Works great

Does what it says. I like that it is so lightweight.

I have a couple of requests that would make it perfect:
- Ability to set keyboard shortcut, so I can lorem ipsum without clicking
- A preference setting to always open on startup
- Allow setting more than 4 paragraphs

Hi Gflyera, thanks for the kind review. I posted a new version that allows creating more that 4 paragraphs. Your other ideas are good but they would take more time to implement than I currently have available.

This app is amazing!

I was previously using GetIpsum, which was fine and did what it said; but, it recenlty stopped working with Ventura.

After searching for an alternative, I came across Little Faker and decided to give it a chance. I'm so glad I did!

Its design and app icon look better, it's simple and easy to use, and it provides more information. It does exactly what it says it does.

Being able to generate multiple types of information (including names, URLs, and even UIDs) is fantastic!

This app just works!

I only have one complaint. As someone who works in the telecom industry it would be great to have different formats for phone numbers. The current setup uses ###.###.#### which is not a standard/valid number format. For the US 1########## and 1 (###) ###-#### would be prefered.

It would be great to see multiple phone number formats added and maybe an option to create custom formatting.

Other than that, this app is pretty much perfect. Great job!

One more suggestion: While it's not something that's currently a feature, I did come across another app that also generates random photos such as product and profile photos. This would be really useful for placeholders.

Photo options that would be awesome are: profile, product, landscape, people, and logo. It would aslo be nice to have an option/link to search Unsplash.

If you decide to add, please consider adding an option for choosing portait, landscape, or square. This would help a lot.

Once again, great app and great work!

Thanks for the kind words and great suggestions. I'll consider them next time I'm updating the app.
