    Hi everyone,

    I want to quickly introduce a new tool that just landed on the App Store. It is called Proxy.app. We can proudly say that we have put all of our hearts into making this tool.

    Proxy.app is a HTTP intercepting proxy similar to Burp, ZAP and Charles but completely native, i.e. it is not based on Java and therefore it can take full advantage of all kinds of native features. Proxy.app was born out of necessity. Given that many developers these days spend most of their time testing and building web applications primarily on Mac the need for a native OS X proxy had become an itch we could no longer bear.

    After several months of hard work and two unsuccessful launches on the App Store we are happy to announce that Proxy.app has arrived and it is looking good. The tool has been available on the App Store since last Thursday and it had already gathered a lot of traction. The community was also very supportive, bombarding us with ideas how to make the tool even better. It is currently ranking in the top categories.

    The key features of Proxy.app are:

    * It is completely native from start to finish. It is written in compact and optimised Objective-C.
    * Proxy.app is fast because of its native roots. You cannot beat native code on performance.
    * The tool is fully integrated into Mac OS X. Proxy.app uses the Keychain APIs, native file formats and native user interface components.
    * There is SSL interception out of the box. Everything that has to do with SSL is controlled from the Keychain.
    * The tool comes with colouring schemes, rich request and response editor and other UI tools that simplify usage.
    * The interception mode allows you to cut through requests and responses and modify data in transit.
    * Proxy.app is non-blocking from start to finish. You do not need to wait for things to be queued in any order.

    You can get an idea of what it looks like from the official page:

    Thanks for the attention and let us know what is your impression and if you have any feedback for us.

    Where were you a week ago???

    I got tired of getting prompted to buy Charles. I love the app, but it's a bit much to pay for out of pocket when I only need it once a month max.

    I ended up buying another proxy for much, much less. But it doesn't do SSL out of the box.

    Will definitely give Proxy.app a look when I get a chance.

    Edit: you're kidding me? I was shopping for apps on Wednesday and you released this on Thursday? :)
