Has much more going for it than assessing sizes. It also provide duplicate cleaning, cleaning out leftover developer files from applications, cleaning out ppc codes, etc.

Definitely one of my most reliable and necessary tools. Worth every penny.

If there is one program I very much need it is Graphic Convertor. I have been using it since the week the first Intel Mac came out. I’m not an artist but I need to handle images and I can’t find a better and more simple tool with this many features. The developer is a gentleman in every way in responding to support issue. The price is a bargain for this much power.

After three years of use, I finally had to write a review of this great application. Path Finder is an app for power users, and an app for anyone who wants to be able to unleash the power of Posix systems and OS X, in one convenient control center. It is hard to be an "add-on app", and Path Finder is not that. It is hard to be a replacement for Finder, and Path Finder is not that. Path Finder allows the user to carry-out management from any level, from simple directory to integration of functions.

Finder is very limited in many areas, such as the amount of information it provides about files and particularly visual management. Understandably, Apple encourages use of underlying application integration, making it possible to simply move from app to app. Of course, this is only for those apps that they write or others write towards that feature. Path Finder is for the rest of us who want to orchestrate what is going on at the file and directory level and tap into all the amazing features of OS X without having to think about it.

I'm hooked. The various view modes and integrated file functions make it hard to work without it. If you are happy with Finder, DON'T try this app for you will find that there is a Finder on steroids. Without the occasional glitch? Of course not--but support and upgrades are timely and spot on.

I've said this before but I have to say it again--1Password is the best app on my Mac. I've used personal computers since the early 80's of every type and OS. Across those nearly 30 years I have several apps that I rank as the gold standard for their category, and for software in general. For the past 2 years, nothing has surpassed 1Password in terms of functionality (to include filling an important need), ease of use, scope of function, and regular updates and support. Designers of other apps should set this app as a mark to strive for.

Security is a growing threat and 1Password provides the user with everything that could be wanted, be he a novice or an advanced user.

This is the way every Mac app ought to be.

More than a file manager . . .
This one app offers not only an in-depth ability to manage files, it offers a load of utilities and features that could replace several other apps that I have. For those of us who have been around a long, long time, Path Finder combines all the best in file managers that I have experienced before. Finder is fine for file browsing and app launching but Path Finder gives me the opportunity to work from within one app, instead of several. No more having to open up a sizing utility, or two Finder windows, or constantly use the right mouse button (laptop lovers rejoice). The foresight of the designers have resulted in more flexibility than I could imagine--the options of each of the many optional shelves/windows allow an endless combination, giving the user a customized area of data.

I would not recommend this for novice users, as it would be like learning to drive in a Ferrari. For those who are power users, love the command line, and love having a sense of "command central," pathfinder is a must. I had thought it's price a it steep, but after a month of use, I can say that it is a bargain, especially since it saves on other utilities.

An exceptional product, in terms of quality of programming and the basic purpose of the product. Workng in Windows, Linux, and OSX, i can say that this is the best product I have found on any system. My headaches concerning security are gone. I enjoy simply using the internet, knowing that my personal data is safe, carefully enveloped in the Apple Keychain and creatively accessible by one password. I have never felt as good about a software purchase in 25 years of computer usage. 1passwd is a well-crafted response to a very strong need in the computing world. It integrates seamlessly with my online apps and,for the first time in many years, the nightmare of passwords, credit card numbers, and pins is solved. Hat's off to a product that is both a good bit of programming and a service to the community!
