It would be nice if developers explain how their apps actually work on their MacUpdate.com thread so we can decide right away if it’s the sort of thing we’re looking for. As it is, I’d have to download this damned thing and potentially waste 10 minutes before discovering whether it’s just like all the other such apps or not, and my time is too valuable to waste on tight-lipped developers.

It changes the visibility flag on files and the app is password protected. Invisible is for casual users, as there is no encryption.


That’s not what I mean. How does it function? Is it a menu item always in your menubar, or a little window you drop things on, or do we just drag things to its dock icon? How does it work?


You drop files onto the app. Use the trial though, that's what it's for.


I almost broke out laughing just now when I came across your comment! Only moments ago, I wrote this note in the record inside the FileMaker data base where I store serial numbers and other pertinent information about the software I buy and (sometimes) install:

"This is about the dumbest introduction to a program ever! When you launch it, it asks for a password, right off the bat. No serial numbers. Just a password. Why?

Why are developers so stupid that they don’t tell us how their applications work? Or how to use them? I have to stop bothering with these tiny, useless apps."

You tried to nicely inform developers that it is not nearly good enough for them to be able to write code that is somewhat useful, but that they also have to possess the ability and / or common sense to explain in very clear terms how the damn program works, what it is designed to do, and how a new customer who has not spent more than 10 seconds on it can be expected to know all the stuff that it took a developer (how long? days? weeks? months?) to get inside their head?

I'm tired of being nice to such people. Look what it got you. A negative frown and a smart-ass remark from the developer.

If any of them had any common sense at all, then they would stop thinking about their product from their own narrow perspective of what they did to make it work, and do a 180-degree turn-around to tell us what the damn program does for us. Better than that, every software developer ought to make a series of video that SHOW us how the software works. There are enough screen capture programs out there that you'd expect a reasonable percentage of these geeks to figure out that videos are not only the best way to market and promote their products, but they are also the best way to teach people how to use their software and get the most of it.

I feel like I've been talking to brick walls for over 20 years. That's why there is no point being "nice" to such thick-headed code warriors. Nice doesn't get in. Only a sharp whack on the side on the head might have a chance.

Or just complete avoidance of their product. After all, the burden is on them to sell us on the idea that their wares are worthwhile. That's why the marketplace is competitive. Some people figured that out, and they thrive. Others write smileys, while trying to hide their condescension of their own customer base. Screw 'em if they are just slow learners. You gave your feedback over six months ago, and it did not sink in. My comments will not sink in either, but having come here for instruction and finding nothing but rudeness and ignorance, I will vote by ignoring yet another application by yet another developer who just refuses to get it.

He's not alone. More's the pity. It's an industry-wide character flaw.


Perhaps that's why they call it invisible because how it works is invisible. Also love the cryptic explanation at mother Apple's store.

This nice program does not belong in the same category as the "similar" programs which are shown in the window below. This invisible is not to hide, but simply to show the structural invisible (system) files of the computer(and to make them invisible afterward again). The others are just to hide (yours) any file.

I.m sorry. I made a mistake. I mixed ip invisible with invisibleS! It is the opposite: invisibles(below in the "alternatives") doesn't nbelong in this category!!

Clicked the 'Buy at Apple Store', App Store pops up and..... nothing!, this app would appear to be - Invisible!

Hey, sorry you had a problem!

I just tried the link and everything works for me: page switches to the Mac App Store Preview page for Invisible, the App Store opens. Maybe the App Store was just getting its bytes together. Give it another try. :-)
