A Hidden Treasure

By any standard this is an economical app. However, I keep using it every time that I subtitle a video. And it's not because I don't have others. The fact is that I have most of them on my computer. I love it because it's simply clean, elegant and easy to use.

Best of all, the developer actually answers my emails and implements many of my suggestions. Together we have taken this app from great to outstanding.

A Great Improvement

I've used the pre-App Store version now and then, and felt that it struck the right balance of powerful features and ease of use compared to other products. I was happy to support the developer when this app arrived on the App Store, but I didn't realize how many improvements had gone into the 2.0 release. The single window is more manageable than the multiple windows and pallets of previous releases and it's still customizable by showing just the parts that you need. The improved visual feedback on the timeline is great and the navigation controls are better than ever. I've been able to figure most things out without going to the documentation, but it's there if I need it and clearly walks you through many common uses. I suggested a minor feature addition to the developer and he added it into the next release.

I am on my fist film, and after looking at many programs to create subtitles, i found this one and it is just great.

I would like a new option in upcoming updates , that when i close the project it will ask me if i like to save it…..
so that i don't have to scream so much for lost changes.. :)
