Looks like a lot of functionality packed into one device, but I would primarily be interested in the oscilloscope.  Does it trigger reliably for single-shot events at a high sampling rate?  That’s a weakness that I’m living with for a dual-channel scope at half the price of the BS05 above.

I have been using BitScope for 6 months (on Mac) and over that time learned a few nasty bugs. In the lower right corner of your screenshots there are two controls (right under OSCILLOSCOPE widget): timing and frequency. Supposedly, these are set automatically but should also be user controlled. When you attempt modifying any of these your Mac will issue a violation error pop-up.
Regarding protocol analyzer, the company actually does offer the BitScope Logic freeware (http://www.bitscope.com/software/logic/) for this purpose. It works fine for slow signals, but it suffers from the same bug the DSO software does: it is impossible to manually set the higher bit rate! Thus, it is practically useless for analyzing the SPI protocol of my speedy 16 MHz Arduino Mega.
Bugs happen, I know, but what’s disappointing is that they still persist many months after being reported! I send numerous support messages on these issues, but all I am getting back are empty promises of “it will be fixed”... :(
