Funter overview

Funter is a small and efficient tool for operations on hidden files and folders. You can find hidden files, switch hidden files' visibility in Finder, hide files, copy, move, or remove them. This utility makes it quick and easy to switch between default and visible items. It even allows you to find the user's Library, which is hidden by default on OS X. Funter can be launched at system start-up.

It is targeted for all Mac users who are looking for the simplest way to find invisible files. IT professionals, engineers, programmers, and Web developers will find it especially beneficial.

Use Funter to:
  • Show hidden files
  • Search hidden files
  • Search files in hidden and system folders
  • Search files in packages and bundles
  • Hide your files

Very, very fast, easy to use and FREE. I used it to find many things I couldn't dig out with the Finder, Spotlight or EasyFinder. Dropped one star because of it's weird way of using the menubar and needing to be quit manually. It offers far more than a way to show invisible files and folders

I don't see the point of this. You can just hit CMD + SHIFT + . to toggle invisible files.

Version 2.5 under Sierra sucked up all available memory when scanning for remaining disk space on my MacPro and slowed my machine to a slow crawl.

Why does an app which is supposed to just show/hide files always use up ~3 to 6% of my CPU? I mean.. What is it doing? It surely shouldn't be doing anything when its just there in the background?

It works and I'll change my review score if they answer this.. but it's pretty weird.. Even things like Alfred don't use this much background CPU..

I don`t like using Terminal, so this app is a great helper for me to hide and unhide files in the quickest way.

My junior brother would like to use my laptop often, and I, of course, allow him, as he doesn't have his own mac. After such "another user" I sometimes just can't find some necessary files. So, this app is like a savior in those cases. I'm glad to have it on my mac.

Downloaded to test for someone else, I prefer firing up terminal.... I *really* dislike the app throwing up notifications about disk cleanup etc , and also don't like the ads to other apps within the app. Not a fan sorry.

Funter and other software like DesktopUtility are surely valuable for users. But the best thing (at least in my humble opinion) is to get to know your OS and find out how to do all these things from the command line, you know, actually *learn* something. Then you might want to program/script stuff yourself, access commands like show/hide invisible files e.g. in BitBar running your own script, or using workflows in the Finder. And then publish your stuff on Github, so we can all benefit. :)

Yesterday I downloaded and used Funter once. It wasn't what I was looking for and I deleted both app and prefs. Today I have a request from Automountd to connect to port 111 (sunrpc) , protocol 17 UDP to domain funter.app. What's that?!? I don't have the app anymore. Where is the ghost trying to connect my computer and where?

DesktopUtility does the exact same thing for free, but in addition to 'Hide/Unhide Invisible Files,’ it throws in the ‘Hide User Library’ and ‘Force Empty Trash’ commands to its menubar item's menu. That last one is at least as useful as hiding/showing invisible files. http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/38299/desktoputility

I need the utility which switch on/off show hidden files by one click. I have compared a lot of tools called like "Hidden Files". And found that Funter is just what I want. Great idea to put the button to the Menu bar! Thanks, guys.

Yes, without detail description... Just an icon with one command on main menu that switches displaying hiddens. I could escape from using terminal command to switch the mode. Thnks! P.S. use the terminal command to do the same "defaults com.apple.finder ShowAllFiles true"
