File Viewer

1.4
29 December 2013

View and identify any file on your Mac.

Overview

File Viewer is a utility that allows you to view any file on your Mac. The program natively supports over 60 file types, can play common audio and video formats, and display many image, Web, and page layout file types. File Viewer also provides hexadecimal, text, and icon views to help you inspect the contents of each file.

With File Viewer, you can identify unknown file types and locate programs that open them. The software is linked to the FileInfo.com database, which contains thousands of file extension entries. Each file that is opened in File Viewer is matched to the FileInfo.com database, and File Viewer displays a list of matched file types.

What's new in File Viewer

Version 1.4:
  • Updated for OS X 10.9

A simple app that allows for you to view many files that either Get Info might not give you information on (that you can use) or allows you to quickly see the file without having to open up a special major application. I like being able to quickly see the Hex information as well. It is needed, no; it is nice to have and in a quick, simple package, yes. I agree that Get Info for most uses is good enough for most people; I though like to have this for those times when/where I need it.

A must have utility which Apple should include in the OS. I have used this hundreds of times to identify the origins, type and specifics of unknown docs & files I find in the System Library and Library. A great tool for verifying a file relationship so unneeded or orphaned files can be removed. Goes far beyond what you get when you do a "Get Info" in OSX

Doesn't seem to do anything. A waste of $4.99 :o(

It's free not $4.99. If you don't know how to use it read the instructions. A one star rating for an app you don't understand just hurts the review process.
