For certain kinds of tasks this is a perfect viewer.
I have to work regularly with non-programmer clients viewing an xml export that can be pretty hard to read in a text editor. This is a perfect solution for them. My only request is that the developer makes Search work. Then I would give it 5 stars. But for $.99 it's pretty hard to complain. Thanks Michael.
Simple viewer, which is what I wanted.
I just wanted to quickly look at some XML files in a tree format, like Xcode does with property lists, and this app does it well. A couple of suggestions for the developer: – I don’t see the need to click on the disclosure triangle of an element in order to get the “#text” entry which allows you to edit the element; why not do it “in line” on the line right above it (the greyed out line)? It seems wasteful, not to mention that it’s bothersome to click a disclosure triangle only to see “#text” revealed. – As others have mentioned, the search does not seem to do anything, like it’s not working at all. Otherwise, I got what I wanted, a quick and tree-formated display of my XML files. Thank you.
It does what it says it does. Nothing more, nothing less.
If you are looking for an elegant way to view XML documents, this is a perfect little tool. I find it very handy when I don’t need to do a bunch of editing or validation, I just want to look at the data.
I too should have skipped buying
Search doesn’t work, no scroll bars even! Very slow. Should have just used BBEdit or some other text editor.
Sticking to my text editor
Being this was only 99 cents, I’m not bent too out of shape. Still, I should have read the other reviews. This is pretty much unusable. I WILL be sticking to my text editor. Shame on me for thinking that would be included.
