Great for cleaning and processing text

This does a great job of cleaning and formatting JSON, XML and other text-based formats before using my texteditor of choice.

Nice little app, but changes file type defaults

It’s a nice little developer’s app. But I was reminded I had it when I went to go check the default app on an XML file. TextLab had hyjacked the XML File type and likely many more file extension associations too. JSON has been hijacked too, and I can bet I can keep listing them. As a developer, I have my ways. Having some App come by and have the odasity to go change the file associations is low class. If I want TextLab to be a default I CAN CHANGE IT MYSELF EXTRODINARILY EASILY. This revelation has really changed my mind on the quality of this App. If it wern’t outright garbage, why would they dare change all the defaults? THe last App I had that did this was classified Malware and widely deleted.

If TextLab is the only program you ever intend on using, maybe this hyjacking of all the File Types is okay, for real developers that use real tools and have real experience, this App is really an insult.
I’d rather not delete TextLab as the first option so we’ll see if the associations get left alone in the next update, or if I need to delete this App for being lousy pushy Malware.

This app is awesome, and I am prophetic!

3 years ago I reviewed this app, and wrote "Wonderful app - I see this being a staple of my development cycles." This claim has, indeed, proven to be VERY TRUE - I use this app constantly! In all this time it has never disappointed. Its compreshensive feature set does its job, and the clean, thoughtful UI stays out of my way while doing it - it is a joy to use. Thank you again!
