Con UI for settings can be confusing
The settings for the app are pretty jumbled and are hard to get a grip of, especially for first time users. While all the settings one would need are there, they are difficult to find or understand, which requires a good bit of playing around with the settings in order to get a feel for them and what they offer.
Moom is not free: it costs $9.99.
Con Two steps needed, while some tools only need one
Con No multiple query tabs
Sequel Pro does not support multiple query tabs in its editor. This is incredibly frustrating for a power user.
