needs interface work
I like supporting new apps and developers, but there were too many annoyances and glitches to keep using this tool:
* It was confusing to add and rename requests. Double-clicking the name only seemed to "sort of" work, and using the file interface to change it was unintuitive.
* It was even harder figure out how to change the HTTP method. I almost didn't figure out that I had to click on it in the breadcrumb path on the details page. Why wasn't I asked up front what method I wanted? Why can't I change it by clicking on the big rectangle for it in the sidebar?
* The ' ' sign to add a new environment or session was very small and easy to miss. There should be ways to do it under the File menu, or by right-clicking in those tabs.
* I couldn't figure out how to add query and header values in the views for them. Clicking on a blank row didn't work. Double-clicking and right-clicking on a blank row didn't work. There was no "File" option. This is the point at which I gave up and looked for another tool.
Macs are easy to use because there's more than one way to do most things for different user intuitions. This app *looked* easy, and I like the environment and sessions structure, but the interface didn't work the way I expect for a Mac and there's no on-screen help or tooltips. If you can refine the UI I think you'll have a great tool worth paying for.
