Your first comment talks about and only about the developer's Web site. As you said, "They have a total of 164 words describing an application they would like you to pay $79 for." My point is that you can try the app _before_ paying the $79. You weren't talking about documentation (which I agree is important) in your first comment.

I'm sorry but a demo download does NOT make up for the lack of content on the website and this part that was pointed out in the review:
"but keep in mind that there are no demo files, no brush libraries, and no help files. That’s right, the version we tested included no documentation or help of any sort, which is surprising, given that Iris seems targeted to users who are just getting started with image editing."
If we don't start demanding more from software developers then we will only see more products like this, where they give it to you and basically tell you to fend for yourself. We don't accept this from other products. Why should we accept it from a piece of software? Keep in mind that most applications have more features than the typical hardware product (cell phone, DVD player, etc.) and yet those items come with user manuals.
If they want to keep a sparse website and not include a manual then at a minimum they have to include help files. Mac|Life doesn't give out AWFUL ratings very easily so they need to go back to the drawing board with this app.

Nolobe allows you to download a fully-functional demo before you can buy it. Which is more important to me than >164 words describing the product. Just try the demo before you buy. That's how you can figure out if this application is for you.

The website for this application gives you a big hint as to the quality of the application. Unfortunately it is just one example of a growing number of applications where the author thinks they only need one page with a few bullet points to describe a complex application to their potential customers. I can't understand for the life of me how someone is supposed to figure out whether this application is for them or not by looking at 7 brief items and 3 lousy screenshots. They have a total of 164 words describing an application they would like you to pay $79 for.
