Review by azwiki

Fast, very detailed file report info, no regex, no export. - This app is fast, very fast. It can find and replace, but seems like you can’t use regular expressions. It gave me more details about the file than anything I’ve used before. I hope that author will add export to txt file, right now you can only print the file info to PDF, so this feature is preatty much useless.

Version 2.3
Review by My Night Sight

Ripped off open source without attribution - On the one hand, it’s nice to see an easily accessible hex editor in the Mac Store. On the other hand, all this app has done is take the BSD open source code for Hex Fiend, compiled it, *removed the attribution and copyright and any acknowledgement of the author*, and posted it here. But pointing to their own web site. They even directly copied the marketing points verbatim from the open source project. Please don’t reward this type of behavior.

Version 2.3
Review by rtharston

DO NOT DOWNLOAD - Thisi is a great program. It is powerful and easy to use. It is also actually called Hex Fiend and it is open source. Google Hex Fiend. You will find it on ridicoulusfish’s website. Also for free. With his name on it. iHex is so shameless it even uses the same version number. I downloaded this before realizing what it was but it took two seconds to realize. Every single thing is the same as Hex Fiend. The only thing that changed is the name. That is it. Oh, and the fact that it is a rip off. Read the other reviews. Give this one star to help warn others away. And go supoport the real developer. I hope Apple removes this from the store. This is piracy at its worst. Shameless.

Shameless rip-off - Very poor form to not credit the original developer of Hex Fiend. It would have been better if you had kept the attribution and charged money for the app.

Version 2.3
Review by Shimunogora

Just what I needed! - I often collect high resolution album art scans and the like. After doing a day of collecting I realized that in the process of renaming the files I was truncating the file extensions without realizing it. Oops! I hopped onto the App Store and found this fantastic piece of software. After looking up the file signatures for jpg and png, I was able to successfully give all my files the correct extensions with ease. In fact, I also fixed up a few files that were uploaded with the wrong extension to begin with! I didn’t use any of the advanced features, but if you’re in a similar situation as me I would highly recommend this software. HOWEVER! This is indeed not much more than a copy-paste of Hex Fiend, and from what I can tell it does not abide by or acknowledge the two-clause BSD license. It’s so, so simple to follow it and the license gives a lot of freedom. Uunfortunately the author did not bother to give the slightest amount of acknolwedgement to the original creator(s). I would not recommend downloading this unless for whatever reason you do not have a choice in the matter.

Review by StevenCee

No Directions Whatsoever? - Is everyone supposed to instinctively know exactly how this works? I sure don’t, and there’s no Help file, and their web site doesn’t even mention this product, so no help there… Kinda makes this useless, at this point.
