Overall, one might think this is an alternative to Pathfinder (or maybe just Totalfinder, though there is also XtraFInder for free), a Grep unit, an FTP program, etc. You would be wrong.

This application started off trying to be too many things at once and even now needs work in most of them. I'm not here to provide free consulting, so I'll leave it at that and go back to Pathfinder... pricier but thrice worth it and the one to beat... or XtraFinder for the rare times I have to work within that horrible Finder.

I would notice that your critical opinion is not constructive but thank you very much for your opinion on CRAX. CRAX is not yet an alternative to the Pathfinder. CRAX at this point is an application which is much more cheaper. Perhaps features are not sufficient for you, but application is still developed and updated and updates are for free for all new versions. Is it in Pathfinder ?

Upgrades are also free. You pay once and you have active license forever. This is simple solution the same as Total Commander.

Hi, this is problem with AppStore app review procedure.
Unfortunately, it takes some time for the Apple team to review app and make it available to buy and update at the AppStore.
Sometimes it is a huge latency. It depends on the AppStore review team.

Seems like a nice little dual pane finder a/la Directory Opus DOPUS that I loved when I was using my old Amiga Computers
Quick and easy to use

I disagree with homoerectus' statement. Basically it seems to be a nice two pane file utility with remote file system support. There could be some batch file and sync operation. The GREP search is a nice feature. (For the dev: The search pattern field should have the auto update attribute set. At the moment you have to leave this field by pressing TAB to have the application recognized the new input.)

It has almost no value and should be avoided. It is no improvement at all over the FInder and in fact lacks capabilities the Finder has.

"This sucks" is not a review. It's just an opinion. An *opinion* has no star value. *Why* has CRAX no value and should be avoided? *Why* is it no improvement over the Finder? Is it supposed to be? The only claim that the developer makes is that this version is better than the last version. Next time, post your opinion as a *comment* and not as a "review."

Simply double click and the Installer App should be opened. This is standard installation package for MacOSX.

To uninstall u should simple remove Crax.app from /Applications. Another way is using the some uninstaller application AppCleaner for example/
