Pro Sync snippets through Dropbox
Sync through iCloud.
Pro Alfred Integration
Makes for extremely fast pasting of code snippets and SQL queries.
Pro Great Language Support
Supports almost every language that you can think of.
Pro Fragments support
The ability to add sub-snippets within an entry is something I did not realize that could be so useful. Many other similar products lack this feature.

Nice UI options that let you hide certain things, go compact, hide notes and tags etc.
Pro Option to add your own Markdown stylesheet.
Pro A lot of customization options, the menubar assistant is amazing
Easy to customize many things such as how editing, search, and the menubar app works. New theme customizations.
Pro Not a bad UI
Con Lacking support for other platforms
Con No iOs version available
Con Closed source
Con No support for placeholders in snippets
Con No gist batch support
Con You cannot create Tag Groups
Tag Groups enhance usability once a lot of tags have been collected
Con Bad gist import
Gist import data isn't adaptable. So the imported snippets could get named very ugly.
Con Seldom updated or improved
There are no frequent updates/improvements.
Con Tag support is squirrly
You can add tags, but there's no auto-complete when you're filling them in, so you can easily make sure you're adding to the same tag(s) that already exist.
Con ZERO Support
Any and all messages sent to the developer go straight to DEV>NULL.
Con NEVER updated anymore
Missing many newer languages. (I'd go as far as to say it's abandonware).
Con No Linux version
There is no Linux version of the software.
