I was thrilled to see that Macworld today posted a review of MarsEdit 2.0. The application earned 4 mice, which for those of you who follow the magazine know, is a pretty great accomplishment. I’m betting that one day I’ll earn all five, but for the time being I’m quite pleased with this achievement.
Lisa Schmeiser, who reviewed the application, did a good job of identifying many of the improvements I made for the 2.0 release, such as built-in Flickr support, and enhanced markup macros. But she also tuned into some of the “soft features” that are not as suited to bullet lists, but nonetheless make a huge impact on users over time. One of these is the “peace of mind” that MarsEdit can provide:
MarsEdit 2.0.4’s big appeal is peace of mind: You can compose posts locally and archive your work. Anyone who’s ever lost a Weblog post owing to a browser freezing or site going down will appreciate this tool.
Ask any Mac software developer you can find, and they’ll attest that getting reviewed by Macworld is one of the things we hope and strive for. It’s a great honor just to get mentioned, but to receive such a positive and thoughtful review really makes my day.
