A great leap forward! UPDATE

Simon Says is simple, fast and accurate! It does one of my favorite things, take the tech out of the way to make more time for creativity. Sync clips, multicam, favorites, user based markers, multi-channel wav files. More features coming.

4 stars for translation. Corrections were needed, but minor.

Took away a star bc the app seems unnecessary if I have to go the website to make edits.

Dearest Devs, clicking the Edit button should allow, wait for it, editing, within the app.

And while you're at it, clicking a word on the website, should you know, go to that word in the audio file.

Developer Response ,

Hi - sorry for this. We are adding support for editing in the Mac app itself very soon.

And clicking on the word does move the video to that position with command + mouse click. We highlight this in the demo and you can click the ? icon in the toolbar to see the list of keyboard shortcuts.
