RB App Checker Lite

Version 1.1.6

Ensure your applications are properly signed.

RB App Checker Lite overview

RB App Checker Lite helps users and developers to check code signatures and receipts for applications from any source. It will show certificates, requirements and entitlements, cross-check all this information for consistency, and check that the application's resources have not been altered after signing.

Check if your application is properly signed before submitting it to the App Store or publishing it elsewhere, or if the application you downloaded has been tampered with.

For your convenience, RB App Checker Lite also publishes a Service (right-click on any application in the Finder) and has a fast-select menu for all running applications.

RB App Checker Lite will also work for Xcode archives, frameworks, command-line executables, installer packages, and most other bundles containing executable code.

The results will be shown as a text report, with pop-up buttons explaining details.

Version: 1.1.5
This is an excellent utility that lets you see if some file (i.e. app) is signed and shows all certificates in the chain. It also checks that some bundle resource have not been altered after signing.

With macOS 10.12 (and El Capitan 10.11.5) it would be great if the developer allow checking of signed dmg files, which Apple now require from all developers.

@Macupdate, this app is now v1.1.6 (3/19/2016).

About half an hour ago i dropped Apple's Garage Band ( 10.0.3 ) and RB App Checker is still checking. So, if i wait another half an hour what do i do if Apple's G B fails to get the green check mark ?
