I’ve used the term ‘delightful’ to describe an app maybe twice in the past 15 years, and I hate people who abuse such term. (Today *every little thing* online is awesome amazing delightful), but man, TextBuddy is a real workflow-booster for a text fiend like me!– Riccardo Mori
I tried it out for 5 minutes and immediately purchased.–Brett Terpstra
I find this insanely obvious as a product. I’m considering updating my Mac to Big Sur just to run this. It’s all the text manipulation I run from the CLI without having to look up syntax.Hacker News comment
