Smultron is a simple text editor which is suitable for everyone from scriptwriters to programmers.

Whether its web programming, script editing or simply making a to do list, Smultron should fit the bill. Smultron uses an iTunes style viewer so you can easily switch between documents or just display them as tabs.

Although Smultron is suitable for basic text editing, it excels at programming because it codes language in different colors depending on what it represents.

It also allows you to compare two sets of code or text by allowing you to compare them side by side in a split-view window. Finally, it also allows you to preview HTML before you publish it to the web.

Although Smultron used to be free, the latest version requires payment and is only available on the Mac App store. Note that version 4 only works on Lion but versions are available for Mountain Lion and Mavericks.

    "Not Free"

    The button says "Free Download!" But then you are directed to the Apple Store, where you have to pay $... More.
