Great app. Does what is says it does. - This app does what it says it does. It provides information for opening any app that can be opened on a Mac (no .exe, etc.). Perhaps the name of the app is giving the wrong impression and the low ratings. I’d suggest a rename to “File Diag” (to match their Disk Diag app), “Hexdump+”, or perhaps “File X-ray”. I have three minor suggestions for the next version: 1) add the permissions (e.g. -rwxrwxrwx 777) on the file in the FIle Information section, 2) move the Hexdump section to a tab on the same window so that you can see more of the hex dump strings without scrolling as much, 3) allow searching on ASCII strings in the hexdump so you can find error messages, filename, paths, easier than scrolling through the whole hexdump.

Acts like a malware - This open file app took control over my Mac. Now if I want to install something the app simply opens and it is blocking me. DO NOT INSTALL. You will not get rid of it.

Opened .PDF when Peview wouldn’t - I upgraded to High Sierra this weekend and now Preview doesn’t open old tax statements that were in the .PDF format that it used to be able to open with the last operating system. Thankfully, this app was able to open old W-2 statements. I'm currently working on reporting the bug to Apple.

Useless - I’m unable to open an .xlsx file on my computer. All this app does is recommend that I open the file in Excel. Well, DUH!!! If I could do that, I wouldn’t have downloaded this app.

Review by FoxyIam

Possible malware file disguised as a utility app!!! - It tries to take control of all files, blocking access to native apps.., and doesn’t work well on the few files I tried to open with it.. The app, Malware bytes, reported it as a “fake file opener” so It was quarantined and thrown in the trash..
