I was pretty floored by the response to VoodooPad 5's release. I really didn't expect it to make much of a dent- but I was sent tons of positive feedback and sales were much better than I anticipated. The Mac App Store even featured it last week. So thanks to everyone who purchased it and sent in feedback!

Nobody complained about VoodooPad Lite not making the jump to version 5- so I think that was a good move on my part. And swapping out the old page event system with a new one based on JavaScript seems to be a hit. I keep on seeing interesting bits of code that people are writing in VP to automate things.

Another thing I wasn't expecting was the response to adding Markdown as a page type in VP5. Turns out tons and tons of people really wanted this- much more than I would have figured. I think I'll be spending more time in future releases making Markdown even better (5.0.2 has some improvements in this area, as I'm starting to get hooked onto Markdown myself).

I've also recently released VoodooPad 5.0.1 which fixed some pretty important bugs, and I'm currently finishing up 5.0.2. VoodooPad for iOS 2.0.1 was also released today- so if you've been running into any issues with Dropbox syncing, make sure to update.

For fun, here's a couple of recent reviews of VP5:
