In Finder's Find list, I can move the selected items to the Trash with the contextual menu or Command-Delete.

I'd like the same ability from a Tembo list.

Hi!

Thank you for the feedback.

I unfortunately see no way of implementing this feature while staying within the Apple Mac App Store guidelines. The problem is caused by access right to the files. If you lack sufficient right, the Finder will prompt for an administrator password. Third party apps sold through the store however are not allowed to do so.

2. No upgrade pricing.
3. Useful app features restricted by the App Store gatekeepers.
4. Releases delayed by the gatekeepers.
5. Garish App Store home page that screams games, Games, GAMES!
6. App Store app has no user preferences (e.g., no games).
7. ...

Hi!

I am working on a version of Tembo that can be sold outside the Mac App Store.

The idea is however to keep feature parity between both versions. That version should serve as demo version leaving the customer a choice of where to purchase. I don't want the customer to see demoed features vanish when he/she makes the choice to buy from the Mac App Store.

Best,
