  • nice app, i like the multiple window feature. its arguably the best one out (or at least that I've found), though isn't "full featured" a little generous considering the read-only nature? May 18, 2012 at 4:04
  • I know you have implemented all/most possible features (seems SE is keeping this to themselves for now), but "full featured" had me briefly hoping this one was different, and it seems at least one guy over at the app store was kinda misled. I know nobody wants to put "sorry it doesn't do X" in the description, just feels like it took me unnecessarily long to realize this limitation is the case for all apps as of now.
