Some quirks you should know about:

1. Your emulator does not truly emulate iPad, especially when it comes to CSS. Also of note is the inability to delete "All" watches in the debugger.
2. There is a bug somewhere in the cache logic. Under Chrome, if debugger is already loaded, it always retrieves a fresh copy from server. Under the iPad emulator, cache copy is used when pressing F5, resulting in a maddening waste of debugging time. I have all the cache settings set properly and. It seems the only way to truly flush cache is to exit from Electric Plum Studio and reload (very time consuming).

Your product has the potential to be a useful tool, but the issues cited above greatly detract from it.

    #2 You can choose to disable the cache in dev tools.


    Thanks for the feedback.

    I did disable (or tried to disable) cache in dev tools but that had no effect. The only solution was to exit Studio and reload.

    Unless you resolve the bugs in cache handling, this product is ineffective. I waste too much time debugging your cache handling. When I have a problem, I do NOT know if the problem is a bug in cache processing or a bug in my software. Counterproductive! I would not accept this in a shareware product, so I cannot accept it in a product I paid for. Your 7-day trial limit is the cause of this. It should be 30-days. That is more realistic. However, I realize what a dent that would put into your sales.

    The support has been poor and I can't even be assured that the product is under active development to fix such bugs as the cache bugs. It does not give me a very warm and comfortable feeling. You should have released this product as shareware.
