What's New
Version 5.0:
  • A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with OS X 10.7 Lion.
  • A full recompilation has been made again as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
  • The seconds have been added in the times.
  • The access date and time has been added.
  • The data size and resources size is displayed.
  • The "How to install it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the application in particular under OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion:
  • Under OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 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).

A rip off.
Charging this much for slapping a badly written front end on somebody else's work is a disgrace.

AlphaOmega software are a disgrace.

This thing is kind of Buggy. The 'set to now' box works in a different time zone or is not set to recognize AM vs PM. At any rate anything after noon will show as the next day. Suggest manually entering date and time which seems to work fine. I used 24 hr clock times and they show up as regular AM PM in finder.

As for the previous review I found that most File Information is locked by default and must be unlocked using your system password before you can change the creation date. The modification date seems to work fine without unlocking (previous bug not withstanding).

I would not pay for this application in it's current form but for the occasional date change (usually) for sorting reasons in Finder) I can live with the nag.

Useless. Won't change file permissions. As soon as you apply changes, they go back to "????".

And yes, I have read/write privileges for the file.
