    "Documentation!!!!"

    March 04, 2007   |   By brunobfan

    Version: GoodPage 1.3.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    It is just plain stupid to refuse to provide _any_ documentation for this program. It is plainly not "intuitive", or perhaps I am just not worthy to use this program.

    It creates a folder with two sample sited on the desktop. I wanted to see what they did so I doubleclicked the GoodPage file in the dynamic folder and was greeted with an inscrutable setup dialog.

    It is a complete failure on the part of the developers to think this program is so COOL that people will fight for the privilege of spending more time than necessary to learn how to use it.

    "Really needs documentation."

    December 30, 2006   |   By alphamanque

    Version: GoodPage 1.3.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The authors state at the beginning of their skimpy documentation: "We believe that applications should be designed for use without manuals." Maybe, but GoodPage doesn't appear to be designed that way at all. That statement presupposes an completely intuitive interface, users with similar intuition and a relatively simple program. In all fairness, these suppositions don't hold with any software that performs non-trivial tasks and comprehensive documentation significantly shorten learning curves.

    That said, although difficult to use, GoodPage is a very interesting program with enough clever and unique features to warrant a look if you have the time. The only major problem I found was that the ftp service wouldn't generate a remote file listing.

    My GoodPage license included a license (free) for FlyPath, a very nice, fast, small footprint file manager. It comes much closer to the intuitive ideal touted for GoodPage.

    "Steep learning curve"

    March 24, 2005   |   By allen_a_watson_dotmac

    Version: GoodPage 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I agree with Machead; the "no documentation" approach leaves me at sea. I have yet to figure out how to do something as simple as turning text bold! Command-B does not do it, and there is nothing I can find in any of the menus. I realize that it probably should be done via CSS and a style, but again, I'm at a loss as to how to do anything at all. I have popped around from one view to another, but I just don't get it. I've use Dreamweaver, I do my best work in BBEdit with preview mode. I've worked with hundreds of programs over almost 40 years, and I was able to stumble my way into using Dreamweaver without a manual (which is by no means simple), but Goodpage's approach is apparently so tangential to the way I normally think that it eludes my grasp. Until I get some documentation, I can't use it, so I cannot recommend it.

    "Updated Review!"

    March 23, 2005   |   By MacHead

    Version: GoodPage 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Based on the fast response of the developer to offer an early-adopter price, and having used the app for a day now, I feel compelled to upgrade my rating and purchase this product.

    It is an excellent HTML editor with all the bells and whistles!

    "Nice features, but..."

    March 22, 2005   |   By MacHead

    Version: GoodPage 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This app has lots of nice features but I won't buy at this price. Also, the program froze many times trying to create a browser preview of a simple page.

    Also I feel the "no documentation" approach of the developers is a little presumptuous for an app of this complexity.

    Cut the price in half and will definitely give it another try.

    "Tempting..."

    March 22, 2005   |   By luluwillie

    Version: GoodPage 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Wow. This is indeed very tempting... Too expensive? Not really. The next bulky-clunky GoLive upgrade (which is long overdue!) will probably cost as much and it's about time Adobe faces some quality competition. I also like the fact that this beautifull-powerfull application is made in Slovenia. Feels good to learn that the Mac platform is alive and well in Central Europe. I give it a 5 even though I have not done serious work with it, but I'm not worried GoodPage will be up to the task. No, I'm in no way related to this developer.

    "Good but expensive"

    March 22, 2005   |   By jdurchen

    Version: GoodPage 1.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I really like this app from the 10 minutes that I have been using it, but I am not so sure it worth $150. I could see paying $40 or so as I can do most of this with either Dreamweaver or Firefox with the web developer plugins. Though I have to admit this application tends to bring all that functionality into one package and has some nice visual cues.

    A lower price and I would give this a 5 star
