A rip off.
Charging this much for slapping a badly written front end on somebody else's work is a disgrace.

AlphaOmega software are a disgrace.

Now let me consider my options... I could buy this product for around $20 and get a single use utility similar to some other products that are free or donationware.

I could also spend around $40 for a complete total file maintenance product, such as FileBuddy, which comes with an integrated interface, accessible by the contextual menu, that will not only change creator and filetype but fix alias's, make files and folders invisible, batch change and correct filenames, delete protected files, find duplicates, show invisibles, change security and permissions, add comments, etc., and comes with great support.

Or I could choose pay this developer (Alpha Omega) around $50 and get licensed access to all of their software - including a lot of obsolete and next to useless programs, that no one else wants and I don't want either.

Now which is the better value? hum-mm?

Has this boy no shame? Let's see...


It's a one trick type/creator changer
It's 1.1MB
It's MwRB
It's ugly as sin


I'd be embarassed to release something with any one of those characteristics, but this fits 'em all. This whole AlphaOmega thing has got to be a scam/joke... Nobody could seriously be trying to sell such garbage.

The GUI still sucks... as does the software.

Think I'll search for free alternatives which will of much better quality.

Type and Creator changers are defending a fortress that has been vacant for years.

Yet AlphaOmega would expect payment for this.

The OS X Finder gives you every tool you need to specify what application should open a particular document.

This guy has swamped the market with twenty or more applications, and God knows if any of them are useful for ANYTHING that you should pay for. The chances are not good, from what I've seen.

and furthermore, ResEdit ;-) can change the type and creator for you if (God help you) you are still shackled to your OS 9 software.
