So what?  Soliciting bug reports is beneficial for users and for the  
developer, providing the developer acts on them.  I submit bug reports  
and feature requests to commercial software developers regularly, if  
they provide a mechanism for it and have demonstrated that it's worth  
my time.  Apple is seldom responsive, but visualdatatools.com, wavemetrics.com 
, and stone.com are great examples of well-supported commercial  

In a quick trial this morning, TeXWriter appears to have some neat  
features.  I loaded a master .tex file into it, and it appeared to  
find all the included files and construct an outline view of the  
document.  Errors are also displayed per-file in an outline, which I  
think is a great idea.  It'll be interesting to see how it develops.
