I don’t write reviews often, but I had to for this one. It’s free, and it’s a major upgrade to textedit. The cursor color actually changes with the font color, so you won’t lose your cursor in a black background. And the tab bar keeps all the open text documents organized. This app fits my needs perfectly - I don’t do any coding, I just take a lot of notes on reading materials. Really love this app, hoping the developer sticks with it and keeps it updated for future versions of Mac! If so, I plan to use it for a long time.

There's still a few things that I would like for this text editor to have: -Lion fullscreen support -Lion auto save / versions -A preference to turn on displaying the cursor position in lines / characters. Also there's a major problem right now on my Mid 2010 MBP. Every time I open Tincta it switches over to my discrete graphics, so no using this if I want to save battery.

This is a great program. I first downloaded it thinking I would use it for something because I am getting my bachelor for web and Interactive Media Design. In only a few weeks I was downloading documents that were for Tincta and I thought, hhhhmmm... lets see how this works. I opened it and immediatly I see that with syntaxt options this program is by far better and easier to use than a regular text editor for writing script and code. I am very happy with it and glad I made the decision to give it a try. Thanks Tincta!

This is a great program and certainly is the best Syntax Highlighting notepad on Mac. I only have a few issues which are the lack of SFTP/FTP support and the undo function dosn't under correctly. It will place text in different positions, remove empty space and sometimes through characters in there like (*, /, \, -, #, $, !, @, &, ^) just to name a few. And once in a while it throghs random chanracters not even on the keyboard like ©ƒ˜∫¥ˆå¶ø‘“¡¢•§–. Its really weird. Overall this is a great app and I will revise this when those things get fixed

While I would not recommend this for big projects, anyone who is looking for a great little text editor with syntax hilghlighting and many other useful tools, this is a great choice. A few things it is missing that would be nice to have would be in-line running of scripts from scripting languages (like Ruby, Python, etc), and maybe even compiling of one file C/C++ apps. This would make it an ideal tool for those doing rapid prototyping. If this were coupled with some sort of project management, this would be a strong competitor for medium sized projects.

I really like the functionality and layout of this program. However, when I start to scroll it always crashes :( Would love to start using again if this is fixed.

Great app! Extremely useful, now I keep it open all the time. Excellent syntax coloring in all languages. Very lightweight and fast. A good replacement for Dashboard which doesn’t work in 10.13. Two things it can’t do: 1) It can only open one file at a time. No multiple windows! 2) You can’t click on the title bar to open the file’s container. Minor failings. All in all highly recommended.

This is awesome! TextEdit has a serious problem converting ".html" files to ".txt" when saving… this is WAY easier to use and it's more reliable :)

I could no longer stand Apple's text editor after upgrading to Lion. WAY too slow. DL'ed this app and it's great! Launches super fast and works great.
