Hidden Files is a little application that does one job: shows up those annoying hidden files that Mac OS X puts all over the place on your formerly pristine hard disk. Not that you should delete 'em, of course (unless you're a fully-qualified Mac Ninja, that is). We're just saying...

Simple, elegant, not too pretty but hey …. I works and continues to work! My only problem is that the developer's web site can't be reached. Despite this being a Free application, I've used it enough and it works well enough I would like to make a donation, as Thank You. Where are you Hostingforoz?

It would sure be nice if the developer explained here HOW Hidden Files actually operates. Nevertheless, thanks for offering this for free.

This is a really nice and simple application. As a beginning developer, I am trying to write an application with this function, but still haven't figured out how to implement the correct scripts. If you don't mind asking, how did you write your app?

While I have no issue with the app itself, what it does, or how it does it, I do have an issue with the viability of the app or why it was written in the first place, other than for the developers self educational purposes. There are already many paid and free apps available that do this exact thing - and more. Why does the Mac community need another separate app for this that just sets a single value of a parameter file? If an unique app was made for individuality setting each parameter on a Mac then their might be hundreds or even thousands of such apps, The logistics of this would be incredible if not insane. Hopefully the developer will be able to concentrate their efforts on something more encompassing, unique or useful in the future and as such make a more viable contribution.

This application was one of the very first apps i made when i first started programming, i thought i'd submit it so others can use it. Never knew there was tons of other applications that do the exact same thing. If you have any ideas for mac applications, if you tell me i might just be able to make them

Works perfectly, does what it is supposed to do, nothing more, nothing less. I've used it several times and have not come across any problems so far.
