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.

Repeat: Old thieves never die; they just come back to rob you again. EVERY AplhaOmega product is poorly written, overpriced, and available elsewhere with more and better functionality and for free...often within the OS, itself. Buyer beware!

THESE THIEVES ARE BACK...AGAIN! WON'T THEY EVER GO AWAY? Every once in a while, these guys inflict themselves on the Mac community and then disappear, presumably after a few suckers have plunked down too many of their hard-earned dollars for too little quality and functionality. ANYTHING an AlphaOmega app does can be had elsewhere...better and cheaper!!!

THOROUGHLY BOGUS Before you pay the thieves at AlphaOmega a penny, learn free ways to do the same thing.

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.
