RhinoTyper is a small utility that allows users to edit the file types and creator codes of files on their computers. RhinoTyper allows users to modify file types and creator codes in three ways: by matching a selected file to any other file on the computer, by choosing from a list of file types and creator codes for common applications, or by manually entering the file type and creator code.

Not really polished enough to merit a shareware fee. The date-changing interface is fairly primitive, failing to present the current information so that the user may change only desired portions.

Nag-ware in general is a poor strategy for inducing testers to pay the shareware fee.

The above two points completely ignore the fact that OS X has moved irreversibly from the type-creator mode to the use of file extensions, and that attaching files to applications is already well-taken-care-of in the Finder Info window or Inspector. And, given the UNIX underneath the Finder interface, why leave out modification of file system permissions? If you want to give the user an opportunity to fsck up his/her file system, you shouldn't hold back.

As for why someone actually WOULD want to change file-creation and -modification dates... ???

Given those points, the app really needs a drag-and-drop interface and more adequate presentation of current file data.
