“I’ve used similar apps, but none of them ever stuck for me. Trickster smooths out the process and fills in the missing features. I’m using it every day now.”

“Trickster feels really well designed. I'm pretty picky about apps that I let keep an icon in my status bar, but Trickster has earned a spot there.”

“Where Trickster does the trick for me is with its keyboard navigation.”

“Incredibly useful, nicely designed.”

- Jean MacDonald,
