or that it is written to be used in an unusual way - maybe because its purpose
is not similar to a word processor or a spreadsheet so its interface may not be
familiar - take Blender, or watch a film editor using Final Cut Pro. In the case
of FCP there is also a click-around interface (Apple has a big budget and can
afford the development time to do both) but it is very much less efficient, and
teaching FCP to aspiring editors means teaching them the proper interface, not
the pretty face.
but I have opened quite a few apps with nice user GUI interfaces and extremely
limited, and often buggy implementations - which you only discover once you
start to try to do something real, using the manual, rather than click around
exploring. Of course that is after you have paid for it, if it was a commercial
app. If you were going to buy it you would probably have looked at comments and
reviews first, and found out then if you were interested or not.
yes, one crashed immediately - not a good sign. Either the app was not good, or
it was not properly installed on your system, did you ever find out which?
