10.6: Limitations of TextWrangler or BBEdit from the Mac App Store
Authored by: asmeurer on Jan 13, '11 01:19:30PM

Well, the App Store has finally implemented something that even I, as power user, have been waiting for for a long time, which is a unified updating mechanism for third party applications. But if updating through the App Store is going to cripple my most used programs, then it is completely useless.

And by the way, I would rather pay for an application through the App Store than through PayPal. That has nothing to do with me being a power user or not.

10.6: Limitations of TextWrangler or BBEdit from the Mac App Store

Understand the two added benefits of a single payment venue and updating method but the App Store is still not for users looking for Power Apps like TextMate, BBEdit, etc... I truly believe that Apple's restrictions are to provided the non techie an easy to use environment just like all of it's iOS devices.
