I had a quick look at it and it looks quite nice, but the obvious 
question for me is: Does it offer anything over TeXShop or iTeXMac? 
 From my short glance I can't tell that.

And since we're already at: What's the state of these two apps? Can we 
expect any updates in the next time? There's little to none information 
on their homepages.
