Superb product, not to much, not to little.

The product has a good help section, as it should. I picked that apart, a little, just to learn. The developer is responsive. As for the application, its intuitive with very little learning curve. The developer has a trial offer, and because i was skeptical, i went for it. However,I recommend you just buy it. It took a little effort for the trial version’s cache to be purged, that was the only bummer, biggee though. The purely html option will be very useful for web based support files as well. This product brought authoring of a help system down to a manageable level, you don’t have to write your own css, html, plists, etc… With this tool It took a day to develop a help book (first draft) and add it to my application. SUCCESS!

the simplest way to maintain quality help in your app

The macOS help system is notoriously quirky and not as well documented as it could be. Help Crafter has a few little quirks of its own, but for the most part it greatly simplifies the process of creating and maintaining high quality help for an app. It feels like a very simple, streamlined, specialized word processor which makes it almost ideal for putting the maintenance of help documents into the hands of technical writers, directly.

Thank you for this App !! When I finished my program, I knew it would be great to make use of the Apple Help to make a more professional look. However, I could not make sense of Apple’s (scant and old) documentation. This tool is just what I needed. And, yes, the “Help” gave me enough information to use it properly AND get it into my App. An inspiration as to why is it so important to make good “Help” content : )
