Was hoping this would be the icloud answer for Text Edit on the Mac syncing with iPhone/iPad. Sorely disappointed. Loses all of the clean functionality of Text Edit. Impossible to create outlines. Text Edit is soooo much better. I just wish Apple would create a native app for iPhone/iPad to iCloud sync Text Edit documents then we wouldn’t need crap applications like this.

Functional, but needs much fit-and-finish work.

The Mac app doesn’t follow OS X interface conventions. Overly-saturated icons are thrown into the title bar, toolbars can’t be customized, and there isn’t a Preferences area to adjust settings.

I’m all for — and excited about — the multi-device sync, but for day-to-day use on the mac, this app isn’t where it needs to be in terms of fit-and-finish. I spend my days in text editors, and I want that writing environment to be a reasonably attractive one.

Convert RTF to HTML - really!!!

I copy selected text out of a reference app that I use daily to use them in web pages and the copied text that lands in the clipboard is RTF format. I need it in HTML format. THIS APP does that for me very easily and cleanly. Worth every penny and a real time saver. I just discovered Mach Write today and I had to give it 5 stars because IT JUST WORKS.
