It's now freeware go to the developers page and you will see it. There is not a OS X version though!!!
Anyway you are right who is going to pay for something that it is already free....

This is more of a comment, not really a revue or anything.

I think the reason why this is getting a lot of negative comments is the following:

1) This is free on OS X (via terminal)

2) This is free on OS 9 (some app called shorten)

3) It's 10 bucks.

4) OS 9 is basically dead. Only a small group use it. Those who are on that platform probably won't be needing md5.

5) For those on OS X needing md5, for the most part they would be the type who also would be knowledgeable of the terminal.

6) It's 10 dollars.


I think it's pointless to post any more bad comments, and also bad ratings. At the same time, from the feedback you've received so far, I'd ask the developer to rethink his/her approach to this solution. This would appeal to a small group I think, and I'm not sure if they'd be willing to pay a shareware fee of the current price for what this does. I realize that you have done a lot of work on it, it does look useful, but.. *shrug*

This was likely done in RealBasic. Judging from the screenshot, it took a few hours, tops.

This is completely ridiculous. OS X comes with a free MD5 tool (actually, 2 of them). I'm 100% sure you can get a free md5 tool for both Windows and OS 9. And as for cross-platform checkfiles, all it consists of is the MD5 checksum itself, which is cross-platform. There is absolutely *no* reason why anybody should have to pay $10 for an app that simply does the same thing that you can get for free quite easily.

So, the "developer" wants $10 for something that I can do for free with one simple Terminal command...

You can use the commandline command "md5" which is preinstalled on almost all UNIX like platforms, including MacOS X.

And is free.

I have a sack of air that the author can have the privilege of using. It will however nag him for money every 5 minutes, and won't let him inhale from the sack, only exhale...

Later today/tomorrow, I will release another version. Totally FREE, with no restrictions. I have made $0.00 from it, but that was not the point of writing it. I wanted a utility to md5 files, that was cross platform compatible. A OS X version **will** be released as soon as I manage to install OS X on a machine..(when time permits). I was ***NEVER*** in it it for the money, just having something "standard" between all platforms.

I'm sure all 3 OS9 users other than you have little need for md5, since there's nothing new to download for OS9, and hasn't been for quite some time.

"Shorten" for Mac OS v8.x.x & Mac OS v9.x.x can produce MD5 checksums of files and it is free.

Under Mac OS X you can use

openssl md5

in the Terminal.

10 US$, - for what please!?

are the check files cross platform compatible?

Dude, MD5 is the same on all platforms. If a checkfile is just the checksum, then yes, it's cross-platform.
