Coda and the MAS ➣

300 Words / 2 Minutes

Unfortunately, though, we’ve run out of time.

Coda 2.5 is essentially complete. But, we’re still encountering sandboxing challenges. So, in the interest of finally getting Coda 2.5 out the door and in the hands of you, our very eager and patient customers, we’ve decided it’s time to move on—for now.

In short: Coda 2.5 will not be sandboxed, and therefore will not be available in the Mac App Store.

If you don’t know what Coda is, then you are years away from a pixel perfect design for your website, because Coda is the perfect tool for developers and designers who are looking for perfection, pixel perfect design, and feature rich app.

It’s sad to see that Coda is going to be out of the Mac App Store due to sandboxing.

The great news is that this is not the end, it’s the start of something new, something much better bcuz the developers are not following Apple’s rules that could limit what Coda can do for you, or prevent the addition of new great features.

so we’ve spent many months working on Panic Sync, our own super-easy, super-secure syncing solution that gives you power over your data. And Panic Sync will work between Panic apps—Coda and Diet Coda to start.

The first thing Panic added to its great app is their own syncing service, leaving iCloud behind ((simply iCloud is evil)) to allow users to sync all their project from Coda on OSX to Coda Diet on the iPad.

And the best thing about this is:

In short, we’ll trade you iCloud for something great.

I guess we can’t ask for anything more.
