$20 is a trivial amount of money. If I had a project where I needed something like Atlas I'd happily pay twice that. If it could save me a few of hours on one project I'd have made my money back several times over.

It is $20, and your program expires after 3 month. That's overpriced.

I (and others) obviously disagree. Overpriced is a subjective term. Without knowing how many they've sold and how much revenue they'd hoped to make one cannot really discuss the validity of the pricing strategy.

Just because it's more than you (and others) are willing to pay doesn't mean it's overpriced.

Well, I would also say it's too expensive.

It is beta...
(from some betas you ear money)

Cappuccino which seems to do most oft the stuff is cross platform, free and open source.

Even if it does look nice I doubt it really saves you that much work/time.

Maybe open sourcing it would be good, else I'll create an open source version ;-)
