I have no precise statistics about the usage.
I have just released a version that fixes a forward compatibility issue with pdf handling on mac os x 10.12 (sierra), and it has been downloaded 34 times in the past week.
I regularly get feature requests, bug reports, and even pull requests :
In fact it started with a script for my own use, and then some colleague noticed my app and asked if they could get it.
Now i regularly get emails from people I don't know (~once a week) just saying thank you for the app.
Would it help if I can gather some statistics or feedback from users?
