"Great Program To Do Just What It Says"

March 24, 2006  |  By schalliol

 |  Version: Plain Text Editor 2.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is just what it says, a plain text editor, and I like it. This is nice when you're worried that apps are going to add junk to your text....like the old SimpleText.

"wordless"

December 11, 2005  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: Plain Text Editor 2.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I am happy to report that I have now thrown away my dreaded copy of MSW, and emptied the trash. MSW always gave me font problems anyway, took too long to load and was so bloated for what it was. Plain Text Editor is pretty much the only text editor I can imagine ever needing. Thanks guys. I am so grateful, I am wordless.

"I find it useful"

December 11, 2005  |  By swenk22_dotmac

 |  Version: Plain Text Editor 2.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
After switching from windows one thing I missed was the windows text edit that does basic non-formated edit and saves to original format. Apple TextEdit maintains formatting and hyperlinks and wants to save to rtf.
So I find Plain text edit useful when I want to quick edit html or plain old text. Will see if vers 2.4 is much different.

"Not worth trying"

March 06, 2004  |  By Eric Westby

 |  Version: Plain Text Editor 1.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Various other free text editing applications (such as TextEdit and BBEdit Lite) have more features and are easier to use than this $10 shareware app. It's not immediately clear why the author even wrote it, nor why anyone would choose to use it.

"God, this is not funny anymore."

February 29, 2004  |  By weeb@mac.com

 |  Version: Plain Text Editor 1.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
He's a shill for AlphaOmega. I bet he's actually the author.

Here's the thing. I *am* a serious writer. I would never touch this app except to drag it into my trash.

No one needs this app. TextEdit is a fantastic little app and most useful for everything anyone could ever hope to need a text viewer for. AlphaOmega makes garbage and glut that unfairly pollutes VT and makes it harder for me to find useful updates. I wish their useless products would be blacklisted. So even suggest it could supplant Word is laughable.

Moreover, if your text editor's code is in such flux that it needs to "support" this "Extended Software Updater" you're in serious trouble. The funniest thing is that they want ten dollars for this piece of crap.

VT, please delete the fake reviews of this app.

This whole Alpha Omega software joke is getting old. And it wasn't a very good joke to begin with.

What's new in version 7.0

Version 7.0:
- A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with Mountain Lion, Mavericks and Yosemite.
- Our website address is now "www.alphaomega-software.com".
- The About window can now be closed faster just by clicking on it.
- The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the Application in particular under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks and 10.10 Yosemite:
Under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks and 10.10 Yosemite, if you're launching the Application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the Application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the Application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developper).
NB: We're not distributing our Applications through the Mac App Store, because Apple's fees policy on the Mac App Store is not financially respectful of developers and small and medium companies.
