    Summary

    This is a great utility! Reading text from screen is much easier with it.

    P.S. The only thing I would like to see added is ability to bookmark positions in text.

    "I love this, and if it had..."

    Version: Tofu 1.3.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This makes reading on the computer so much easier. I read the readme file about why this is so, and didn't really think much of it until I started using Tofu. It's true the narrower columns and the visual stability from scrolling horizontally is way more pleasant/normal.

    If this app had page turning like Zinio Reader, it would be over the top. In no way am I complaining. Tofu is freeware. Personally, I think there is absolutely no grounds for griping against freeware apps, except when there is fasle advertaising that results in computer problems.

    For the developer, the "page down" and "down arrow" scroll equally as much as the "right arrow".

    I'm using a G5 with OS 10.3.9

    Summary

    If only I could print (even if it defaults back to the original layout of the document, without columns -- I don't care!).

    Otherwise, this has become my default reader for the many "Read me" files and other dross that I have to plough through on a day-to-day basis. It makes things sooooo much easier to read.

    "this is great!"

    Version: Tofu 1.3.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    this is wonderful for readability, as it maximizes the aspect ratios of standard computer resolutions. smooth scrolling to the columns is very, very nice. the perfect thing for reading long, dry, military reports converted to text by Italian bloggers.

    sugestions:

    • a problem: an opened document will have part of the first and second columns blank. select all or a window refresh will fix it
    • let me print (and hence save to PDF) by selecting fixed numbers of columns (and rows?) per page.
    • make a browser that lets me view a page in columns (that might be asking too much)

    Version: Tofu 1.1.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This is truly unique, finally I know what to do with my widescreen... ;) No joking, this is the best fast viewer for any text file!
    But please, please don't let this app open an empty window on every launch or icon-click (at least make it configurable)!

    Summary

    Kudos to the author. This eases eye strain, enables faster reading of text and works slick as can be. One of simple things in life that once you use it, you'll wonder how you ever did without it.

    Version: Tofu 1.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This is wonderful! It should be a part of the system itself. This addresses one of the long-standing problems I've had with reading anything lengthy on the computer screen. It also preserved the hyperlinks from the NY Times article I tested and that is great. Any improvement would be icing on the cake.

    "Nice! --but some problems"

    Version: Tofu 1.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The ability to display unicode text is wonderful, but text wraps around the original margins when viewing rtf documents. No big deal, I can change my margins, but it would be nice for the app to change them itself. Changing the column view leaves "ghost text" at times.

    Also, it would be nice if the app supports printing.

    For a 1.0 product, still 5 stars overall!
