I downloaded MarsEdit and tried to run it. Nope, my trial has expired. I'd tried an earlier version, years ago, and it clearly wasn't ready for use. Apparently, that's all the trial I'll ever get.
This is so dumb it's sad. Each significant update, at the very least, should have a renewed trial period. Best of all:
1. New trial period for each major release.I'm still waiting for someone to clone Microsoft's Live Writer ...
2. Trial period is 30 uses, not 15 days.
3. After end of trial period can still try the app again, but now it's limited -- so you you can test it but not exploit it.
Update 6/6/07: Hoisted from the comments:
For now, if you're still interested in giving it another spin, you should be able to get a fresh start by removing the Application Support and Preferences file for MarsEdit:I'll give it another try!
[Home] -> Library -> Application Support -> MarsEdit
[Home] -> Library -> Preferences -> com.ranchero.marsedit.plist
Update 6/11/07: The good news is I was able to try it out, and it did an excellent job fetching blogger posts. The lesser bad news is that you can't save as draft to blogger, drafts are local to the file system. The bigger bad news is that it's not a wysiwyg editor, it's an html editor that doesn't emulate paragraphs. For my purposes Camino with Blogger's native editing controls is a better option.
