What's New
Version 6.0:
  • A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with OS X 10.7 and later.
  • A full recompilation has been made again as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
  • Minor bugs have been corrected.
  • The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the application in particular under OS X 10.8 and OS X 10.9:
  • Under OS X 10.8 and OS X 10.9, if you're launching the application for the first time, maybe OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developer).
  • NB: We're not distributing our applications through the Mac App Store, because Apple's fees policy on the Mac App Store is not financially respectful of developers and small and medium companies.

I'm amazed that MacUpdate hasn't banned these guys after all their years of bilking Mac users.

If they're back in circulation there's been a jail-break at Alcatraz!

Instead of shelling out the absurd price of $20 for this simple one trick pony, you could pay merely $9 for Tiger Cache Cleaner; it's an excellent system maintenance app which INCLUDES a pixel testing feature, along with other nifty, useful features not available in other maintenance apps. And it's also PPC/Intel friendly.
But if you'd rather piss away your $20 on Pixel Tester
3.4(and I can't imagine why), then the pleasure is yours.

So, still $20(15 Euros) for this redundant little trifle..... a most pedestrian pixel tester, which is easily available for free from other developers, eh, Alpha Omega Software? Well, in the words of the French guard in scene 8 of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, "I FART in your general direction!". Feh!!!!

Another reinvention of the wheel(and a simple wheel, at that), RIDICULOUSLY OVERPRICED at $20 from a company that charges that amount for all their software, including (now get this!) a Startup Chime Stopper(I've been using the FREE and excellent "Psst!").
There are a number of FREE pixel testers that work just fine; just do a MacUpdate search.
Hey developer, I dare you to justify charging $20 for this....no, I double dare you!
The company's name is "AlphaOmega", as in the "beginning and the end". I guess the developer means the first and last word in software, no?
Well, it's the first and last word in CHUTZPAH!
Ya know, I think I'll avoid buying ANY software from this developer.....just 'cause I feel like it!
God, this really bummed me out.

You have got to be kidding. I might as well help that guy in Africa get his dad's funds out of the country...

Total scam. Free alternatives and the program has about 5 lines of code... if you count comments...

Pathetic attempt to try and get our hard earned cash. Do yourself a favour and save your money.

This guy should be blacklisted!

Crashed on my Powerbook.

Anyway I'm not paying $5 for this, there are hundreds of free apps that do the same thing.

Why pay for this when they are a simple straightforward program that will do the same for free?

Give the guy a break! This software does what it says, you don't have to download it if you don't want to. And by all means, don't slander it. Im giving it a good score because it does what it says, and does it well.

I will give the moron a break when he stops posting phony 5-star reviews and charging for a lousy software which is either available as freeware elsewhere (and better) or duplicates an already existing OS X-built function (an AlphaOmega favorite) .. Here is the reply to a comment I posted:

We at MacUpdate.com are aware that the "AlphaOmega" developer has, upon occasion, posted in the reviews of his own apps... giving very positive reviews of his own apps. We do our best to assure that his "reviews" are deleted but sometimes he slips one by us. Please do report this sort of behaviour to us here at MacUpdate.com... Thanks.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
