Preis/Leistung ist ärmlich

Viel zu teuer für die gebotenen Funktionen, wer auf das Vergleichen von Bilddateien verzichten kann und ausschließlich Texte (Code) vergleichen und mergen möchte, kann mit Meld für MAC ein kostenloses(!) und mächtigeres Tool verwenden.

Save Diffs

Please add the feature where I can save diffs, such that, when I tap on the saved diff file, I would be presented with the diffs in Kaleidoscope.

Priceless APP for anything ‘diff

Love this app, looking forward to future releases. Thanks Dev.!

So Far - all it does is crash

This is exactly what I need - but all it does is crash. Never had this problem with anything purchased here before. I now will spend a lot of time contacting Kaleidoscope Support. Not a good experience.


This App is a must have! Thanks for Jury for it!

Ive tried most of them...

… but Kaleidoscope ist the most beautiful, simpliest to use, but still powerfull file merge application. OK, it is (with the original price) rather expensive, but Ive got the chance to buy it with 50% discount. It is a great tool, and it will save you a lot of hustle.

Exportfunktion fehlt mir noch...

Die Applikation funktioniert bestens, lässt nur einen Wunsch offen: Ich würde gerne das Ergebnis des Vergleiches (Beispiel: Zwei Word-Dokumente werden verglichen.) gerne als PDF- oder HTML-File speichern können. Druckfunktion, über die man das ggfls. auch erledigen könnte, ist auch nicht vorhanden. Wenn diese Funktionalität noch hinzukäme, wäre mir das das fehlende Sternchen wert! Ansonsten: Sehr guter Job!
