The application launches very fast and that is a welcome change from several other frequently used applications I use that don’t launch very quickly so it was refreshing to see this application launch so fast. The initial view is a list of elements used in developing Cascading Style Sheets or CSS.
Scrolling up and down through the list is straightforward and selecting an individual element takes you into a detail view for that item which lists a description of the item as well as example usage.
The detail view lists each value associated with the particular element and a detailed example of it’s use. I like that Concentric Sky cheat sheets are self contained applications. What I mean by that is that they don’t have to have an Internet connection. All of the information is stored internal to the application so it’s nice to be able to pull it up on the bus and browse a little if you pickup a cheat sheet on a topic that your just getting into.
There is a search bar at the top that lets you quickly locate items in the list to save you some scrolling. The search seems to only search the main list Category name or list item with the search term matching from the start of the category or term. For instance I searched for “color” and it didn’t locate “background-color” but found all items in the “Color” category and also the “color” entry under the text category. This isn’t really limiting but I found it interesting enough to note.
Concentric Sky has a number of other cheat sheets you can checkout here at their web site: [Cheat Sheet Products] If you find a Cheat Sheet for a topic your interested in or learning it’s an easy decision to pick up these great little references for 99 cents each.
